Unfortunately, Toolik Field Station currently only owns one boat. This craft is reserved for staff use in case an emergency or rescue situation arises. We hope to soon have a second boat which will be available for researchers to check out. Currently all researcher use boats are owned and managed by MBL. Please check in with them upon arriving in camp if you will need a boat.
Whether using a canoe, motorboat, or inner tube, all boaters staying at Toolik Field Station are required to observe a brief Toolik boating safety presentation and boat orientation. All boaters must do this regardless of what agency they are with or who owns the boat. For a preview of items covered in this orientation, please see our training page and read the Boat Safety Information document.
