Matson Kauai

The Matson Kauai is a 26,000 ton container ship built in 1980. It used to run regularly between Honolulu and Seattle, but due to a decline in shipping demand, it has been idle in Seattle since October 2008. Here it sits at Terminal 25.

Two years ago, the Kauai ran into a large swell off Cape Flattery and was disabled. It was rescued by the Gladiator, an Invader-class tug that is now stationed year-round in Neah Bay for such incidents.
