About us

We love Barbados

Shasa, meaning ‘Precious Waters’, is a stunning 30 foot catamaran who can comfortably carry up to 12 guests. She is owned and captained by Jason O’Neal, who has over fifteen years of sailing experience.

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.

snorkel-cruises

Snorkel cruise

3 hours

Explore life beneath the waves as you get a chance to snorkel and swim with the beautiful sea turtles in their natural habitat. Visiting the shipwreck or coral reef, you will also have the opportunity to swim with many varieties of tropical fish.

A range of complimentary drinks will be served throughout your cruise. We recommend a start time of 10am.

lunch-cruises

Lunch cruise

5 hours

More leisurely than our snorkel cruise, you will have even longer to enjoy the glorious marine life. We also take you on to a serene bay where you can enjoy a further swim before a delicious buffet style lunch of many local favourites is served on board.

A range of complimentary drinks will be served throughout your day. This cruise runs from 10am to 3pm.

sunset-cruise

Sunset cruise

3 hours

This cruise is for the more romantic at heart! After stopping to swim with the turtles, sit back and enjoy the view as we sail along the beautiful west coast of Barbados.

Prosecco will be served as you watch the sunset from the tranquillity of a serene bay. This cruise runs from 3pm to 6pm.

privat-charter

Private charters

Flexible hours

Jason, who rightly is very proud of his boat, supplies the best of trips by ensuring he arrives at the sites, turtles and reef, before the larger boats arrive and send their many guests into the water.
We had a wonderful day being picked up off the beach, an experience in itself, trip out to the reef chatting to the guests on board, of which there were 4, learning about the sea life and the geography of the island.
Arriving first gives us the chance to see the turtles, and in our case a stingray as well, without many others in the water around us. Having seen the turtles we left to be the first at the reef further up the west coast which was teaming with fish of all colours and sizes.
We sailed back to the beach agreeing that being first was a huge advantage allow us to have more time with the amazing creatures. Very many thanks Jason, we will be back!!

Captain Jason made us feel totally at home, took us swimming with turtles and on to an amazing area for snorkelling with an abundance of wonderful fish. Stopped off to pick up a lovely lunch which was served whilst anchored off a delightful cove - rum punch, rum and coke and beers aplenty - thank you Jason, we all had a wonderful time. We were even picked up and delivered back to our villa, thank you, just a prefect day

Jason and Alex are wonderful hosts and I had an awesome time!. I took the 3 hour cruise and the catamaran was small so the trip was much more intimate, a one on one experience. I can't begin to express how much I enjoyed my time both on the boat and in the water! Jason got us to the turtle site before it got crowded with larger, more crowded boats. I WILL be back and this time I'll take the 5 hour tour with lunch. Thanks Alex and Jason!!!

I'm so thrilled that we chose Shasa Cruises for our trip as we had a fabulous time. Alex and Jason we're really friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. We had the best time, snorkelling with the turtles (and rays) and on the reef afterwards. Our 13 year old daughter asked us if she could go back again the next day ' they were great, it's been my best day yet' she said. I liked that we were a small group and felt really at home from the beginning to the end of the trip - highly recommended.

As other reviewers have commented, going out on Shasa is the best way to get out to see the turtles before the other boats arrive! It was really nice to snorkel as part of a small group (8 persons), and we had a good amount of time at both snorkelling stops - I never felt rushed and certainly never felt bored.

Jason and Alex were delightful hosts. Jason took loads of great photos, including some of our young daughter underwater with turtles. We really appreciated that he shared all of these with us right after the boat tour. Jason and Alex responded promptly to email queries, and emailed us detailed driving instructions in Barbados.

There are lots of operators doing turtle-snorkelling tours, but Shasa is very highly recommended based on our experience.

My husband and I enjoyed swimming with the turtles and sting ray. Sailing was awesome as well. Alex was the best part though...she was funny and engaging and made us feel very welcome! Very lovely meeting both her and Jason.

I booked with Shasa tours in Barbados after viewing other great reviews. My husband and I were looking for a small group to snorkel and swim with the turtles in Barbados and we were not disappointed. Alex and Jason are great hosts and provided us with a very enjoyable trip.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Jason and Alex for making our trip out to see the turtles and the fish such an amazing one. Jason knew exactly where to go to find the turtles and did so way before the other boats appeared. Both Jason and Alex were wonderful company and made sure we were all having a good time and explained everything we needed to know. They were both very attentive to our children aged 5 and 8 who also loved the day and swimming with the turtles and fish. There was also plenty of drinks on board and some lovely banana bread too. Thank you so much and we will definitely be back on board next year. Thanks again. Jo, Paul, Ben and Amy

Due to our short stay with a cruise-boat in Barbados, we only did the 3 hrs trip for swimming with Turtles and snorkling. Jason & Alex are doing a great Job with a small catamaran.. it felt like a trip with the Family. Thanks both - very well done.. and very much enjoyed
