California Salmon Rafting Safari Testimonials

  • "Awesome trip- the best and most consistent whitewater we have run since the Apurimac in Peru. Couldn't ask for better guides- everyone was really friendly, helpful and very safety-conscious. And the food... and the wine-tasting...YUM!"
  • "thanks man. Good times : )"
  • "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. "
  • "Great spring trip with excellent Momentum staff of Anthony, Simon and Fay. Professional, safe, experienced, attentive and personable. Well run and reliable company that is in this business for the "long paddle". Would recommended it to anyone and will be coming back. "
  • "Hey Pete, I just wanted to thank you, and the Momentum staff, for an amazing trip last weekend. I’m still trying to get over how completely beautiful a river the California Salmon truly is – it definitely deepened my love of whitewater rafting. You know it’s been an incredible trip when you’re already planning your next one on the way home. I think you may have created a monster. Thanks a lot, Pete!! ;-) You were an excellent guide, host, and hiking partner. Your knowledge, patience, passion for what you do, and good sense of humor made my trip an experience I’ll never forget. I’m already looking forward to my next trip with you and Momentum. Thanks again! All the best, -- Heather Liguore"
  • "Dear Alan! You are one of the precious memories of a wonderful weekend with Momentum River Expeditions! Thank you for the special fun you and only you could create with our raft by having us "ride the bull" and . . . will I ever forget the Circle of Trust we six created?!#@? That was the Bestest!!! You are the Bestest! I had such a great time, and I've been "blabbing" away with friends at how an otherwise could-have-been-crappy weekend was instead extraordinary for me! Thank you for being YOU, Alan! Hugs--at LEAST three ;-))))))))) Pam"
  • "Thanks for a great trip! We loved it! Best. Scott and Marc "
  • "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."
