Pat Phillips

Pat has been a Grand Canyon River guide since 1991 (eight of which have been with CanX). Winters have often found him guiding and playing in the Southern Latitudes, however, his love affair with the Canyons and Deserts of the American Southwest shows no sign of waning. Pat recently earned a Masters Degree focused on stream ecology and water resource issues, and continues his life education while enjoying the outdoors, traveling, and guiding.


“Pat was an awesome trip leader.  I know there had to be a lot of on the fly decisions, but everything seemed as if it was all planned far in advance.” - S.A. April 21, 2012 


(Recently, when not in Grand Canyon, Pat's been developing his own wilderness rafting/touring operation in Mongolia. You check it out, and some great videos and photos, at
