Booked a 4 hour trip on Shasa with our 3 teenage girls. The booking process with Jason was easy and efficient and a 10am pickup from Holetown was perfect for us. Jason and Matthew were friendly and informative. We all thoroughly enjoyed plenty of swimming with turtles and fishes as well as a delicious lunch.

This was our second time on Shasa, even better than the last. Having Matthew swim with us was fantastic, he was very knowledgeable about all the fish and fed the turtles so we had a great experience swimming with the turtles. Great for families of all ages, we have four children between 9 and 16, it was a great trip.

We saved the best for our last day in Barbados, a cruise and a swim with the turtles on the catamaran Shasa. Jason is the most cordial host, Captain, and very informative about the Caribbean coast line of Barbados. A most pleasant and relaxing time on the Shasa which hosts a smaller number of passengers allowing for more interaction with... More

Want to see turtles in their natural habitat? This is a great trip for that. If you are arriving by cruise ship, which my wife and I were, they pick you up at the port and give you a little tour of the island of Barbados. We were dropped off at the beach where we were picked up in a... More

We chose Shasa for our catamaran cruise, as the initial contact was friendly and reviews on this site were impressive. Jason and Alex (just six days into married life together!) were very welcoming and, safety matters dealt with, we headed off down the coast. Jason kept us just ahead of the pack and we were able to snorkel and turtle... More

We decided to choose this catamaran after reading the previous reviews. It was the calm, relaxing and friendly experience we were hoping for. We arrived early enough to swim with the turtles before the crowded Jammin arrived on the scene. My daughter took some great photos with her new underwater camera and also took many at the reef we visited... More

This was easily one of the best days of our vacation! Jason and Matthew picked us up from the beach and took us straight out to swim with the turtles. We got there nice and early before all the other cruises turned up so we had plenty of turtles around us. After that the sails were put up and we... More

This was positively the BEST day of our cruise. Wym picked up our group of 12 at the ship and took us to his sailboat. He also had two young ladies with him. We sailed for a while and snorkeled at a couple of reefs. They pointed out some very beautiful coral. The coral is protected and is so gorgeous.... More

We booked our tour and it ended up being just my husband and myself along with Jason. He was a fantastic guide. We snorkelled with the sea turtles and then snorkelled by the ship wreck. I got some amazing underwater pictures and had a great day with Jason. Will definitely do again when in Barbados again!

Sailing with Shasa was an exceptional experience. Jason and Matthew were very profressional and looked after us perfectly. My family booked the 5 hour lunch cruise for 6 adults. We found Shasa through their easy to use website and of course looked at the TripAdvisor reviews - so thought it only fair to do the same and share our excellent... More
