Born in the town of Durban, Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa, Jared spent much of his youth living the coastal life. Initially qualified in pattern making and construction skills, he changed his career in 2015 to follow his passion for the sea and a career in the marine industry.
After a year of intensive training Jared achieved his PADI dive instructor at Sodwana Bay, South Africa. Following this he scored his first job in the BVI working at a commercial dive shop in Tortola, learning everything about the island waters, above and below the sea.
In 2018 Jared gained his RYA Yacht Master certificate after six months delivering yachts across the Caribbean chain and training at Ondeck sailing School, Antigua. Now a professional in his field he took on the role of full time Captain in his first gig running a dive catamaran. It was at this time he and Daisy dreamt up the idea of owning and running a daysail Pirate ship named The Anne Bonny.
