Designed specifically for cruising the coastline of British Columbia, Island Odyssey is a 21-metre ketch-rigged yacht, licensed by the Canadian Ministry of Transport as a passenger vessel.

Originally built as a luxurious private yacht in 1984, she underwent major renovation in 2003 to update the cabins and all safety systems. Accommodation on board consists of eight double cabins (mainly with twin upper and lower bunks, some with double bunks) plus three communal heads with hot showers, a large, comfortable lounge with an extensive library. She is equipped with all the safety equipment, electronic navigation aids, and features you would expect from a vessel of her standard.
