The Paddled Pub on the Rogue River
The Paddled Pub on the Rogue River Trip Summary
It seems to be universally agreed that the perfect summer days include great weather, enjoyed with a cold beer in hand and the sound of a river in the background. Floats on The Paddled Pub, are all about the perfect summer day. Enjoy the Southern Oregon weather while sitting comfortably in the shade, a local microbrew in hand, all while floating down the world-famous Rogue River on our custom built raft.
On this boat, you sit around a bar, while taking in the river scenery as the skilled oarsman rows the raft through the gentile currents of the Rogue. Grab a few friends or book the whole boat. Either way, you are in for a relaxing time on the river.
Space is limited and the Pub fills fast, so book your spot today
The Paddled Pub on the Rogue River Trip Itinerary
Trips run twice daily:
Noon to 3:30 pm
3:45 to 7:30 pm
Meet at Climate City Brewing:
Upon arrival check in with The Paddled Pub staff member in the parking lot. After checking in head into the brewery and purchase your Crowler of local draft beer to enjoy on the float. Remember, beverages are not included with your trip registration fee. All beverages are purchased through Climate City Brewing prior to departing on the trip and are then brought on the trip for your personal consumption. You can purchase up to two 32oz crowlers per person for the trip.
Head to the river:
When everyone has their beverages in hand, you’ll head outside where we have a cooler with ice for your beer. We load in the van for the five-minute drive to our launch point on the Rogue River. At the river, the guide will give a brief orientation on the boat and our river travel before everyone loads up, the tables drop down, the pint cups come out and we start our two-hour float down river through the town of Grants Pass.
This is why you are here. Once floating, our server will get everyone a pint glass for you to fill with your personal beverage out of the cooler. Once your beer is poured and snacks are being served, just sit back, take in the surroundings, enjoy your friends and love where you are. About 45 minutes into the float we stop at a local park to offload for a quick bathroom break. Then back on for another hour of relaxing on the river. We float on this trip from Baker Park to Whitehorse Park.
After about 7-river-miles, a few small rapids, and hopefully a few pints, the group arrives at the takeout for the trip. When everyone has made it off the raft the group will load into the van and return to Climate City Brewing, where we strongly recommend going inside and grab one of Southern Oregon’s best meals.
