The Best- Jason is a gracious host and a world class sailor. The food is great. We have used him for family outings for many years and every trip is great.

Our family spent a fantastic and memorable morning with Jason and Alex on their lovely catermaran sailing along the west coast, stopping to snorkel over a reef and swimming with turtles. It was a very personal service (there were no other passengers) and all our family - kids 13, 11, 9 and 6 years - really enjoyed the whole experience.... More

This was our 3rd trip with Captain Jason on the Shasa catamaran and it was excellent as always. We really prefer the Shasa due to the terrific service and the smaller group experience. We booked this tour for our cruise stop in Barbados and everything was fantastic from the transportation waiting for us at the pier to sailing the beautiful... More

Jason and Alex were great and treated us as if we were family! We swam with turtles and in a reef and saw tones of fish. Great people, great boat, great day.

We agree with so much of what all the positive reviews have said! We especially appreciated Jason and Alex's hospitality and gentleness. We want to add a few details others might be interested in knowing: the boat is immaculate and incredibly maintained; there is a bathroom onboard :); and the boat picks you up on the beach (you don't have...

Jason and Alex were amazing! We came on this trip with another couple and we had a great experience. They were totally accommodating of everything we could have needed. They offered drinks all day, they had amazing banana bread for a snack and the catered lunch they brought in was the best did we had all week! Jason and Alex... More

My family of four (kids 12 and 15) went on the snorkeling adventure and had a great time. We saw many kinds of fish and several sea turtles. Jason and Alex were great hosts and I enjoyed the smaller group setting.

We had two snorkel stops and one lunch/swimming stop. We saw turtles and beautiful fish. The last stop was for lunch which included fish, chicken, rice, pasta, salad, and bread and was delicious and we... More

This was our second time using Shasa. The first time was with Jason only. This time he had his "first mate" Alex with him. She was a great addition! We took this excursion while on a cruise. We chose Shasa because it is like taking a trip with friends. And, instead of 60-80 people on some huge boat, his catamaran... More
