Jason Decker
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.

Having sailed Tahina from Panama to New Zealand as crew for her original owners, he (and partner Lara) eventually purchased her for use as a platform to share their water sporting passions with fellow ocean adventure enthusiasts.

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.

Tahina Guest Reviews

March 2021

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.

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!
