Jason the captain even took photos of the turtles while we were swimming with them and uploaded them to drop box. The... More

Had a fantastic day out with Jason, even if you are non swimmer like me, you can just sit back and relax, while those who could swim enjoyed their time with the turtles and snorkeling in the the beautiful Caribbean sea. We also had a wonderful, freshly prepared lunch, which consisted of salad, macaroni pie, chicken and blue marlin, rice... More

Jason, who rightly is very proud of his boat, supplies the best of trips by ensuring he arrives at the sites, turtles and reef, before the larger boats arrive and send send their many guests into the water. We had a wonderful day being picked up off the beach, an experience in itself, trip out to the reef chatting to... More

We booked Shasa for a private cruise for our family. We were 7 adults and a 19 month old! While first impressions threw us for a loop (the catamaran was much smaller than we anticipated ) we have absolutely NO complaints! We were treated first class and the size of the boat didn't matter..although I'm not sure I'd want to... More

Jason and Alex are wonderful hosts and I had an awesome time!. I took the 3 hour cruise and the catamaran was small so the trip was much more intimate, a one on one experience. I can't begin to express how much I enjoyed my time both on the boat and in the water! Jason got us to the turtle... More

We had the best time, snorkelling with the turtles (and rays) and on the reef afterwards. Our 13 year old daughter asked us if she could go back again the next day ' they... More

As other reviewers have commented, going out on Shasa is the best way to get out to see the turtles before the other boats arrive! It was really nice to snorkel as part of a small group (8 persons), and we had a good amount of time at both snorkelling stops - I never felt rushed and certainly never felt... More
