Operated by: Odyssey Expeditions
Odyssey is a custom-built 24 metre expedition vessel launched in 2006. Her advanced catamaran design ensures very quiet operation, a spacious interior and excellent stability. Perfect for sneaking into secluded shallow bays, she draws just 1.8 metres and is powered by two advanced Mercedes Benz diesel engines. The engines meet future emission standards and are considerably quieter than many other engine types. Twin engines also offer improved flexibility on long range voyages.
Odyssey accommodates just 20 guests, with six well-equipped Deluxe Double cabins and four compact Twin Cabins. Four spacious, shared toilet and shower facilities are conveniently located mid ship, close to all cabins. The dining area can seat all passengers comfortably, with an al fresco dining also available on deck. Odyssey is equipped with the latest navigational equipment, radios, satellite communications and travels with a comfortable 12 metre excursion tender.
