Offshore Odysseys is a worldwide adventure business that launched in 1999. In the ensuing seven years we sailed over 45,000 miles across the South Pacific and Asia providing high impact, remote sailing, surfing and kitesurfing charters. In 2004 we hosted Raphael Salles and the F.One kitesurfing team in Fiji, which culminated in a feature length Stance film and provided the inspiration to create The Best Odyssey.
In 2006 we launched The BEST Odyssey, “a World Kiteboarding and Paragliding Expedition,” in partnership with Best Kiteboarding, one of the world’s most recognized kiteboarding brands.
Between 2006-2011 The Best Odyssey:
- Documented over 130 virgin locations
- Sailed 54,000+ miles
- Circumnavigated the Earth
- Rounded the Cape of Good Hope
- Visited fifty countries
- Received coverage in over sixty full-length magazine articles in five languages including features in Forbes, Outside, Islands and National Geographic Adventurer
- Produced 17 short films
We completed our mission as scheduled October 2011. Our beloved vessel Discovery received a major refit in Spain to operate with a much reduced CO2 impact and many major upgrades to help her sail faster, lighter, and in more comfort in anticipation of The Cabrinha Quest, a five year expedition which launched in September of 2012. The Cabrinha Quest, operated in partnership with Cabrinha Kites wraps up in April 2018 after six full years of remote expeditions across the South Pacific and Asia including the Chilean fjords, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Papua New Guinea, the East Coast of Australia, Palau and the Philippines.
