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!”

    "Thanks Mara, We had a blast. I spent any free time I had at work today looking over the spring trips, already planning for those. We'll be sure to request you or Anthony when (not if) we go again. -Jacob and Molly "

  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Alan, We had a wonderful time, too. How nice of you to follow-up. Mike hasn't stopped talking about it and Noelle keeps coming up with ideas on how to go with her future classmates. Personally, I was impressed with your professional "cool reserve" style - it made me feel safe and in good hands, yet adventurous enough to let go and enjoy the excitement. I hope it's OK to ask for you in the future. Stay "cool"! And we'll see you again soon... Janice "
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "We had an awesome time and were impressed with ever thing about our trip down the Rogue. The guides were all extremely knowledgeable, safety-minded, interesting and caring. I cannot think of one reason to look for a different outfitter if we do another trip! "

  • Illinois River Rafting

    "I am really glad you guys got the Illinois permit as that is a perfect fit for your company. I am DEFINITELY going to try to make that trip next year; the Illinois has been on my "must do" list for some time now. And 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. "
  • Middle Owyhee

    "Hi, guys. Again, many thanks for fine trip!! Glad you enjoyed the beer. Hope your season is a good one. -- Ken "
  • Rogue River Trail Running

    "I have to say that before we left, the only thing I knew for sure was that I didn't train enough for the 3 day trail run. I don't camp much and don't really trail run. I'm a pavement/bike path/treadmill kind of runner. I've been hiking for long distances, but it's not really my thing. You have to carry everything. So, when we arrived in Galice, OR I wasn't sure I would like this trip at all. I loved every minute of it! While waiting to leave for the take off point, we had a chance to meet and chat with the group. We a great group with folks coming from each coast and as far away as Australia. The first day's run was refreshing. Not being the fastest runner in the group, I arrived, nonetheless not too far behind the fastest runners, as they staggered the everyone in groups by estimated finish time. Sandwiches were there waiting for us at the edge of the Rogue River along with Gatorade, cookies (always a favorite of mine!), and some good strong cowboy coffee. The camp was already set-up with large two person tents and fantastic air mattresses. All we had to do was choose our location on the shore. After changing into our camp pants (I brought my plaid fuzzy pajama pants), we hung around and chatted with the group, took a sort nap, and skipped rocks in the river. Appetizers came shortly thereafter along with some wine and more good conversation. Dinner was some homemade soup provided by Patagonia. The dinner was very good and filling. We had more than a few vegan and vegetarian folks in the group and Momentum always offered options for every appetizer, dinner, and desert. For desert there was fresh strawberries and melted chocolate and more wine. Man, this is camping...okay, probably NOT camping, but MY kind of camping. All the stuff I would take, but can't carry was there for the enjoyment. The trail guides and trail/cooking crew were fantastic and always willing to play games and talk about their lives and experiences running and paddling through life. They were patient for those who ran slower to enjoy the scenery and understanding when folks needed to raft down the river to the next camp...no judgement at all on the three day event...run as much and as slow or fast as you want...or even just hike down the trail...it's was all good. The second evening turned into jammy pant night as others had also stashed away their favorite fuzzy comfy pants, but were just a little timid to where them outside the tent. But, a little coaxing and beer and wine, it was a jammy fest. GREAT FUN! I think the best part for me was talking with the guides and not carrying a single thing, except maybe a energy bar (Momentum brought along a stash of those, too). Next best, I'd have to say was the Rogue River itself, especially the scenery through the gorge. I had to pretty much walk the last day because my thighs took a pounding on the trail. But, really, who cares when the scenery and camaraderie and experience was so good. Thank you, Momentum, I just may sign up for this one again."

    "We’ve been savoring our time ever since. You were a great team; a wonderful lead—calm while watchful—and our Girls grew by paddles, rows and splashes. Keep caring, cooking and laughing the wonderful way you all do…"
  • California Salmon Rafting

    "Pete, what a great trip, you are a class act, the wine and cheese was fabulous and the food has been the best I've ever experienced on a river trip. The Salmon River was the second most beautiful river I've rafted, next to the Grand Canyon. Also it was very challenging. Will be pretty disappointing to go down the Kern after this trip. Will have to do the Scott next time we are up there. Many thanks again, cannot wait to go up there again! Cheers, Lynne "
  • Illinois River Rafting

    "We had a fabulous time and will recommend Momentum enthusiastically!"

    "I’ve traveled with Pete on 4 trips, 3 of them covering multiple days. In every case, his professionalism shines and in each case, my experiences have been nothing less than brilliant."
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Can't wait to come back again. Adam, you were super great. Loved your laid back attitude yet I always felt like you had such a handle on the boat and all of us. Really cool!! Have fun this summer. "
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "This trip was an introduction to White water rafting for both my pre-teen kids and my 65 year old mother-in-law. I feel like I took them to the Louvre on their first visit to an art museum. If only I had a nickel for every time my 9 year old son turned to me after being swallowed up and spit out by a wall of water and said "that was AWESOME!". A confident guide, great water, a perfect mix of going big and catching our breath, as well as great food in a beautiful setting. We'll be back! That was AWESOME! Dave and Laura Beal Santa Rosa, CA."

  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Allan, your style of guiding and gentle ways of communicating, your vast knowledge of the area, and your inner love for what you do kept us in the present moment, and it was quite lovely! THANK YOU! Eric, what a well versed conversationalist and one with a gift to put people at ease in the first minute. THANKYOU! AND THEN there was the best driver every, MR Derrick,. No one felt seasick at this even keel pace, his love of life shines through and his plethora of the best burger in Ashalnd always helps on the drive form the take out . Each one of your staff are down to earth, talented, gifted, show that they care for our waters, our land, our planet and all the life above us, below us and around us. You should be very proud of these three team members, as they have sold me on my next years trips with momentum! expeditions ! Thank you for awakening the worry of what if's to the present moment. With gratitude and big heart smiles! "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Hey Alan, Thanks for writing! I actually have been meaning to write you guys and tell YOU thanks. Not only did we have a great time, but the entire trip felt astoundingly professional and informative, something I kept thinking over and over as were were preparing side-by-side with the other local tour companies whom appeared to just get in the raft and go; you guys were really awesome for a really great price and I can easily say that you've got me thinking about my next river trip already. Thanks again for all of your expertise, I really learned a lot while also having the time of my life. It had been almost ten years since I last rafted but I'm hooked again and I look forward to seeing you guys again soon! "
