"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."

  • "Pete, I appreciate your attention to details and sharing your passion with us. Thank you for your advice to take the Upper Klamath. If I go Class 5 then Cal Salmon may be the one. Next trip we take will be with my wife. I hope your business does well and I will recommend your company to anyone interested in great rafting trips. Paige was a pleasure to meet. Regards, Bob Thad "
  • "Hi Alan, We had a great time as well---we're still talking about it!! We are thinking about a guided lodge trip on the lower Rogue sometime in August, and we will definitely call Momentum. We would love it if we were lucky enough to get you as our guide again!! You really made our trip on the Klamath very comforting; we were all very impressed with your river knowledge and rowing skills. Have a great summer, and have fun on your river trips! :) Brenda "
  • "It was a great trip. Food was excellent. Guides worked extremely hard in great spirits; the business has good equipment; the Aussie did a thorough job of training and laying out expectations before embarking and Alex, our personal guide was a veritable encyclopedia of flora, fauna and area history - plus a really weird sense of humor (just kidding). And last but not least, this trip probably has the biggest and most concentrated sets of waves in summertime Oregon rafting."
  • "Dear Pete, You can refer ANYONE to me ANYTIME and I will be happy to "represent" how absolutely incredible the trip down the Upper K is. Besides the remote and spectacular location and fantastic whitewater, to have the good fortune to enjoy you and Derek on my Birthday trip was beyond compare! We've come to appreciate your usual attention to EVERY TINY detail but for this trip, you were over the top! Among "BEST Birthdays" EVER, you shared so generously of your time, talent while keeping us IN the boat, never even needing to call a left or right turn you are so skilled! But the safety overall and the obvious caring you take to assure each guest has that "once in a lifetime to remember" experience is what sets Momentum over the top. Our sincere and muchly felt gratitude to you and Derek and that we will be back next year for our next whitewater adventure. You are a treasure Pete, your business and associates reek of what's important to you, how lucky for us! Lisa and the "WWSS girls""
  • "Hi Pete, we had a really great time, your knowledge of nature and the local landscape made the trip interesting and the river was so exciting! Gil and I will always remember your interest in the people you guide and have already told our friends about the fantastic time we had and the terrific guide you are!"
  • "I was one of the 11+ people on the Austin Adventure 2008 and had a wonderful time. The guides were so kind, friendly, experienced and also great cooks, that I let any anxiety go right away. The equipment saved us from freezing on the second day of the trip, so thank you for that too! And we adored Millhouse! Hope to see you again next year! Lyra and Peter Josefsson"
  • "Just wanted to send our kudos and thanks to Alex, Rachel, and the folks at Momentum River Expeditions for an outstanding trip down the Klamath yesterday. Our guides were personable, proficient, and enthusiastic about their jobs. We knew we were in safe hands and loved being part of the crew. A wild ride in the rapids,quiet interludes and peeks at wildlife (even some pelicans!) delicious and healthy food, and entertaining stories - what more could you ask from a day on the beautiful Klamath?! We will definitely join you again."
  • "Just like this email, you find a way to make the extra effort..not just to sell the next trip either. You beat me to the email where I wanted to tell you personally "thank you" for being so generous and giving of your time and talent..know you have choices but you made the trip so special, so memorable..one of the best birthdays EVER, never to be forgotten and there you were, right smack dab in the middle of it. Today with Alan and Anthony, just as great (but for too short a time)..gals loved it, understand why we rave so about you guys and just generally how really special a person you are. Hope the rest of the season is a blast in a safe way, without incident other than the satisfaction people feel from having spent time with Momentum's super great folks..you lead the way Pete..in ways that are small but completely noticed! "
  • "Wow! Out rafting adventure down the Upper K was the most fun I've ever had! Our guide Erik was great; really knowledgeable not only about rafting but local history, the environment, and wildlife. And the food was great!! Thank you so much for such a great day. I can't wait to try the No.Cal. trip next year!!"
  • "Pete and Rachel, YOU ROCK as the river rocked, swirled flowed and gave us the greatest joy and laughter all the way down the Upper Klamath. I decided to go with Momentum having never heard of them so really it was on a whim and truthfully now that I have rafted with Pete I feel there is no where else to go. I felt safe because he was so very present with us and taught us the details of safety and truthfully we needed it because WOW the upper Klamath is a wild one with the greatest rapid runs and whitewater I have yet experienced before. I have rafted in many places but this was truly the best! I know, I know Pete.. Chile is next! Oh and let me not forget the great "Organic" food that Pete and Rachel supplied and prepared for us. Momentum is one of a kind that I highly recommend for your rafting pleasures!"
  • "We had a wonderful two-day trip on the Upper Klamath; you have a tremendous staff in Alex, Rachel, and Derrick! They were wonderful; what a great team! Alex guided our raft and we appreciated his sharing the local history of the region. The girls, two 16 year olds, enjoyed the Captain Jack story and were even recalling points of the Sat evening discussion revolving around the rivers, dams, fishing industry, Indian rights etc. We all decided that we would have liked for Alex to be our 6th grade teacher. We appreciate his teaching passion; don't stop. Alex will be talked about in future camps as "an influential teacher" (this is a good thing). We also enjoyed Rachel's company, her world-wide travel experiences are tremendous and she's great fun. What can we say about Derrick, the back-bone of the trip. We were never hungry, my goodness the snacks and meals were fantastic. Also, a very interesting and charming person. And a wonderful van driver! We greatly appreciated the maturity of your staff; they were professional, they were fun, they were engaging and interesting. We had a fantastic two days on the river. We have and will continue to recommend your company and staff to family and friends considering an "adrenaline" filled vacation. Thank you so much. Hope to booking another trip with you in the near future. -Amy "
  • "Yo Anthony! We couldn't have asked for a better guide. You were so professional and personable that the 3 ladies on the raft who had pre-raft jitters (read - terrified) want to go again! Excellent trip and time well spent! "
  • "It was the highlight of our weekend. We would definitely do the trip again and will send word to friends. Thanks for a great day. "
  • "Great trip and company, I'd highly recommend Momentum! From reservation to take out, it could not have gone better. Our guide, Erik, was extremely knowledgeable and competent on the river. I took my 13 year old daughter and she loved the trip. In addition, Momentum does a great job with the food as well! "
  • "Momentum Rafting doesn't do themselves justice. We were extremely pleasantly surprised with the great food, the small groups, the knowledge shared, and the amazing river!! SO much less commercial than our last trip and so much more time on the river. And all at a really great price given all the extras."
  • "Pete: I wanted to thank your company and most importantly your guide, Anthony for a rollicking good time last weekend. My older son, Marty Young scheduled floats on both the upper and lower Klamath rivers, 6/21 and 22. It was in celebration of my 60th birthday. I am doing many different things to celebrate this event and the trips on the river were certainly a highlight. I am still high from the adventure. Kudos to Anthony for his navigational abilities and more importantly his leadership. He has a steady, assured manner that is both supportive, humorous and knowledgeable. I especially like the way that he handled my initial fear when scouting one of the rapids on the lower Klamath. He got me through with confidence and was certainly right in telling me that I “would regret it” if I didn’t take the waves. Following closely behind like a duckling, made it easy. Thanks again. I hope to “float’ with your company in years to come. "
  • "I should be thanking you. I had a great time on the river, it's always good to get out on a river and soak up a few rays. I should also be thanking you for putting up with all of my generic and I'm sure rather annoying questions, I learned a great deal. I can truly say that you (Jon E, Big D, and Adam) and MRE are best in class when it comes experience, personality, and true passion for what you all do. MRE is first on my list...without fail. Thanks again for an awesome time. Cheers, ACS "
  • "Thanks for the great trip! I will definitely recommend your guide services and Momentum River Expeditions. We’ll be up next summer with the girlfriends and likely more people and will look you up then. Good luck with the new family and house hunting!"
  • "We just wanted to thank you and your staff for a wonderful trip. This was our first rafting experience and we are definitely hooked. We will be back next year. Everyone was great, especially our guide, Alan. He was a pleasure to talk with and his knowledge of the area and confidence on the river made us feel very safe. Everything was professional and well organized and the food was great. Also, thank you to everyone for the anniversary cupcakes. It was the perfect ending to a perfect day. You all helped make our anniversary celebration a very special one and one we will never forget"
