Testimonials

"What just might be the best commercial rafting company in North America. The trips are spectacular beyond description, the guides are the best of the best, the food is incomparable, and the customers are treated like royalty."
  To all our past and present guests - Thank You!  At the end of every year we sift through the emails and the photos from all of you and it never fails to give us goose bumps, it never fails to make us happy (and a little sad), and it never fails to remind us of the power and beauty of our wild places and, even more importantly, of the unique and remarkable people we are lucky enough to spend time with on the river every season. So, with your continued support, wonderful personalities, and adventurous spirits we will continue to keep and attract the best guides anywhere. We will continue to reshape the way river travel is run and to work towards setting the standard in trip quality and environmental responsibility. And we will continue to run rivers and add adventures that are the best in their class and that are off the beaten path. To all past and present guests a huge - "THANK YOU!" For those who have not been on a rafting trip with us below are some highlights and then a rolling list of testimonials as they come in from our guests. You can also check out TripAdvisor.com and Yelp.com for even more. Enjoy!

  • "The guys are still buzzing about the trip, and I think I speak for everyone when I say it was the finest whitewater river that we’ve ever done"
  • "Exceptional guides in a beautiful place – camped at a beautiful and remote spot on the California Salmon River. Our guides had comfortable tents and great home cooked meals for us each day. The guide in our boat had 20 plus years experience guiding around the world and took us down awesome Class 5 rapids with skill and care. She gave us as much excitement as possible while keeping us safe. I could not recommend this outfit more highly."
  • "Just a wonderful company – Anthony, you rock! – Third trip to do the Cal-Salmon and Scott River. Felt like coming home to old friends. Anthony, as always, you make the rest of us geeks feel like we could navigate any river with you. Your commitment to our safety, plus your commitment to this area, the environment, and the people here, especially the natives, along with the rest of your awesome crew, Mike, Orea, and Faye (thank goodness for driving those roads LOL), always make this a special time."
  • "Holy Moly – Re: the Cal Salmon trip – the most amazing thing I’ve ever done in my 30 years and my mom has done in her 66. Intense, wonderful, well-organized, incredible — I still don’t have the words to really describe it. All I can say is that I feel insanely lucky I was able to experience this with some of the greatest people. Orea is the best. Eric, Mike, Faye and Simon are just as fantastic. Do this people. Seriously. Just go."
  • "Just finished 3 days on the Cal-Salmon and Scott rivers with Momentum (May 2016) This was the rafting experience of a lifetime - big water I never thought I would do, pristine scenery, great guides and amazing camp food."

  • "“As someone who has rafted on commercial trips all over the western U.S. for over 15 years now, I can say without hesitation that your company is the FINEST outfit I have rafted with. The Cal Salmon trip was probably the best trip I have ever been on.” "
  • "What a premier company you have got going! I have been rafting with groups for over 20 years and you guys are DELUXE! The little things go along way in demonstrating the class act you provide."
  • "Pete, I speak for all of us. We had a wonderful trip. We are going to Raft the Kern next month,( a little less of a drive)! Do you have the video of our trip? We are anxious to check it out. You guys did an awesome job and we'd love to raft with you again sometime soon! Let me know about the video or pix?! Thanks Again for making our trip so special. Sue Dell "

  • "What really stood out above all was your commitment to safety. The river was BIG and all the measures you had in place to make us feel safe made the trip that much more fun..."
  • "Once again - you guys rock!!! Thanks for a terrific time. Just a question, though. Which outfitter of the 2 to go with if we decide to do Cherry Creek? Know there are 2 - which would you guys trust? Any hints as to where to stay or best time to go? Looking at you for this info especially Anthony. Thanks - Anne, Chris and Kris"
  • "Hi Anthony, thanks for your e-mail. We are back in Germany since yesterday. Yes! The rest of our holiday was great. But the rafting-trip with the momentum-team and you as our guide was the best we did. I told you that I always felt safe during the trip..and that is the absolute truth. So I have to say: Thank you very much!!! Give my regards to your team All of you take care Charlie "
  • "Hi Alan, We thoroughly enjoyed our rafting expedition with you, Alan. You were a superb guide - especially in the area of safety. It was especially nice to hear your stories about what it was like growing up on the river - your summers with your grandparents - how the river and the quiet and solitude of the area drew you back to your roots. When Daniel and I are next in the area we will be sure to book another tour with Momentum and you can rest assured that we will specifically ask for you to be our guide. "
  • "The Scott ascended into the top 10 rivers that I have had the previledge of experiencing over the last 40 years. I certainly understand why it is one of your favorite's. We believe that you are one of the most talented guides we have worked with, and would look forward to enjoying any river with you. We certainly do want to come back for the Cal Salmon soon. Thank you for a great run. Kim "
  • "The Great team of guides who is safety conscious, explains and navigates the rivers expertly, treats all with respect, and prepares wholesome, tasty food."
  • "Hello lovely people! Jack and i loved our adventure and have already told folks your trips are a must, esp living in Ashland. We are going to hope to join you on your 2011 Wild and Scenic Rogue trip. I was quite scared on the drive down, but not once - not even one time did I feel scared in the water. We were having so much fun that I couldn't stop laughing out loud every time we went through a rapid... all thanks to your guides' emphasis on safety, their skill set and knowledge base. I have a tremendous amount of respect for all of you and your experience reading the water. Also, the food was dreamy; healthy, organic energy food made us all happy :) Thank you so much - we will be back! (I even got to see my first bear in the wild on the trip home - this cute as can be little bear cub was clinging with all fours to a tree trunk along the road.) "
  • "Hello, Pete! I just wanted to let you know what an amazing weekend we had on the Salmon. I'd also like to thank Anthony, Rachel and Derek for being such amazing hosts to us. We were blown away by the hospitality. Not only are they extremely professional on the river but great people to be around in camp! I could not think of better people to show us such an amazingly good time than those three. Please send our regards and well wishes for the future to all to them! I will definitely be recommending Momentum to anyone I know that will be rafting in California and Oregon. Thanks again! "
  • "Thank you guys for a fantastic trip. I couldn't have asked for a better bachelor party and will definitely recommend you guys to anyone looking for a rafting trip out west. Hope to make it back out there myself soon! Take care. John "
  • "Just wanted to say thank you for such a wonderful time last weekend! I was so impressed with the professionalism of your guides, as well as the incredible relaxing but enthralling trip. I've never seen such impressible cohesiveness and talent. You truly have an amazing job, and a wonderful cohort to work with. I'm looking at your Chile trip for Feb, so hope to see you there. Thanks again! Anne "
