    Doing some preliminary work on a 2023 trip. Trying to see if any sort of ferry service From Tuk to Prudhoe Bay vise versa. Not seeing anything and really doubt there is but thought i would ask the collective knowledge here.

    Just be happy the ferries are running on the Mackenzie and Peel. A couple of Bicycle guys paid the locals 50.00 each for a ride across when the rest of us were stuck. I passed them two days later still South of Inuvik -- There are ships that probably stop at both spots but if they take passengers is any ones guess.

    I believe there is an active Barge service on the Yukon River and the Mackenzie. That might be kind of fun to catch a ride on.

    That was our plan in 1979 , get on a barge to the Beaufort sea and get a job on an offshore rig :loco. We ended up driving gravel trucks to Yellowknife ,:dunno

    The 70s and some harebrained plans?:rofl:lol3:photog

    Mind you by the early 90s I had already spent 2 summers up in the Beaufort sea and part of another farther east.By then Canmar(?) was supposed to go back exploring and really wanted me (and others) to crew their boats. I declined their offer of employment and glad I did,nothing ever happened!:jack

    Sad to hear that, I was thinking more of the Yukon river. Wouldn't get near either Tuk or Prudhoe Bay but it would be an experience
