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!”

  • California Salmon Rafting Safari

    "Kudos to Team Momentum. Masters of whitewater, cuisine and logistics. We had a terrific time and look forward to future trips."

    "Fellas, Ironically, after rushing off the river and to the airport, my monday evening flight was cancelled. That said, after staring down the haystack of The White House at 2650 cfs I’m fully satisfied to have tackled some class V and made it home without being thrown from the boat. And since Eric nearly fell out of the boat twice, it’s probably for the best... I didn’t want to save him a 3rd time. He just head-butted the water one too many times. As you say... you can’t control the river, but you can control the food. I have to tell you again what a great job you guys did with the meals. In Los Angeles, I get plenty of noteworthy meals at the finest five star restaurants. The produce and local fare, and the taste and quality of everything you served was fantastic. You were accommodating to special requests, and had plenty of options (and quantity) for all. I’m very impressed and would highly recommend the trip to anyone. It’s still a shame we couldn’t hit the Cal-Salmon but hopefully the next time cooperates. And after the great time we all had, it’s very likely there will be a next time with you guys. Thanks again for guiding us through your beautiful northern Cali locale, and please... Everyone... Practice your bocce ball skills before we show up again. Z "

    "This was my second trip with Momentum, and my first multi-day trip. Despite weather that was less than cooperative, this was the best rafting trip I have done so far, and I have done a fair number of rivers in several different countries! All the guides were great, and I still remember all the names, even though I have a terrible memory for names! Pete laid on a wine tasting that had not been advertised, and I know everyone had a wonderful time! My raft's guide, Anthony, was outstanding. Alan was very welcoming when I arrived at camp later than expected the first day. Mike, Simon and Rebecca were great, and Reynaldo did a fine job. The food was fantastic and well-appreciated by all. We finished the second day's run a little early, so Pete led a few of us on a 6-mile hike through a beautiful canyon. All in all, this was one fine trip, and I would certainly use this company again -- I'm hoping I can do the Chile trip one of these years!"

    "Hey pete we just wanted to write you and thank you for a great trip. We understand you work hard owning your own business and we really appreciated it. We had a great time and loved sharing that with Masanori he also had a great time. Your guides are all great guys and hope to hang out with them again. Thank you again and let me know if you ever need help with any of your trips I would love to help. -Dave "

    "Anthony and Simon (and Fay), Wonderful trip to a stunning river! We appreciated every aspect of the trip -- the river, the guides and staff, THE FOOD AND WINE, the attention to detail, the great conversation and especially the professionalism of everyone involved. Best wishes for the rest of the season and we hope/plan to see you again on a river somewhere. "
  • "Just wanted to let you know that we had an AWESOME time on our "Momentum River Expedition"!!! Eric, Ashleen, and Chad were great guides and really made our experience one that we will NEVER forget. They were wonderful with the kids. Tell them that they will all make great parents one day. The food was unbelievable, better than some "fine" restaurants that I have ate at. Camping will never be the same after this trip."
  • 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..."
  • Illinois River Rafting

    "I just wanted to thank you again for the great Illinois trip a few weeks ago, it was definitely one of the best multi-day trips I have ever been on and, as usual, the attention to detail that you and your guides adhere to is astounding and very much appreciated"
  • Lower Klamath River Rafting

    "Huge thanks to YOU, Orea, and to Jane, for a fabulous trip. It was such a success with the kids, as you know, and you were so adept and friendly in relating to them. This is our last full day in Brookings -- we've been to the Pacific at Harris Beach park, and also on a walk through the redwoods at Jedediah Smith park. Today is overcast and cool, so we're exploring other play options. We're so glad we had the opportunity to raft with you!"
  • Lower Owyhee Kayak Expedition

    "Inflatable Kayak trip on Owyhee River. Aside from the incredible beauty that earns this river the nickname "Grand Canyon of Oregon", with added attractions of hotsprings and petroglyphs, I was super impressed with the guides attention to my food allergies. Every meal had gluten free and dairy free selections. I know it is a pain in the rear to plan special food for remote trips. The food was great at all times. Lots of wildlife. Oh yeah, the whitewater was fun too."
  • Rogue High Adventure Kayaking

    "Thank you, Jane! Ron is totally hooked now! Of course I already was. Unbelievable great trip and such a pleasure spending time with you. We are on our way to Klamath wilderness canoe trail to try out our kayaks. When we get Ron's schedule we will work on setting up that Upper Klamath! Meanwhile, we are going to "keep on paddling!""
  • Rogue High Adventure Kayaking

    "thanks orea! we are already talking about the next trip!! you and your crew were awesome!!"
  • California Salmon Rafting Safari

    "I and six of my friends in our mid 20s did a 4 day trip with Momentum (three days on the Cal Salmon and one day on Clear Creek). I could not speak more highly of this outfitter: guides were friendly and knew what they were doing, food was spot on, and the place was incredible. Highly recommend."
  • Lower Owyhee

    "We had a great time also. We were very impressed with your rafting and cooking skills. We will be doing a trip advisor in the next couple of days- it will be great, of course."
  • 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!"
