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 1/2 Day

    "WHAT A SUPER AWESOMW TIME WE HAD ! The gear, the preinstructions, pick up and delivery of ourselves, food and beverages...yikes what more could we ask for ! The guide was skilled knowledgeable and concerned for everyones fun and safety. Yeah Alan !!"
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "In a 4-star rating system, Momentum gets 5++++++! Our guide, Simon, was wonderful, gave us clear instructions (so important for beginners), and provided us with a memorable and exciting experience. Thank you, Momentum, for introducing us to the Rogue and rafting!"
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "We are a family with 5 sons, ages 23-9, and we went on the 3 day lodge to lodge trip. The older boys, all very athletic, have never been so happy with a family trip-kayaking, rafting, swimming, and eating! The younger boys were challenged but safe using the kayaks and rafts. They got to see bears, eagles, turtles, etc. Mom and dad now feel 20 years younger. The guides, Erik, Robin, and Simon, were professional, experienced, and fun. We felt very safe in such capable hands. Excellent trip! Only two drawbacks...you might gain weight with all the good food, and you can't stay forever. "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "This trip exceeded our expectations, which were high, given what we've been told about river trips. Our guides were superb: totally professional, trained, friendly, competent. The food was fresh and tasty, cabins and lodge were comfortable, and the river rafting and kayaking were a thrill of a lifetime. We were in good hands with Momentum and hope to do the trip again. Worth every penny."
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "My teenage girls and I had a wonderful time on the 1/2 day raft trip! Our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable and personable. This was the first time my daughter's have ever done anything like this and they LOVED it! My youngest thinks she wants to be a rafting guide for a living now... We will definitely be back next summer! Thank you "

    "Just returned from my trip on the Cal-Salmon/Scott Rivers. I live in Cincinnati and this is my second year with Momentum in Oregon/California. Need I say more? Momentum delivers everything it promises - awesome, safe rafting; excellent guides; excellent food; and incredibly friendly people. Thanks especially to our guide, Anthony. You were awesome. "

    "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 "

    "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 "

    "Hello lovely people! Jack and I loved our adventure and have already told folks your trips are a must, esp living in Ashland. I made the mistake of looking on Youtube at what can go wrong in Class V rapids, and was quite scared on the drive down, but not once - not even one time did I feel scared in the water. We were having so much fun that I couldn't stop laughing out loud every time we went through a rapid... all thanks to your guides' emphasis on safety, their skill set and knowledge base. I have a tremendous amount of respect for all of you and your experience reading the water. Also, the food was dreamy; healthy, organic energy food made us all happy :) Thank you so much - we will be back! "

    "Pete, I speak for all of us. We had a wonderful trip. We are going to Raft the Kern next month,( a little less of a drive)! Do you have the video of our trip? We are anxious to check it out. You guys did an awesome job and we'd love to raft with you again sometime soon! Let me know about the video or pix?! Thanks Again for making our trip so special. Sue Dell "
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "I sent a long trip report to my extended family. Hope some of them decide to join us next time we go with you guys. We really enjoyed the trip, and I have a sneaky suspicion it will prove to be the highlight of our trip through OR/WA. My 83-year-old mother asked, after reading my report, "Can I go?" And then she supplemented with another email, "I will enjoy the breakfast and lunch parts at least." We appreciated your company and excellent guiding, and especially your alertness when Kelly fell in. Please tell Peter he runs a great operation, and keep it up! We need professionals like you guys to have both the excitement and the safety. -Cathy "

    "Once again - you guys rock!!! Thanks for a terrific time. Just a question, though. Which outfitter of the 2 to go with if we decide to do Cherry Creek? Know there are 2 - which would you guys trust? Any hints as to where to stay or best time to go? Looking at you for this info especially Anthony. Thanks - Anne, Chris and Kris"

    "The Scott ascended into the top 10 rivers that I have had the previledge of experiencing over the last 40 years. I certainly understand why it is one of your favorite's. We believe that you are one of the most talented guides we have worked with, and would look forward to enjoying any river with you. We certainly do want to come back for the Cal Salmon soon. Thank you for a great run. Kim "

    "Hello lovely people! Jack and i loved our adventure and have already told folks your trips are a must, esp living in Ashland. We are going to hope to join you on your 2011 Wild and Scenic Rogue trip. I was quite scared on the drive down, but not once - not even one time did I feel scared in the water. We were having so much fun that I couldn't stop laughing out loud every time we went through a rapid... all thanks to your guides' emphasis on safety, their skill set and knowledge base. I have a tremendous amount of respect for all of you and your experience reading the water. Also, the food was dreamy; healthy, organic energy food made us all happy :) Thank you so much - we will be back! (I even got to see my first bear in the wild on the trip home - this cute as can be little bear cub was clinging with all fours to a tree trunk along the road.) "

    "Thank you guys for a fantastic trip. I couldn't have asked for a better bachelor party and will definitely recommend you guys to anyone looking for a rafting trip out west. Hope to make it back out there myself soon! Take care. John "

    "First time river rafting at age 58 and we did class 4 rapids. We had early teen kids up to age 65 on our trip. With Eric's professionalism and experience and commands regularly blasting in my ear, we did great and I had an absolute blast. Would recommend this guide, company and trip without qualification to anyone."
  • California Salmon Rafting Safari

    "Erik- Thank you for such a great time. We really enjoyed our time with your crew on and off the river. What a great experience, I will definitely be recommending this company to anyone who is interested in this sort of adventure. I would have loved to do Last Chance and Freight Train over and over again, those were the best! Thanks again! Take care. Whitney Turner "
