Our History

Established in 2019, Sacramento Jetboat Excursions is our newest addition to the family; joining our sister company Hellgate Jetboat Excursions which was launched in 1959.

Hellgate Jetboat Excursions was one of the first-ever jetboat companies in the United States. Robert Hamlyn originally started operating jet boats in 1986 with Rogue Jetboat Excursions; which is now owned in conjunction with, and is more widely known as Hellgate Jetboat Excursions. Hellgate Jetboat Excursions currently operates as the Pacific Northwest’s #1 River Trip! For 60 years Hellgate Jetboat Excursions has earned a reputation of safety, professionalism, and customer service, which is centric to its values. Mr. Hamlyn’s passion to share the beauty of the Rogue River has provided over a million people the opportunity to visit and enjoy this special area.

The jetboats also provide a safe and comfortable ride for people who normally could not enjoy this natural resource and wildlife due to physical or other limitations. Guests ride in the custom Jetboats, built by Katanacraft. Visitors enjoy breathtaking views and a unique river experience that showcases the natural beauty of the Sacramento River. As part of our mission, Sacramento Jetboat Excursions prides itself on its commitment to the environment by not only operating responsibly, but actively working to enhance the scenic beauty through river clean-ups, and protect the environment by continually setting new industry standards. As a second-generation family business, Sacramento Jetboat Excursions will proudly continue the legacy of being the safe and fun way to enjoy the river for families from all over the world and create memories that last a lifetime.
