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.

“Fantastic trip, wonderful people!”

My husband and I were staying at Colony Club in Holetown and Jason and Alex were kind enough to pick us up directly outside our hotel. We were greeted with warm smiles and Rum Punch, of course. During our trip, we were able to swim with four lovely sea turtles and snorkel amongst beautiful fish. We had a delicious snack on our way in. I recommend Shasa to anyone wanting a more intimate cruise. Jason and Alex are kind and welcoming people. They even sent us a link to a Dropbox folder of the GoPro pictures Jason took while swimming with the turtles. Two thumbs up!

''A grand day out''

We chose Shasa catamaran quite simply because it offered a more personal experience. Shasa is a smaller vessel than those typically found in Barbados and they limit their guests to a maximum of 8 pax. Skipper Jason and first mate Alex (or have I got that the wrong way round!) were the perfect hosts providing a wealth of local knowledge and a sumptuous buffet lunch mid way. Much of the cruise was under sail, a very relaxing experience. Jason took underwater photographs of the turtles and fish, which we were able to download at home. We highly recommend this.

“Catamaran Cruise you can't beat!!! ”

We booked a private 4 hour catamaran tour for our party of 8 while in Barbados and we couldn't have been happier with our experience.

Alex and Jason were very welcoming and friendly. In our 4 hour cruise we swam with tons of turtles (getting there before all the bigger boats moved in), saw some amazing fish on the quiet reef we snorkelled, walked a nice beach where we saw more turtles, sea snakes and even found sand dollars.

The catamaran was very comfortable for our group, the rum punch was just great and the lunch was absolutely delicious...

And Jason and Alex even sent photos of our day with the turtles!

Would absolutely do it all over again!

''Fun Day''

We had a very relaxing day on the boat. My wife and I with our 17 YO daughter and her friend. Only one other couple with us on this day. Sea Turtles were great. Jason and Alex took great care of us. We preferred the small catamaran over the larger ones with 20-30 people aboard. Would do it again on our next trip.

''Amazing private lunch cruise''

We went on a private 5 hour lunch cruise for two with Jason. It was absolutely fantastic. Jason was extremely professional and friendly. Transfer to and from our hotel was included, along with two snorkeling stops and a massive Bajan lunch! The boat is well maintained and perfect for small groups (8 people max) who don't want to be crowded on a larger boat with strangers. The stop with the turtles was especially fun. Jason had an underwater camera and took some AMAZING photos that I am so happy to have. I give Shasa my highest recommendation if you are looking for a unique catamaran experience here in Barbados!

''The highlight of our holiday''

Jason and Alex were great.
Despite a month having passed since our trip, it's still the talk of our holiday.
We were a group of six adults, collected from the beach near our villa and given a relaxing cruise along the coast with drinks and lovely coconut bread.
They have so much local knowledge, we learned so much about the Island in those few hours.
We anchored a few times, snorkelling firstly with the Turtles - which we amazing, as are the photos that Jason took - which we'll treasure, and then a stop to snorkel with loads of amazing fish.
If you want the personal touch then without a doubt this is a great trip.

''Brilliant as usual''

This is the third or fourth time we've been out with Jason on his catamaran. See you again next year.

''Amazing trip''

We had a great time with Alex and Jason on their catamaran Shasa. They picked us at the beach of our hotel and we sailed along the west coast to where the turtles are.
We swam with the turtles and went snorkelling and saw a huge variety of colourful fish. The fact that they only take small parties (maximum 8 I think) is great. Jason made sure we got up close to the turtles and took photos and emailed them to us as a brilliant way of remembering our trip. The coconut bread was gorgeous and there were plenty of drinks on offer. I would highly recommend this trip.

''Wonderful day in paradise''

What a day!!!! Collected from a beautiful beach, turtles, fish, crystal clear ocean, a great lunch and maybe a few drinks just for good measure. Jason and Alex are a great husband a wife team that made our day and my holiday. We will be back in Jan 2016 and they will get a call. Highly recommended to all, young and old...thanks J & A
