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.

We were looking for a cruise to swim with sea turtles and go snorkelling and it was clear as soon as we boarded Shasa that we had chosen the best. Jason is a competent sailor and has an in depth knowledge of the area. He and his wife Alex were friendly, great fun and very helpful with our children. This is an excellent cruise for families but it would be just as good for adults groups as well.

We were in Barbados on a Disney Cruise and chartered The Shasa with our group of 8. Due to a hurricane our arrival date got move up by 4 days. No fear Jason's Crew met us an the pier and the wonderful day continued as planned. We went to a spot and got into the clear blue water. We quickly were approached by 2 sea turtles. We snorkeled with them for approx. 30 minutes. Then we were off to a reef where there was abundant sea life. We stopped and picked up lunch then off to a calm area where we had a very good lunch. Alex (Jason's wife) kept the cold drinks coming and before we knew it our time was up. Well worth the money and well worth the time.

Went to Barbados on our Honeymoon and booked the trip through a recommendation and we were not disappointed. Jason & his wife were very friendly and couldn't be more accommodating. The experience to swim with turtles was amazing and we wouldn't hesitate to go on this trip again in the future. Thanks Jason & Alex!!

Allow me to preface by saying that we have been on over 20 cruises, the bulk of which were in the Caribbean. The excursion with Jason on Shasa Catamaran was, hands down, the best we have ever taken. Jason kept us ahead of the other cruisers on their ship-arranged excursions. There was never any doubt in our minds that we would get back to the ship with plenty of time to spare. Don't let your cruise line scare you into taking one of their excursions- let Jason take you to see the turtles and the reef and/or shipwreck. My only regret is that we did not book the longer tour that included lunch! Jason was very patient and helpful to some inexperienced snorkelers in our party which made the difference between them staying on the boat and taking the plunge- thanks to Jason for convincing them to go for it. I cannot say enough about Jason's wonderful personality and knowledge of the area. I felt like we left the boat as friends. Give Shasa a try, you won't be disappointed- oh, and he DOES have the coldest beer around!

When you travel as much as I do, you get used to disappointment and in fact plan on that being the case a majority of the time. In the case of Shasa Catamaran I was pleasantly surprised by what my kids have dubbed "The best excursion we have ever taken!"
My kids are 11-13-15 and 19 and are boys and girls so as you can imagine lightening strikes more often than all four of them agreeing on the same thing.
We arrived at the meeting point and were met, on time, by our driver who was friendly and provided us with a tour guide explanation of what we were passing as we travelled the coast to our destination. When we arrived, Jason, our captain was beaching his pride and joy, Shasa. we exchanged niceties, snapped a few photos and hopped aboard for a fun day that kept us 1 step ahead of the cruise ship excursions allowing us to spend quality alone time with the sea turtles which were the main attraction.
After saying goodbye to the sea turtles the sails were hoisted and we sailed the coast to another reef where fish were plentiful and the coral was abundant. This was followed by a sail to a quiet coastline and a lunch spread fit for a king and his entire family.
We never wanted for anything thanks to the first mate Alex and thanks to this excursion the kids want to spend a week in Barbados next year.
If you want to maximize your day in Barbados at a very reasonable cost, you MUST book Shasa. You will not be disappointed.

Me and My Wife booked with Jason in June. We received a call that morning that he was concerned it may rain and wanted to know if we wanted to re-schedule. This thoughtfulness goes a long way in business. We could not re-schedule so we went out anyway and luckily most of the day was just fine. Jason and his wife were great to hang out with when we were not in the water and there was no rushing to our adventure. We got to go in the water without feeling like cattle and without feeling like it was all about profit for them. This is the one to take if you want to enjoy the island water like you live on the island and are going out for a relaxing snorkel with island friends. They were also very good about getting to and from locations before the mad corporate fleet of cattle snorkelers arrived.

Want to experience the water at your own pace? Want to feel like you have friends on the island? Go on the Shasa Catamaran Cruise with Captain Jason!

We were on a 7 day cruise and I have to say this was our FAVORITE STOP and FAVORITE TOUR!!! Jason and his wife Alex were WONDERFUL!!!! He had a driver pick us up outside the port to carry us to the beach to catch the Catamaran. By doing this we beat the crowds at every stop and that was awesome!!! His driver was great at explaining our drive over as well. Jason was very active in helping get the turtles to us and showing us and letting us know what to do while in the ocean swimming with them. Jason and Alex were both awesome, they answered all of our questions and believe me our daughters had tons of questions. After we swam with the turtles he took us to an awesome coral reef where we snorkeled and enjoyed the water. After we left the coral reef we sailed to a beach where Jason and Alex grabbed us lunch and set it up for us and let me just say it was the BEST food ever!!!! After lunch we were able to lay on the Catamaran or swim and we enjoyed the rest of our day at that beach till time to sail back to the pick up location. If you visit Barbados this is a must do!!!! If you choose to over look this experience it is your loss!!! This experience is so worth the money plus some!!!!

We booked Shasa after reading several reviews on the internet. The day was amazing.
We were celebrating a birthday and what a great day it was. We were picked up outside our hotel which was a perfect start to the day. We were swimmers of all ages and abilities, but this was not a problem. Jason and Matthew were very attentive and put you at ease in the water. Nothing was a problem.
We booked a four hour cruise and enjoyed a beautiful lunch on board. It certainly was a memorable birthday! We are hoping to return to Barbados next year and will certainly be giving Jason a call.
Thank you. The Bodsworth Family.

We had a wonderful day of sailing, snorkelling, swimming with the turtles and talking with Jason. We did the three hour sail and it turned out we were the only two booked that day. The ride to and from the cruise pier was comfortable. We would sail again with Jason and recommend Shasa!
