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.

“Unique Experience”

An amazing experience from start to end! A three hour trip on this little yet comfortable Catamaran, along the westside of Barbados, where one could enjoy the breeze which the winds offer! Though the experience should necessarily be the turtle watching and the dive with the bundles of fish, I admit that the most relaxing part was actually on the boat! It is not my first time on the island, and have already experienced both dives with the turtles (well turtle) and the tropical fish, however never experienced such an organised trip, on this beauty. If you are looking for an intimate atmosphere, this boat is for you. Oh yes, 5 rum punch on the house (they could have probably given me more if I asked for more) and a lovely banana cake.. yummy yummy!!!
Put a lot of sunblock .. the sun is a killer!

“Absolutely wonderful!”

We did the 3 hour trip, stopping in two locations for snorkeling. Right from the start, Jason and Alex were super friendly and easy to visit with, answering all our questions and making us feel at ease. We were lucky enough to be the only four passengers on the boat, so it wasn't at all crowded or busy. Unfortunately the turtles weren't cooperating that day, but we did see lots of different fish and sea creatures at our second stop. Alex came in with us and was very helpful in pointing out the different kinds of fish! We were served drinks and delicious banana bread as well! If you're looking for a catamaran cruise that's not a crowded, noisy party boat, then definitely book a trip with Shasa!

“Lovely trip”

This was our second trip with Jason And Alex on the Shasa Catamaran, and it was as lovely as we remembered it last year. We went on the snorkel cruise with lasts 3 hours. We were picked up and dropped off at the beach at the Colony Club. Jason obviously knows the sea very well and we got to swim with the turtles. Jason takes some fantastic underwater pictures of them which Alex emails to you after the trip. We also go to snorkel with tropical fish on the coral reef.
They also do a 5 hour lunch trip and a sunset trip which would be good to try next time.
Thank you Jason and Alex for a wonderful trip.

“5 hour experience ”

From the point where Jason and Alex collected us for our 5 hours catamaran experience we were treated like friends.
First stop was to snorkel to see the turtles.
We sailed further along the coast, had time to drink & enjoy the views.
Lunch was lovely with lots to choose from & enjoy.
A lovely relaxing day.

“Chris, Judith and Sarah”

Well organised, very pleasant trip with the experienced Jason and Alex. Enjoyed time in the water with the turtles and also snorkeling. Also enjoyed excellent lunch. Best to go for the 5 hour lunch cruise. Will do it again.

“A beautiful morning sailing on Shasa in sunny Barbados!”

We were recommended to join Alex and Jason on Shasa and enjoyed a truly lovely experience......all the reviews accurately reflect the warmth of their hospitality. If you want an intimate Bajan sailing experience (only 8 guests on board) coupled with an amazing swim with Myrtle and Lulu (the turtles) then choose Shasa.

“Awesome Catamaran Cruise!!!”

We had an amazing time on this catamaran cruise. We went to a spot where the two turtles came to swim with us. We had an amazing lunch. I had never had marlin before but it was wonderful as was the macaroni and cheese Barbados style. Food was wonderful, drinks never stopped flowing. We went to another spot to snorkel a reef and then stopped at a beautiful beach. Wonderful day, can't recommend them enough.

“Not an excursion but a day spent with friends!”

This was our fifth trip out with Jason and Alex and has consistently been the highlight of our trip each year we've visited the island. They truly love sailing and they share that love the minute you step foot onto the boat (along with a delicious rum punch that Alex generously keeps refilling!) We've been lucky enough to take the 5 hour lunch cruise that includes an absolutely delicious meal provided by their local chef. Swimming with the sea turtles only adds to the perfect setting that they and the incredible turquoise waters provide. If you can do only one excursion on your visit to Barbados we would have to say this is it. You leave the cruise not only having the time of your life but also have gained two new friends along the way. Cheers Alex and Jason for consistently providing not only a perfect day for our family but for always sharing your genuine love for what you do!
