About us

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 twenty years of sailing experience.

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, along with homemade banana bread, and white wine on our lunch cruises.

We are committed to respecting the environment and the marine life of Barbados, and aim to make our tours as eco-friendly as possible.

The Best- Jason is a gracious host and a world class sailor. The food is great. We have used him for family outings for many years and every trip is great.

Our family spent a fantastic and memorable morning with Jason and Alex on their lovely catamaran sailing along the west coast, stopping to snorkel over a reef and swimming with turtles. It was a very personal service (there were no other passengers) and all our family - kids 13, 11, 9 and 6 years - really enjoyed the whole experience. Jason and Alex were great company, very knowledgeable and great hosts. They also took some fantastic underwater photos of us swimming with the turtles, and emailed them to us afterwards, which was the perfect memento of our trip.

This was our 3rd trip with Captain Jason on the Shasa catamaran and it was excellent as always. We really prefer the Shasa due to the terrific service and the smaller group experience. We booked this tour for our cruise stop in Barbados and everything was fantastic from the transportation waiting for us at the pier to sailing the beautiful waters of Barbados. Snorkeling with the sea turtles is simply amazing. Don't hesitate and book with Captain Jason if you have the chance!

Jason and Alex were great and treated us as if we were family! We swam with turtles and in a reef and saw tones of fish. Great people, great boat, great day.

We agree with so much of what all the positive reviews have said! We especially appreciated Jason and Alex's hospitality and gentleness. We want to add a few details others might be interested in knowing: the boat is immaculate and incredibly maintained; there is a bathroom onboard; and the boat picks you up on the beach (you don't have to wade into the water to get to the boat). Finally, we want to express that being guests on this catamaran gives you the opportunity to appreciate when a couple exhibits a strong work ethic and a respectful marriage relationship. It was inspiring to be on the water and around this special couple!! We highly recommend this catamaran!

Jason and Alex were amazing! We came on this trip with another couple and we had a great experience. They were totally accommodating of everything we could have needed. They offered drinks all day, they had amazing banana bread for a snack and the catered lunch they brought in was the best we had all week! Jason and Alex were engaging, interesting, friendly, and fun to spend the day with. We would definitely do this trip again!

This was the perfect excursion and we had a wonderful day with Jason. He is extremely knowledgeable and was very patient with my 17-year-old daughter!! We had two snorkel stops and one lunch/swimming stop. We saw turtles and beautiful fish. The last stop was for lunch which included fish, chicken, rice, pasta, salad, and bread and was delicious and we were able to swim for a while in the beautiful blue waters of Barbados. We had a great time and highly recommend Jason!

This was our second time using Shasa. The first time was with Jason only. This time he had his "first mate" Alex with him. She was a great addition! We took this excursion while on a cruise. We chose Shasa because it is like taking a trip with friends. And, instead of 60-80 people on some huge boat, his catamaran takes no more than 12. Jason got us to the turtle spot before the large boats came with the huge crowds so we were able to get very close and personal with the turtles. We also did some snorkeling and spent a couple hours swimming off the boat on a very nice beach. Jason took photos and emailed them to us free of charge. Lunch was picked up fresh from a shore restaurant and was very good. Alex made rum punch. They both provided good conversation and stories. We expected a great time and they delivered! I highly recommend using them for a great day in Barbados! Last point: this excursion would be good for all snorkel experience levels. The advanced folks will find lots to see and dive for. The inexperienced ones will get some very personal attention from Alex and Jason since there will be no more than 12 on your boat.

An amazing day out with the family, hired the boat for the 4 of us and we had a fab time. Snorkelled with a huge array of fish and swam with around 4 turtles and a huge stingray. Jason the captain even took photos of the turtles while we were swimming with them and uploaded them to drop box. The boat is bigger than it looks, certainly for the 4 of us anyway.

A really great day out.. will return!
