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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

Our family of 5 had a wonderful snorkeling and sailing day in Barbados! Jason and Alex were so welcoming and friendly. The coconut cake and drinks were excellent and it was great to have such a private trip with only one other family. Jason made sure we were able to snorkel with the turtles before the large catamarans arrived. Hope... More
