Canyoneers is proud to introduce our Operation Manager John Crowley (pronounced crow-ley—like the bird!) John has been with Canyoneers for 8 years, but has a very extensive river history.
As a 3rd generation Arizonian, he was raised hiking the Grand Canyon and started boating in 1992. He hasn't been away from the river since! He loves to row boats, drive motor boats, and play with old wood boats!
John is married with 2 lovely daughters and has lived in Flagstaff for 22 years. He is a graduate of Northern Arizona University.
His favorite Canyon rapid is Sapphire Rapid — "big, twisty, and scarey!" His favorite hike is Saddle Canyon — "unique because of elevation change, beautiful vegetation and waterfall, and the upper canyon catches a wonderful red hue on the hike down."
