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.

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

Private charters

We had a wonderful time on the lunch cruise with Alex and Jason. Everything was very professionally run with great customer service. We were able to see a number of turtles and scores of fish. The lunch was a delicious Bajan buffet. Our time at Gibbs Beach was long enough for a leisurely walk and swim. It was a wonderful day and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Thanks Alex and Jason.

This was the most amazing experience. There were three couples in our group, which was so awesome. Snorkeling with the turtles and stingray was beyond belief. Jason and Alex were the best hosts ever. Looking forward to doing this again.

Jason and Alex were great hosts. They made sure that we were able to get to the snorkel site before the cruise ship excursions got there. We were able to have quality time. We got to swim with the turtles and a large stingray. Keeping the size of the guests below 12 allowed for comfortable sailing and a chance to learn about the island from our hosts. We would highly recommend Shasa and would plan to book with them again if we return.

We have been coming to Barbados for over a decade and taken most of the catamaran tours. They all take you (and 30+ others ) to snorkel with another 3-6 large cats full of people out to some combination of Carlisle Bay, Paynes Bay, Sandy Lane, and Holetown. We were pleasantly surprised to be taken up north to Alleyne's and Reed's Bay, where there was only 1 other small group. We saw that Jason and Alex monitored the whereabouts of all guests and (appropriately) admonished my husband and me to stay near the others to ensure we weren't mowed down by inattentive boaters and jet ski riders. Will definitely book a tour with Shasa next year.

A group of 5 of us hired out Shasa privately for a sunset cruise, which was oh so much more! Jason the Skipper and his wife Alex took us for a cruise along the shoreline sightseeing with a great rum punch, after which we were treated to a swim with 3 friendly turtles. A little apprehensive at first and a little rusty at snorkelling within ten minutes my friends and I were mesmerised and having fun. The cruise also included snorkelling at another spot - this time to view the colourful fish on a live reef. We then sailed into the sunset after a perfect afternoon. Thank you guys!

This was hands down the highlight of my vacation, it is a memory I will carry with me for a lifetime!
Alex and Jason were lovely, the boat was beautiful, the beaches were stunning, snorkeling with the sea turtles and fish was awesome and oh super important the food and rum were delicious! As Alex said the rum was the perfect cure to accidentally drinking any sea water ;)
As well, the size of group was intimate and perfect for an excursion like this and I was so happy that we were not on a larger more crowded boat.
Thank you again with all sincerity!

What a great day we had with Shasa Catamaran! Everything went smoothly....pick up....meeting the ship.....return to port. Jason and Alex were excellent hosts and the catamaran was just what we envisaged....with only 7 passengers on board, plentiful drinks, lovely food, great sailing and excellent snorkelling. I would highly recommend this trip and would definitely do it again when (not if!!!) we return. Thanks to Jason and Alex.

I recently had the pleasure of sailing on this catamaran in Barbados. Jason and his wife are excellent hosts and made for a wonderful trip. As it is a smaller boat it was more friendly and relaxed. We left before many other operators and so were able to swim with the turtles in relative quiet before the hordes arrived.

Excellent rum punch and fun atmosphere!
