F/V Kiwi Au Kai F/V Kai Moana

What's in a name?

The kiwi is a native New Zealand bird and a nickname for someone who comes from New Zealand. "Au Kai" means navigator in Hawaiian and "Kai" means food in Maori. Our vessel's captain is a "kiwi" from New Zealand who has lived in Alaska for thirty eight  years and navigates the F/V Kiwi Au Kai to bring you food from the sea!

In 2019  we added  an additional  boat  to  provide  a  bit more  comfort  and  room.  “Kai Moana”  is  26’  Raider  powered  with  twin  Honda  150s.  The name you  know  means  food  in  Maori  and  Moana  means  sea.  A  perfect  name  for  our  seafood  provider!  Both  vessels  have  heated  cabins  and a  private  head,  (restroom  for  your  landlubbers).
