Captain: Jamie Harris
Having grown up landlocked, Jamie found his love of the ocean when he was in his late teens and started surfing. Since then, Jamie has been travelling the world and working his way as a qualified PADI scuba instructor, dive guide and yacht captain since 1997. He has sailed and dived in Thailand, Australia, Turkey and the Caribbean/Bahamas. Jamie is outgoing, diligent and has a wickedly subtle sense of humour.

He has a way with people, that immediately puts one at ease. Creating fabulous sunset cocktails and offering up stories of adventures on the high seas, Jamie will enthral his guests aboard SeaGlass. With almost 20 years above and below the water Jamie has developed a vast knowledge of everything to do with boating, fishing and diving and is happy to share his knowledge.

Chef/Mate: Tavia Pretorius
Tavia grew up in a family that spent a lot of time on the water, fishing, shrimping and living off the sea. As a young girl she went out boating with her Dad and was filleting fish and cleaning shrimp before she hit her teens. It was no wonder that Tavia went on to become a qualified PADI dive instructor and a chef of note. Tavia has a passion for the artistry of food and every meal she prepares is more remarkable than the last. She has been chartering for some years and has catered for up to 30 people on a weekly basis.

To add to her many talents, Tavia is also an accomplished free diver boasting depths of up to 130 feet. One day she hopes to complete and obtain the world championship for her home country of South Africa. Having chartered extensively in the islands, Tavia’s knowledge of the local flora and fauna is vast and she is a mind of information.
