Odyssea Marine, Inc. was organized in 1998 to meet the marine transportation needs of the oil and gas industry in the Gulf of Mexico. In 1998, Odyssea Marine, Inc. purchased North Bank Towing Corporation and in conjunction with other acquisitions offered tugs and towing vessels. At the time it was acquired, North Bank Towing Corporation had been serving the offshore oil and gas industry for over 25 years. Further, the company had worked vessels not only in Mexico, but on the U.S. East coast, South America, Africa, and maintained a continuous presence in Mexico, working there since the late 1970's as Odyssea does today.
In 2005, Odyssea Marine, Inc. expanded its fleet by purchasing two 3000 HP class tugs, the M/V Caribbean Lady and the M/V Miss Goldie.
In January 2006, Odyssea Marine, Inc. again expanded its marine transportation services offerings with the acquisition of six supply vessels from Lytal Enterprises, Inc. The six vessels range in length from 135’ to 165’. With the addition of the Lytal fleet, Odyssea Marine, Inc. was organized into two operating divisions:
Odyssea Marine, Inc. further expanded the capabilities of its Offshore Supply Vessel Division in September 2006 with the acquisition of AMT Marine Inc. (AMT).
