Satellite Phone
Cell phones are a “hit or miss” way to get in touch with someone when you are out in the Boundary Waters or Quetico.  You never know if you’ll get a call through.  Use a Satellite Phone and know that you are almost certain to get through.

We rent these SAT phones for your winter or summer journey into the wilderness.  Reserve ahead of time if you decide to that you would like to have one on trail. We supply a protective Pelican case with the phone.
$15 per day

$3 per minute usage fee
