The beauty of the Rogue River is best enjoyed from a boat. Highways and hiking paths just don't get to all of the stunning views of the river and its canyons and rapids.
Many people enjoy the river from rafts, others prefer motorized accommodations. That's where Hellgate Jetboat Excursions comes in.
The boats have been skimming the river for 59 years now. Current general manager Travis Hamlyn succeeded his father Robert, and knows the story of the company's rise well.
Travis is our guest in this month's edition of The Ground Floor, our look at business successes from around the region.
