Rick takes us to the Arctic Ocean north of Tuktoyaktuk, Northwest Territories. “This is 30 miles north of Tuk. You can see the offshore drill rig and a supply ship that houses part of the crew and helps with some crew changes for the kulluk (drill rig). My job is to keep the ships and rig full of fuel – Fun at sea when in rough weather!”
DID YOU KNOW? Tuktoyaktuk is on Kugmallit Bay, near the Mackenzie River Delta. Tuktoyaktuk is the anglicized form of the native Inuvialuit place-name, meaning “resembling a caribou.” According to legend, a woman looked on as some caribou waded into the water and turned into stone/became petrified. Today, reefs resembling these petrified caribou are said to be visible at low tide along the shore of the town.
