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.

The Shasa Catamaran Cruise was great from start to finish. It was very convenient to be picked up at the cruise port and transported directly to the boat. Once we arrived, Jason and Alex we're very welcoming and insightful about the island and sea life. The snorkelling was great and we saw a few turtles and lots of fish. It was very enjoyable sailing around and taking in all the views. Once we arrived back at the beach, our ride was there right on time to pick us up and take us back.

We had an awesome time with Jason and Alex on Shasa! We were promptly picked up and returned to the cruise port. We had a group of 4 and were the only ones on the boat, which was a great surprise. We saw two turtles and tons of fish at two different stops, the rest of our three hour trip was spent sailing, relaxing, and enjoying some complimentary drinks! Our time on Barbados was well spent.

Fabulous mornings cruise. The 3 hour excursion is just enough for you to experience Barbados' excellent marine half. Jason and Alex were really lovely hosts, welcoming, friendly, very attentive and knowledgeable. We have already recommended using this company for cruises to 6 people since using them as they were that good. If you want a more intimate day out without lots of crowds this would be for you. It won't disappoint. Thanks J&A. See you next year!

If you want to be on a crowded catamaran, and have so-called rum punch poured down your throat, and not see or learn very much at all, please leave now, you are in the wrong place.

If, on the other hand, you appreciate the wisdom of a captain who has spent many years around these shores, and the company of a couple who are very engaging and knowledgeable, and dedicated to ensuring both your safety and maximum enjoyment, look no further! You have found the right place!

The 4 of us booked a Private Charter yesterday afternoon, and it was quite magical. The other reviews have said it all already. Stop shopping around, just book 'em right now.

24 hours on, and we are still buzzing.....

I don't think Jason and Alex, who are very modest, know how good they really are...

Thanks so much Jason and Alex - even though we didn't have the greatest weather the day we sailed with you, we still enjoyed ourselves very much. The size of your boat is perfect and we loved the personal attention of having our family's private charter with you. The turtles were amazing and we learned so much. Have some great photos and video as momentos, too. We will send you a picture, as the day after we sailed with you, we were fortunate enough to stumble upon hatchlings on the beach in front of our condo on the south coast! What an incredible addition to an already fantastic trip. Happy New Year to you and your family and all the best in 2015.

We joined Jason and Alex along with our 2 children aged 10 and 11 for a morning cruise with another couple who we didn't know. We had a blast! Swimming with the turtles, fantastic snorkelling over the reef and we even saw an octopus. Jason and Alex really know how to look after you and get you there before the larger boats get there so you have the sea to yourselves. Great knowledge on the turtles too and we managed to see more turtles throughout the holiday - even a hatching! If you go on any cruise whilst in Barbados, make sure you go on Shasa - but make sure you book!!!

Today we went on a phenomenal catamaran excursion! Alex and Jason are fantastic and created a wonderful and memorable trip. They crafted the experience exactly to our wants including snorkeling with turtles, hand feeding fish, and napping on the bow of the boat during a smooth sail along the Barbadian coast. This is a MUST DO for anyone visiting the island. While there are several catamaran options to choose from, this personalized, private offering allows you to evade the boisterous ‘booze-cruise’ mentality- while providing an endless supply of tasty drinks!! We will absolutely sail with them again!

This was the most amazing time!! We went on a cruise and stopped in Barbados for the day. We got to enjoy an amazing day on a catamaran with Jason, his wife Alex and a sweet couple from England. The 4 people in our group had a GREAT time relaxing on the boat and seeing beautiful sea turtles. We look forward to returning to Barbados and will for sure plan another adventure with Shasa!!!

The experience started with Elroy the cab driver who picked us up at the condo and answered our questions and kindly shared his knowledge of the Island, we then boarded on the catamaran. Jason(The Captain) and his wife Alex, were simply great to be around. We first saw the turtles under the water and we next went to the coral reef area and fed the fish. Jason found spots that were not crowded which made the snorkeling experience easy and fun. We were able to get photos from underwater sent to our email free of charge. In between, complementary water, juice, and drinks were available for the entire trip, the rum punch was great! Even my mother who did not go snorkeling enjoyed her trip. It was very affordable with transportation to and from the location. Our cab driver Wayne who returned us to our condo was also great! I highly recommend using them, and if your reading this, we had a great time guys. Thanks!
