As the intro on our website states, Kodiak Water Taxi and Transport is a locally owned and operated business providing water taxi and freight transportation and landing craft services in and around Kodiak Island. In addition, we facilitate research projects, eco-tourism, construction projects, logistics services, emergency response, search and rescue, and environmental response services. However, we are so much more than that.
First and foremost, we are locally owned and operated. We grew up here, we live here, we work here and continue to raise our families here. We also work with many other local service providers who can claim the same. If you need to get somewhere via vehicle, boat, airplane or helicopter we have the local connection to get you to where you need to be. Not sure where to start with your project or trip? Looking for recommendations on places to stay? We are here for you. Kodiak is our home and one of the things we appreciate the most about it is the community’s willingness to help each other out. So even if you aren’t using our services, give us a call and we can point you in the right direction.
Tyler, our owner and operator was born and raised in Kodiak. After attending college in Washington State, Tyler spent some time in San Francisco, California while his wife attended dental school at The University of the Pacific. Tyler and Carrie moved back to Kodiak after her completion of dental school and are now raising their three children here. Tyler has been on the water in Kodiak most of his entire life. He has worked on commercial fishing boats, charter boats, lodge operations and now freight logistics and water taxi services.
Kodiak Water Taxi and Transport is proud to have a great team in place that brings decades of experience to the helm of our vessels. Captain Mark Majdic, another Kodiak born and raised local, has been running boats and working in Kodiak his entire life. He has spent time serving our country in the military, running commercial fishing boats in Kodiak and Bristol Bay as well as marine construction and maintenance.
Captain Shaw Patterson has called Kodiak Island his home for the last 25 years after serving an extensive career in the United State Coast Guard holding many vessel training and operation stations.
Tyler started Kodiak Water Taxi and Transport after seeing the need for smaller faster landing craft services for the Kodiak area. Utilizing his lifetime of local knowledge and connections, the business has grown to working hand in hand with many of the surrounding villages, local service providers and government agencies in and around this beautiful island we are lucky enough to call home.
