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!”

  • Rogue River Rafting

    "If you've never been on a rafting trip, go to MOMENTUM. If you have gone with another company and you thought you had a good time, try MOMENTUM. For those of you who have rafted with them, you already know....No IPADS, no TV, no Phones. It really resets your body and mind..."
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "I know it’s rare, but Momentum is a company that delivers everything they promise. I have been rafting with many outfitters but they set the standard. Great guides, great food, great gear, great times. We had an amazing trip..."

    "Robyn, We had a great trip. It was good family time. I must say I have never had such luxurious camping before in my life. You guys did a great job and the food was fabulous. Thanks so much for everything!"
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "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."
  • Lower Owyhee

    "It was a glorious trip. The scenery was as fantastic as we had anticipated and the weather even cooperated. The tents were easy, the pads cushy, the splash jackets perfect and the food terrific. But the contribution that you guides made to the enjoyment of the trip was immeasurable!"
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "Rachael, I had an incredible time!! I am hooked...I just signed up for Yelp and I will be giving your company the HIGHEST rating. Your entire team is FANTASTIC!!! Hope to see you soon!! Take care MG Michael Gordon "
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Totally Welcome:) We loved it. I just told a friend today that next year it's the Illinois:) We enjoyed your company too and commented what a cool life trail and story you shared with us. Totally + trip, have referred others to Momentum already:) Thanks again. Peace and Corndogs! Kiran "

    "Robyn Thanks, GREAT trip. Adam and Mike were great. "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Hi Momentum, It's Allie, and I'm really exited that you have my email!!!!! First of all I would like to say thank you, because that was the best rafting trip out of all four that I've been on! Next year I was wondering if we could have the same guides again. (If that's possible) I really enjoyed all the fun moments we all had together this year like the play that Hailey, Julia, and I put on for everyone, getting splashed by the jet boat, or the awesome campsite that Chad or Pete would set up for us everyday! Those moments and many more I will never forget. Please try to email me back, and tell Chad not to forget our secret handshake. Lots of Love, Allie Laurenson "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Anthony, We had a great time! You are a fantastic guide. I really appreciate the your emphasis on fun without sacrificing safety. Your expertise made the day. Thomas and I will figure out a way to get back down there for the Klamath trip, probably next year. We'll definitely go with Momentum and ask for you. -Frank "
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "I truly loved the rafting experience on May 18th with my three friends. Never having rafted in swift water before, I was a little concerned but soon got over any feeling of trepidation with Anthony’s guidance and steady hand. Ten minutes on the river and my thought was that is going to be really FUN. Even though it was a little chilly, the over all experience was fantastic. Anthony and Tyler - you were both great to us - very patient while instilling confidence and a sense of fun. Who could have asked for better guys to take four “60 something” gals to the river. Very careful and thoughtful while being fun and funny :-) I really had a great time. My current plan is to get out there and do it again very soon. Thanks again for a great first time rafting experience!"
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "Thank YOU, Pete! It was a fabulous trip, and Orea and Jane were amazing excellent guides (and chefs and photographers). This was a first for the little kids, though they are all experienced campers, and it was a huge success. Lake Michigan and Lake Huron will never be quite the same for them, and I'm sure they'll be eager to go again. My husband and I will be, too. I'd rather have a retirement of active adventures than sitting in a rocking chair!"
  • Lower Owyhee

    "Pete---We can't imagine a more beautiful canyon or four better guides (Mara, Jason, Mike and Paige). We will spread the word. Thanks, Bunny"
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "I would highly recommend this trip to anyone. Such a great adventure in one of the most beautiful river trips I've been on. The momentum team was super laid back, talented and professional. Shared lots of laughs and some great meals on our 3-day river lodge trip in mid-May. Could't have asked for a better time. Would highly recommend Tyler as your river guide and the Momentum team in making the trip extra special."
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "Your company makes it so easy for the “outdoor adventure challenged” to enjoy this spectacular wilderness area and always feel safe and comfortable. I started out with reasonably high expectations, but the experience far surpassed my wildest dream! I would recommend your adventures to anyone who has an interest in experiencing this wonderful wilderness in style and comfort."
  • California Salmon Rafting

    "Hi Pete, I just wanted to touch bases with you and thank you for the incredible Cal Salmon/Scott trip this last weekend. The Salmon at 3000 cfs was a very different river from 3 years ago at a much lower flow, and the Scott at 1000 cfs was very technical and fun as hell! Erik did a great job on the oars as always, and Schuler rapid in particular was long, complex, and very challenging. The food was extraordinary, the camping deluxe, and all the other guests fun to be with. And I even got all my final exams all graded (I finished this at the Weed Motel 6 Monday evening)!! Next up for me is Moss Canyon/Rossasco Ravine on the north Yuba in 2 weeks, then a bunch of stuff in Colorado culminating with Gore Canyon (with AVA) in early August. With regard to the Middle Owyhee next year: Easter in 2011 is April 24, so I will have April 16 (Sa) - April 24 (Su) as my spring break. So hopefully you will run a trip on the MO during that time. If you do, I can guarantee you I will go on it barring unforseen circumstances (it would be best if it would not start right ON the 16th or end right ON the 24th, so I could have at least a day to travel each way). Also, I would like to go on the Chilko-Chilcotin-Fraser trip sometime in the future if you could schedule it to end prior to Aug. 12, but that trip is probably more likely to work for me 2 years from now rather than next year. Thanks again, and I hope for your continued success, and success with all of your future plans for Momentum. I think that it is terriffic that you are always pushing the envelope, trying new things. I hope you don't work too hard though. Take care, Paul Kryder "
  • Illinois River Rafting

    "We had a fabulous time on the Illinois. Thank you for being so knowledgeable, patient and supportive. We also really appreciated the great meals, especially for vegan, lactose intolerant folks."
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "This was beyond the best experience, the guide Vikram was so outstanding very knowledgeable very helpful it was just so much fun!! And Tina was the nicest human I’ve ever met!! I just loved this experience so much. I will return! Todd"
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "I never went whitewater rafting before and now, thanks to you guys, I am hooked and can hardly wait to go again. Trouble is, I wouldn't want to go without you! ...But What an Awakening! I'd forgotten how much I love the water and, specifically, how much fun I have when rocketing through it! Could hardly stop grinning. To top it off, I was surrounded by an environment for which I got a history lesson and a deeper sense of awe and appreciation. Loved my time with you, especially Adam, whose raft I felt lucky to be on. (This guy's a pro...wonderful!) I highly recommend having a day exactly like mine was when we were there with you."
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "I recently had the pleasure of being your guest, along with 15 of my colleagues from the Math Department at SOU, on the upper Klamath River. Many of us were doing white water rafting for the first time. We simply had a wonderful time. Your crew and guides were fantastic! We were fed delicious food, given excellent instructions, and our guides made sure we all had a fun and safe float down an awesome river. Thanks to you all for making our time so special. K. Yates "
