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.

My partner, daughter & I decided to go on the sunset cruise. The crew was Jason (the owner) & Rory (co-pilot). We had a party of 3 & there was another family of 4 on the boat, but there was plenty of room for all. Jason & Rory made us feel very welcome, we were offered rum punch, beer, soft drinks & banana cake. My daughter is 12 & had never snorkelled before so I was a little apprehensive.. But Jason showed her how it was done & off she went & she absolutely loved it.. It was an amazing experience snorkelling with the turtles & Rory took a number of under water pictures which were later emailed to us. We saw a number of large catamarans but they wouldn't have offered the kind of personal service we received. Fabulous!

“THE BEST”

I can't say enough positive things about Jason and Shasa Catamaran Cruises over all. We were in Barbados for the day with a cruise ship, and had contacted Jason in advance to reserve his services. From the get go he gave the fastest response, the most reasonable price, and was just a breeze to work with.
When we arrived, everything went as smoothly as planned (taxi driver was waiting for us at the pre arranged spot in a very clean vehicle, and took us all to the ship). The ship carries a max of 12 guests, and we were a party of 8 so we had the whole boat to ourselves!
Jason's family has been in Barbados for many generations, and he knows the entire island inside and out, giving us great insights as we sailed up the coast to our first of 3 stops for snorkeling. Jason's assistant Rory dove with us everywhere and showed us all of the sites and marine life- he was an asset.
Lunch on board was top notch as well- I would even go as far as to say that it was shockingly good.

DON'T LOOK ANYWHERE ELSE- these guys are the only way to go to in Barbados!

“Amazing experience!!”

Everything about this catamaran experience was fantastic. First off, these guys are very friendly and personable. They genuinely want you to have the best time with your friends and family. They will provide some fantastic refreshments including wine, beer (Hairoun- which was delicious with my experience), soft drinks etc. During the cruise, we learned about the area, the people, the lifestyle, and the history of beach front properties. We went snorkeling with majestic turtles, octopus, fish, sea urchins, and other sea life. Then, we visited a coral reef. For lunch, we made a quick stop to board - in my opinion - the best tasting on board meals I've ever had. Fish, chicken, rice, noodles, etc. were all absolutely delicious. Everyone had to have seconds and thirds. I recommend you bring a waterproof iphone case or a GoPro because there are some stunning photos to be had. This is something you must experience. I will absolutely recommend them to anyone considering a trip to Barbados. Thank you for everything guys!!

“Amazing...again”

We went out for the 3rd time with Jason , on our most recent visit to Barbados. As always we had an amazing time. Rory took some wonderful photos of the turtles for us. If we had the money we would go out more than once a trip! Looking forward to our next trip to Barbados and our next sail on the beautiful catamaran Shasa.

“Wonderful cruise!”

Our family really enjoyed the catamaran trip in Barbados! The crew was super nice and thoughtful, provided all we needed (drinks, snorkels, and yummy banana bread after :), and took us to swim with seat turtles, as well as to a beautiful reef to snorkel. Next time we want to do the sunset cruise, which sounds even more amazing, but was booked out during our stay. If you are interested, book ahead!

"Bespoke turtle cruising"

Forget your large impersonal yachts, Shasa is all about a small group fun experience. Skippered confidently around the reefs by Jason with under and over water entertainment provided by Rory, this is an unforgettable day! From swimming with turtles to reef exploring followed by a fantastic lunch on board, this is a day to remember and offers great value so go ahead and do it! Thank you for a brilliant day out.

“Awesome Experience”

Everything about this cruise was awesome. My group decided to do a private rental of the Shasa Catamaran for my birthday and I swear, this was the highlight of our trip. The crew was awesome, the food was awesome, and the snorkelling was awesome

“Wonderful Time with Shasa”

Jason and Rory provided a wonderful catamaran experience on the "precious water" of Barbados. It was one of our most memorable excursions ever. Their courtesy and professionalism were exceptional. Lunch was fantastic. I highly recommend Shasa.
