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!”

    "Hello, Pete! I just wanted to let you know what an amazing weekend we had on the Salmon. I'd also like to thank Anthony, Rachel and Derek for being such amazing hosts to us. We were blown away by the hospitality. Not only are they extremely professional on the river but great people to be around in camp! I could not think of better people to show us such an amazingly good time than those three. Please send our regards and well wishes for the future to all to them! I will definitely be recommending Momentum to anyone I know that will be rafting in California and Oregon. Thanks again! "

  • California Salmon Rafting Safari

    "Thank you so very much for one of the best water experiences I have ever had. As an avid open ocean sailor, I get adrenaline rushes very often while on the water. However, this ranks up there with the best of all of the sailing I have done. Beyond your expertise and concise instruction, your overall customer interaction and service was something I have never experienced before in any environment. This, along with the gourmet culinary skills, has me already considering my next trip with your company. "
  • California Salmon Rafting Safari

    "It was certianly a great time on the river! I thank you for making it all so good, especially for my family. You are all so much fun to be around. I was amazed by the set-up you all provided. A special thanks to Pete for running such a great company, hiring great people and maintaining a laid back attitude. Kudos. Also thank you for being such a competent guide, keeping us afloat isn't easy in all situations, but you did it. The area was full of wild beauty and you knew so many answers to my questions. I definitley respect the knowledge people gain about their area. The trip was the best graduation gift I could ever get. You guys rock! Have a sweet summer. "

I am even considering guide school after law school, so long as Pete isn't sitting there on the shore (as he likes to do) laughing. Once again, thank you! "
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "Thank you for providing the employees of Jacksonville Inn with a wonderful and exciting day on the Upper Klamath River. The skills of the guides made each and every one of us comfortable on the river, and the food was definitely beyond our expectations. All in all, Momentum Expeditions is definitely a first-class operation and we will not hesitate to recommend your service to our guests. -Higgins "

  • California Salmon Rafting Safari

    "What really stood out above all was your commitment to safety. The river was BIG and all the measures you had in place to make us feel safe made the trip that much more fun..."
  • California Salmon Rafting Safari

    "Hi Alan, We thoroughly enjoyed our rafting expedition with you, Alan. You were a superb guide - especially in the area of safety. It was especially nice to hear your stories about what it was like growing up on the river - your summers with your grandparents - how the river and the quiet and solitude of the area drew you back to your roots. When Daniel and I are next in the area we will be sure to book another tour with Momentum and you can rest assured that we will specifically ask for you to be our guide. "
