The Odyssey “best expedition diving rib in the world” has explored and navigated adventures worldwide on the sea with its former owner, marine biologist Monty Halls. This innovative boat, which is the ultimate in power and reliability is now here in Newquay, Cornwall to provide you with the best marine adventures available on the Cornish coastline.
Your skippers Matt and Pete are both colourful characters; they can spin a yarn about rescue experiences and the local seascape.
With a personality and history in her own right, Odyssey is a Humber Ocean Pro 7.5m RIB (Rigid-hulled Infaltable Boat) that was designed to an impeccably high specification for Marine Biologist, Monty Halls. Used in his TV Adventure ‘Shoals of Agulhas’ expedition to South Africa, it even bears the mark of a brush with a great white shark. Fully loaded and powered by a Suziki DF200AP four-stroke engine, Raymarine HybridTouch GPS & Radar.
As Monty said himself “There really is nothing like this boat anywhere in the UK, and possibly the world. It has been designed from the keel up for adventure and exploration.”
