About us

Shasa, meaning ‘Precious Waters’, is a stunning 30 foot catamaran, owned and captained by Jason O’Neal, who has over twenty years of sailing experience.

Licensed to carry 12 passengers, our aim is to provide our guests with a more intimate and personal service, and therefore numbers are limited to eight people.

Based in Holetown, we offer free transportation to and from the cruise terminal and west coast.

Once on board, you’ll be supplied with masks, snorkels and flotation devices, and for those less confident in the water, snorkelling instruction is available from Captain Jason or a member of the Shasa crew.

A range of complimentary drinks will be served throughout your day. Homemade banana bread is served on our snorkel cruises and white wine is offered with lunch on our 5 hour cruises.

Committed to respecting the environment and the marine life of Barbados we aim to make our tours as eco-friendly as possible.

“Must do in Barbados”

My wife and myself did this excursion on May 12, 2016. We ended up being the only 2 who had booked so we had a private tour with Jason. He provided a pleasant and enjoyable experience for us. He took us to one of the spots where the turtles congregate and fed them fish while we snorkeled. The turtles came close to us and we got to pet them! Jason also took photos of us. My wife said she felt like she was in heaven swimming / snorkeling with the turtles.

We then went to another site where a lot of fish congregate. Jason provided us with crackers to feed the fish and it was awesome to have the fish eating out of our hands!

I truly commend Jason taking us out even though we were the only 2 who booked. Normally you'd expect him to cancel. Major kudos for Jason still taking us out!

Great excursion and one I would definitely do again without hesitation!

“Another Amazing trip!”

A trip on Jason's catamaran, Shasa is an absolute pre requisite of any trip to Barbados!
Jason never fails to deliver......superb snorkelling , great food and 'refreshment' and great company...and a fantastic trip up and down the West Coast.... Always a highlight of our holiday.......see you in September!

“Had the most amazing trip”

We spent quite a while trying to decide on which catamaran to go with & chose Shasa & were really glad we did. Both Jason & Alex are incredibly personable, not only that but their hosting was second to none & we really enjoyed the trip & can't fault any aspect. Very highly recommended.

“Perfect trip, perfect hosts”

We were staying at Mango Bay and this trip was offered complimentary from the hotel....it was so good we got to go on it twice!
Jason and Rory were perfect hosts, friendly, knowledgeable, fun and charming.
We swam with the turtles, drank Rory's rum punch and then had a leisurely sail back to our hotel.
Only disappointment was that we only discovered at the end of our second trip that they had a website and we could have booked a 5 hour trip with these great guys. Book up, you won't be disappointed.

“Sun, sea and a small bit of paradise ”

Jason met us outside Zaccios at 10:00 as scheduled. Don't worry if you arrive early and don't see anyone around. We waited in the shade until the cat arrived.

We clambered on board and found ourselves unexpectedly the only passengers which was a real treat. Jason is a skilled sailor and we made good speed down to Cobblers Bay where we were the first boat on the scene and enjoyed some uninterrupted time with the beautiful green sea turtles until some other boats arrived. The sea was azure and the family of turtles swam under, over and all around us.

We then headed off to the reef for some more snorkelling with shoals of multi coloured fish until it was time to head back.

Jason was a charming guy to chat to and a gracious host, offering plentiful drink and some delicious home-made banana cake. His able side kick, Rory, regaled us with his enthusiastic and amusing patter. They make a good team.

If you are looking for a high quality and intimate snorkelling expedition , we could not recommend this trip more highly.

“Absolutely the BEST for kids, families and smaller groups!!!”

I'll start by saying we have been to Barbados twice a year since 2012. My kids started going at ages two and four, we are very familiar with the island, people, food etc... We have done several of the turtle boat cruises and snorkels in the past and the Shasa Catamaran was by far the BEST we have ever done!! Jason, the owner, and Rory were informative , personable, compassionate, patient and professional!! The first thing that I noticed, as a mother, was their concern for safety of us and especially our kids, they went over the safety procedures and reasons why. The second, was the catamaran itself, was spotless, and there is a private bathroom!! It is clearly well maintained and taken care of, you will know what I mean when you see some of the other boats.... Jason and Rory answered all of our kids questions, and trust me there were a lot..., and the service of soft drinks and adult drinks were plenty-full.... the turtle swim was excellent, we had underwater pictures taken with our girls touching turtles, feeding turtles and swimming along side them. All of these features were included in our trip and pictures can be emailed, let me say this is priceless!!! We then went to the reef swim, our oldest daughter became worried about getting in at the reef, but with much patience and encouraging from Jason and Rory she was able to do it! After that the tour was over and my kids ate an entire banana loaf cake.. (best ever by the way...!!!) With this catamaran you are able to book a three hour tour or more which was the perfect amount of time for kids. It holds minimal amount of people so you will not be overwhelmed by larger groups. This is by far THE BEST CATAMARAN CRUISE you could book!! Well done Jason and Rory, we loved it, we will be back and can't wait to see you again!!
