The crew of Tahina met racing J/24 sailboats in 2004, and have sailed and cruised together ever since, eventually marrying in 2014. Having sailed their current yacht, Tahina, from Panama to New Zealand as crew for her original owners, Captain Jason and Mate/Chef Lara purchased her in 2018 and have fully refit her to the latest standards for use as a platform to share their passions for sailing, water sports and island life with guests.

Captain Jason holds an RYA Yachtmaster Ocean qualification, earned after years of competing at the highest levels of the J/24 one-design sailing class and in numerous other one-design and handicap-rated sailing events around the world, from Europe to the Americas and New Zealand, coupled with a half-circumnavigation. Jason is a qualified PADI divemaster, avid kiteboarder and sailor, and enjoys a morning paddle board or surfing expedition anytime he can squeeze it in. He is also a master of creating delicious breakfasts at sea.

Having been raised in South Florida by an avid fisherman and all around salty-living fanatic, Lara has been snorkeling, boating and paddling as long as she can remember. She has sailed well over 15,000 nautical miles of her own over the years, and in addition to being the lead culinary artist on board, her focus these days is on the business of helping people plan and experience vacations of a lifetime. She is an expert at whipping up delicious treats to suit our guests’ cravings, loves getting to know all the nooks and crannies of the places we travel, and is an expert at matching our guests’ interests with the perfect itinerary for their trip.

Best trip ever!! Jason and Lara were great to work with pre-trip. Jason made sure everything was epic. We snorkeled, dive, swam with nurse sharks, paddle boarded, saw turtles, pigs, iguanas, everything! He even managed to get us a front-row spot to the sunset nearly every night. 6 / 5 would do again. Thanks Jason and Lara — you have something very special to offer. Thanks for sharing. Heidi and Dave Oregon, USA

What an amazing week. Just the right mix of adventure, discovery and relaxation. So many new experiences. Really who can say that they learned to wake board over a sunken plane wreck? A week of great food and lots of laughs. Truly a week full of memories to last a lifetime. Chad Utah, USA
March 2022
We cannot thank you enough for the amazing time we had aboard Tahina. This was truly a magical week for our family. Thank you for tailoring this trip to keep 4 teenage boys entertained for a week, that is no easy task. You were so patient with them + laughed w/us at some of their teenage humor + behavior. Thank you for listening to our needs + wants + providing us a wonderful experience. The Exumas are absolutely breathtaking + I appreciate you showing us + teaching us about the islands + the seas. There were so many times when I just stopped + was overwhelmed with my God, the creator of this beauty he spoke into existence. This definitely is one of the best weeks we have enjoyed as a family. THANK YOU. Jason & Heather & Teenage crew Tennessee, USA

We had an amazing time on Tahina. She’s so well looked after. Jason was so knowledgeable locally in all respects. I felt we were in good safe hands at all times. We saw some lovely stuff and managed to accommodate everything we wanted to do Lots of memories to go home with. Thank you for taking good care of us. Juliette United Kingdom

Great times with great people! Jason and Lara made this trip one to remember! The snorkeling and exploring was phenomenal. I so enjoyed diving for conch and spending the day learning how to clean and prepare the conch. It was also a lot of fun exploring the various cays with the abandoned buildings, iguanas, and beaches! The food was phenomenal, keeping us on our toes with different recipes every night. It was a wonderful time because of the people and the friends we found on the way. Bravo Jason and Lara!! Can’t wait to come back soon. Madeline Florida, USA

Hands down, best trip of my life. Good times had by all! I appreciated all of the efforts to see wildlife (iguanas, rays, dolphins), the cohesion of the group, and the all-around good vibes on and off the boat! Jason & Lara were the perfect hosts. I feel so fortunate to have sailed on Tahina! She was very good to us. J Aimee France, March 2022

A trip aboard Tahina is nothing short of magical. From the boat, my wife and I got to see The Bahamas as it really is: seemingly endless strings of islands that offer an amazing range of experiences. And Tahina could deliver us to new places before the resort-bound tourists had even climbed into their rental cars. Jason and Lara knew where to go, what to do, and who to see; but they were happy to tailor our trip to our tastes. Want to dive a reef or stroll a beach? Pet a shark or try the conch? Talk a hike or sit in the sand? We did it all, or tried to, confident that Jason, Lara and Tahina would get us there and back swiftly and safely. The icing on the cake was all we learned from Jason and Lara about everything from sail trim to swim fins and plenty in between. My wife and I have sailed with them twice already and are looking forward to next time. Clay Jacksonville, Florida December 2020 and March 2021

What an amazing trip with the Ocean Adventure Cat team. Captain Jason and First Mate Lara were incredibly hospitable, friendly, knowledgeable, and most importantly, fun! We spent our days in some of the most beautiful anchorages in the Exumas, floating on crystal clear water under painted blue skies. Every day was action-packed with snorkeling, diving, fishing, hiking, exploring islands, paddle boarding, and kayaking, just to name a few. On the days that we didn’t feel up to adventures, we had lazy days on secluded beaches, swimming and chilling in the sun on the boat. We had afternoons getting served happy hour drinks on a sand bar island meanwhile meeting other boaters and cruisers. Our evenings were spent at some of the local restaurants sampling some of the amazing Bahamian seafood. I have never seen lobster so huge! Lara & Jason were very knowledgeable about the islands and the boat. They were incredible cooks and we even were able to help out a bit in the galley learning to cook up new recipes for fresh-caught conch from our day out on the water. As a monohull sailor myself it was good to get some different experiences sailing and helping crew the boat, learning the differences between boat types. Tahina was very large and accommodating and never felt too cramped. Plenty of space to spread out both outdoors and below deck. We had such a great time, I’ll definitely be back next season!
