  • "I was not sure how I would feel about an all day river rafting Class 4 rapids trip having very little experience rafting and being generally risk adverse! However, this was a wonderful experience for me, as well as my husband and 13 and 17 yo children. Our guide, Anthony, inspired absolute confidence and skillfully negotiated the rapids. The trip was beautiful and fun and jumping into the river and swimming at the end of the trip was also a highlight."
  • "As an old river guide, I am very critical of any trip that I take. This was one of the BEST that I have taken. Not only was the river exciting, but our guide, Andy, was one of the best that I have encountered in my rafting experiences. The food was well presented, fresh and extremely tasty. I give this trip a ‘double thumbs up’. I will do this trip again. I urge you to take it for an awesome experience."
  • "It was a lot of fun and you were excellent guides. We all felt safe and relaxed and well cared for. Peter and I agreed it was the best organised river trip we have ever been on and Peter especially has been on a lot. Please do pass our thanks on to Pete and Johnny too. Yes, we would love to come down the Rogue with you next summer. We will be in touch closer to the time!"

  • "We have returned from our week long family trip to the Ashland area and the highlight of our trip was the fantastic river rafting trip we did with you on the Upper Klammath. There could not have been a more perfect experience for each and everyone of us. We're still talking about it and will for a long time. Each of the groups think they had "the best" river guide. Personally, I think Arden (ours) was the best because we were in her boat. She was so much fun, such an expert, and we learned so much about the river. She was obviously extremely experienced and skilled, very safety conscious, and geared our boat to have the most joyful time possible. Loved her laugh!!! I would recommend you guys anytime! You are a first class organization. -Kathy"
  • "Craig was a most awesome guide! He hit the rapids in the sweet spots and created a most exhilarating adventure for our family. Craig was very professional and personable. We were provided with a lovely lunch as well. We will be talking about this trip for years to come. We also have to mention Dave our driver, who provided us with safe travels and entertainment along the way. Momentum is the way to go!!!!"
  • "Hi Erik-We would love to share our comments, we had such a fun time!! It definitely went above and beyond our expectations. You guys are all very professional and down to earth and your passion shows with the quality of service you provide. Like I said before, you have an amazing company!!! Thanks again. ~Becky"
  • "My husband and I took a trip out west. We planned on traveling down the coast of Oregon. We heard about Momentum Whitewater Rafting online and decided to give it a try. After talking to a customer rep. we decided to sign up for an entire days trip. It was awesome and we were so glad we did! My husband an I are both in are late 60's and had never done this before! Tyler was so knowledgeable and instructed us on how to handle ourselves as well as the raft. I was a bit nervous, but once we got going thoroughly enjoyed the trip! Tyler informed us about the river and the habitat of the fish and animals there. He even had a wonderful picnic lunch for all of us to enjoy on the beach around midday. I was very impressed with the care for the environment. Everything we brought in, we took out. It was a great trip and one we wouldn't hesitate to do again. Nice part also was the company picks you right up at your hotel and drops you back there at the end of the day. No worries about finding where to go! Thanks Tyler for a super trip! -Gayle "
  • "Myself and two friends had the pleasure of rafting the Upper Klamath River for a 1 day excursion. We had Sam as our guide, who navigated the large class 4 rapids with great skill. I would highly recommend this trip for any adventure seekers such as myself! Momentum lived up to their name as a premier guide in the Southern Oregon area!"
  • "thanks for your mail and thanks for the great trip. I twas a great first time experience for Petra and has inspired me to go back to paddling again. I'll check your programs for next year - maybe we'll see each other again. "
  • "Trip was great- Alan,Simon and Faye were excellent! Have not been on the river since my college kayaking days but I am now excited to get back out. Will definitely pass along your outfit and recommend! -Mark"
  • "This was the 4th or 5th trip on the Upper Klamath with Momentum, and all have been fantastic. Jane, our guide, was excellent, keeping us safe but at the same time hitting all the big holes and waves to our enjoyment. Everyone in the company was excellent-this is a must do trip if you are ever in the area!!"
  • "Dear Tyler, We had an incredible trip and are already talking about the next river to run. Appreciate all our guidance and laughter down the river. We had such a good time. Thanks again for putting together that little birthday cake for my husband, super thoughtful you and the Momentum team."
  • "Just wanted to say I had an incredible time..... I have told everyone we had the best guide (not to discount the other guys).... and the purple boat was tops..... Thanks for your great guide work to get us into every ripple possible and your stories were welcome.... thanks for the stress relief and we are already talking about a return and filling the boat with other crazy friends and of course we will schedule when Jason is available..... thanks again and keep smiling"
  • "We had a wonderful time on the Upper Klamath River. Anthony guided us expertly through some great white-water, we had a superb breakfast and lunch, and really enjoyed the experience! We will be back for another trip with Momentum!"
  • "We had an AMAZING time with you, and are definitely planning on coming back next year; hopefully with a couple of friends and hopefully for a 2-3 day trip :) Alan, you did such a great job -- even Kris was able to get through her anxiety and to feel safe enough to have a blast :) We'll be asking for you to guide us again! Enjoy the rest of the summer :) "
