What To Explore In Gold Beach - Jot's Resort

Departing from Gold Beach is the only way to get jet boat access to the pristine "Wild Section" of the world famous Rogue River. Jet Boats skim the Rogue's waters 52 miles up into the Wild and Scenic Section going far into the Federally protected areas. Normally, power boats are not allowed in a Federally Designated Wild Section, however Jet Boats were operating from Gold Beach to Agness long before the Federal Wild and Scenic protections were in place.
River, Wild Lands and abundant Wildlife in a safe and exhilarating whitewater trip upriver. These trips are considered a must-do during any Gold Beach visit — at least in the months between May and October.
Jet boats are designed specifically for safely navigating strong currents and shallow riffles, so you can relax as trained pilots treat you to tall tales and river lore, incredible scenery and sightings of black bear, river otters, eagles and the rare mountain lion.
At Jot's Resort, not only can we make your jet boat reservation for you, but the boats will pick you up right outside your room on our docks.

While staying at Jot's Resort, you'll have the opportunity to experience the many recreational opportunities available to you on the beautiful Southern Oregon Coast. It's probably one of the best places in the world to do nothing, like walking along a sandy beach just clearing your head. Or sitting on a gusty bluff, watching clouds go by. Gazing into a tidepool for what seems like hours, till that starfish finally moves on. Maybe casting a line with no thought at all except what's in that calm pool on the other bank. Gold Beach has that kind of effect on you; it's just the best escape. On the other hand, it's also one of the Northwest's choicest bases for launching yourself into about anything you've been meaning to do "someday" — whitewater jet boating, kayaking, windsurfing, wilderness mountain hiking or biking, or maybe just seeing an eagle, otter or bear that's not in a pen. There's magic to that, and something really magical about knowing it's like this here all the time. Here's the thing about Gold Beach: There aren't a lot of people here, and that probably makes the biggest difference. You don't waste precious time in traffic, waiting in lines or dealing with folks who'd rather be someplace else. Its easygoing. So whether you're looking to slow down or speed up, find your getaway here…
