“Intrepid kayakers said the Futaleufu could not be rafted. But Eric Hertz, and his partner, the Chilean whitewater expert, Robert Currie, made an expeditionary first raft descent in 1991 and figured out how to safely navigate what today is one of the most intensive stretches of commercially run white-water in the world. They began buying the shoreline, including the river's most desirable campsites and have turned the Fu into an outstanding adventure destination for rafters and kayakers.”

“Eric Hertz and Robert Currie have devoted their lives and their company’s resources to saving some of the world’s last great white-water, wilderness rivers.".
“The absolute mastery of Robert Currie guiding in the back of the raft made every element of the Futaleufu river seem heightened, perfected, colorized, almost virtual."
"Earth River is the premier river runner in the world. Their staff includes the finest guides to be found."
“Earth River is more than a great whitewater outfitter. Their contributions have made a real difference in our efforts to preserve some of the world's most beautiful rivers in Chile and Canada."
"I want to personally thank Earth River for helping us stop the hydro-electric projects on our land preventing the destruction of one of North America's last great wildernesses.
“I’ve rafted with Eric Hertz down some tough rivers—the Futaleufu in Chile, the Colca in Peru. He's one of the best in the business—obsessed with safety."
