A little about ourselves
Kodiak Water Taxi and Transport is a locally owned and operated business providing water taxi services and freight transport in and around Kodiak Island.
The vessel the Tiger Cape is a 33 foot long by 14 foot wide aluminum catamaran landing craft built in Sitka Alaska by Allen Marine in 2007.
The catamaran hull design provides for one of the safest, most comfortable and capable hull designs that enhances the performance of the boat, while maintaining a smooth ride for Kodiak waters. The symmetrical hulls provide directional stability in short swell conditions and following seas, while ensuring softness of ride and reduced wetted area, enhancing comfort and economy. The boat features a wide tunnel with a high ceiling between the hulls. This allows free passage of wind-waves underneath without slamming against the underside of the deck above.
For those of you worried about getting sea sick the Tiger Cape has a 14 foot wide beam that provides for little side roll in a swell helping to keep you from feeling queasy, and it's tall tunnel height and narrow entry point ensure a smooth transition through the chop.
The drop down bow and shallow draft of the catamaran allow for easy loading and unloading of a wide variety of cargo and makes accessing remote locations very easy and safe for walk on, walk off situations. The cabin is outfitted with heat, bathroom and comfortable seating as well as state of the art navigation and communication equipment.
The Tiger Cape is equipped with twin powerful Suzuki outboards that will take you to your destination safely and quietly and ensure that your cargo gets to where it needs to in a timely manner.
