Thanks to our great hosts Alex & Jason we spent a wonderful day on Shasa on a recent cruise stop in Barbados. The snorkeling is first class, getting to the sea turtles early, before the "rush hour", and then at the reef. The lunch was excellent and drinks plentiful, what better way to spend a day!

We had the pleasure of sailing with Jason and Alex during a one day cruise ship stop. Transportation to and from the pier was by private taxi. My GF and I were joined by a family of five making it a total of seven on the tour. The snorkeling was great and Jason made sure we got to the turtle... More

I would highly recommend this excursion!! Alex and Jason are great hosts! You will enjoy every minute on shasa and snorkeling with the turtles. A definite highlight of our cruise.

From start to finish Shasa Catamaran was a wonderful experience. Pick up at cruise pier went according to Jason's email. His catamaran is the perfect size for 8 -10 people and we arrived at the turtle snorkel area before all other companies. Drinks and food were plentiful and delicious. As a first time snorkeler I was very comfortable knowing Jason... More

Shasa Catamaran Cruises gave us a great day of swimming with turtles and snorkeling on a near shore reef with dozens of colorful species of fishes. While our trip had to be cut short due to an impending storm, Jason was very conscious of all his clients needs and safety throughout the cruise. So nice to be a small ship... More

Jason does a really good job - we did a wonderful private sunset trip with them to see sea turtles, snorkel, and sail. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a low key, small boat sailing experience.

We had a wonderful time on the lunch cruise with Alex and Jason. Everything was very professionally run with great customer service. We were able to see a number of turtles and scores of fish.The lunch was a delicious Bajan buffet. Our time at Gibbs Beach was long enough for a leisurely walk and swim. It was a wonderful day...

This was the most amazing experience. There were three couples in our group, which was so awesome. Snorkeling with the turtles and stingray was beyond belief. Jason and Alex were the best hosts ever. Looking forward to doing this again.

Jason and Alex were great hosts. They made sure that we were able to get to the snorkel site before the cruise ship excursions got there. We were able to have quality time.
