About the Crew

Captain Dylan and Chef Gi have an enthusiasm and passion for life on the water. With their easy going charm and love of hospitality, your time aboard will be a trip of a lifetime!


Dylan guides you to perfect bays and secret spots, pairing your expectations and his knowledge to make exploring the Islands all the more enjoyable. Nothing is too much for any of his guests, whether sun tanning on the flybridge with a cocktail in hand, or getting you involved in sailing Odyssea. Having left his home of South Africa at age 6, Dylan grew up sailing the Indian and Atlantic Oceans with his family, totaling 20,000 nautical miles over six years, . Fully qualified and commercially endorsed as a MCA/RYA Yacht Master Offshore 200GT, he is also a certified PADI Dive Master.

Gi grew up in Mozambique, a country on the east coast of Africa famous for its tropical beaches, fresh seafood and Portuguese influences. At 16 years old she began leading guests on private safari tours where she specialized in identifying birds and expanded on her knowledge and love of animals. Later on she would discover her interest in local and international cooking, learning from seasoned chefs operating within the Safari. In 2017, she made the decision to advance her skills by completing the Capital Culinary School Diploma in Professional Cookery, affording her the opportunity to return to Mozambique to delight guests with her refined culinary skills. Gi now looks forward to welcoming you aboard Odyssea and creating delicious meals for you and your friends and family. 


Relax with family and friends
 
Dylan and Gi enjoy having families and children on board and aim to maximize the fun and adventure in each charter, while providing a relaxed atmosphere for you to unwind. They great at creating a vibe and throwing a party, perfect for couples or those looking to visit in island style! They believe that attention to detail and personal touches make all the difference! This is part of what sets them up as a top crew in the Islands.
 
They both look forward to making this vacation everything you hope for.

Bahamas Modifies Covid Protocols For Vaccinated Travellers

The Bahamas Announces Updated Travel and Entry Protocols
 

New Rules in Effect for Vaccinated Travelers
April 23, 2021
 
The Government of The Bahamas announced updated public health measures and entry protocols for fully vaccinated travellers, stating: 
 
Effective May 1, 2021, international visitors travelling to The Bahamas from other countries who are fully vaccinated and have passed the two-week immunity period will be exempt from testing requirements for entry and inter-island travel.
 
 
Requirements For Vaccinated Travellers
 
Vaccinated travellers will still need to apply for the Bahamas Travel Health Visa and will be required to upload proof of vaccination (such a government issued vaccine record card) and ensure the name and date of vaccination(s) are clearly stated. They will not need to provide a negative COVID-19 PCR test prior to entry or submit to rapid testing mandates during their stay.
 
 
Requirements For All Travellers
 
All travellers will be required to apply for the Bahamas Travel Health Visa and complete the daily health questionnaire. All residents and visitors must adhere to health and safety protocols on-island such as mask wearing, social distancing and frequent hand washing among others. Health and safety remain their highest priority and we all must continue to be vigilant.
 

Please Note - Re-Entry to the US

You will need to get tested no more than 3 days before you travel by air into the United States and show your negative result to the airline before you board your flight. See CDC guidelines HERE.

BVI Modifies Covid Protocols For Vaccinated Travellers

BVI To Introduce New Travel Requirements For Fully Vaccinated Travellers

This is great news for yacht charters. Everyone still needs to have a negative test result before arrival, register with the BVI Gateway portal, and have a test upon arrival to the island. If you are fully vaccinated, once you get your arrival test result you are free of quarantine. Hurray! 


PRESS RELEASE - APRIL 23, 2021
 
Minister for Health and Social Development, the Honourable Carvin Malone, stated that effective May 15, 2021 fully vaccinated persons travelling from overseas would require a PCR test within five (5) days of travel, provide satisfactory evidence of being fully vaccinated, and will be subject to a PCR test upon arrival (day zero). Fully vaccinated persons will be quarantined until a negative test result is received from the BVI Health Services Authority.
 
The Minister said, “In other words, if the test administered on arrival returns a negative result, the fully vaccinated traveller will be immediately released from quarantine unless they have been in close contact with a positive case.”
 
Minister Malone explained that a person is deemed to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 two weeks after they have received both doses of an approved two-dose vaccine, such as AstraZeneca, Pfizer, or Moderna or one shot of a single-dose vaccine such as Johnson & Johnson.
 
Read the full press release HERE.
 


 
Now that you are vaccinated, perhaps you'd like to go sailing. See our previous post Sail the BVIs This Spring / Summer
 
Remember, it's not too early to book for the holidays.

Looking forward to your inquiry !

With an abundance of both inside and outside space, guests have the freedom to lounge and dine in a variety of areas such as the salon with satellite TV, the spacious aft cockpit and the large flybridge giving a 360-degree view from the top.

Their hydraulic dinghy platform does double duty at anchor. It can be lowered down to water level to become an area to sit and hang out, dipping your toes and having easy access to the clear, blue Caribbean water.

Vince and Linda Stracener have a passion for being on the water and a commitment to excellence. The beauty of the ocean will be shared through their stories and lived through experience. Their attention to detail will ensure a spectacular vacation.

We've known Vince & Linda for 25 years (where'd the time go?). You may remember them from their previous charter yacht, Drumbeat. We have had lots of charters with them over the years with many repeats. They are well liked and respected in the charter community.
 
 
AMENITIES
 
Ultra is well-equipped for active guests with waterskis, tube, wakeboard, 2 one-person kayaks, 2 standup paddleboards (SUPs), snorkel gear, floating mats, beach games, and fishing equipment. And, if you just want to relax and chill out, you can do that too.

Other amenities include their 14-foot dinghy with 60HP motor, satellite TV, plenty of movies and a variety of music for your entertainment, along with onboard wifi. There is a surround sound system in the main salon, aft cockpit, and flybridge.
