I think what is nice about Mare's is that is shows a nice way to have a logo, but with symbol variation. Just always keep the logotype the same. One person can have the ship on their business card, while another person can have the whale tale. Look how AT&T use to change out the symbol (not done with the new logo though).

It doesn't sound like Akii does any land safari trips, but it would be fun to see a "land" reference if so. Probably not what Mare intended, but it is nice when it is appropriate.

AKII does not stand for anything, it's a fantasy name.
