About Shasa Catamaran Cruises
The Stylish & comfortable Shasa catamarans cater specifically to small groups of 10 or less where the emphasis is definitely on personalized service in a friendly, laid-back atmosphere. At 30 feet ,Shasa carries just 8 passengers, & Shasa II measuring 38 feet carries a maximum of 10. With more than 20 years sailing experience, Captain Jason O'Neal has a richly deserved reputation with all his guests, with many of them returning to sail on the Shasa catamarans time & time again. Based in Holetown, we offer free transportation to and from the cruise terminal, South and west coasts. Once on board, you’ll be supplied with masks, snorkels and flotation devices, and for those less confident in the water, snorkeling instruction is available from Captain Jason or a member of the Shasa crew. A range of complimentary drinks will be served throughout your day. Homemade banana bread is served on our snorkel cruises and white wine is offered with lunch on our 5 hour cruise.

We were recommended this by the proprietor of the lovely Sea Cat restaurant, and Jason didn’t let us down. On request he took us out on the catamaran to explore the West Coast of Barbados and watch the sunset for one our birthdays. We swam with some very friendly turtles, which was probably the best bit, and he was able to give us some info on local sights and historical points of interest. A great trip.

We have visited Barbados several times and we have sailed with Shasa Catamaran Cruises many times. Captain Jason and first mate Jonathon are simply the best that is out there which is why we keep coming back - 12 years on! We have sailed with other companies so we do have a comparison and they are in a whole different league. You will not be disappointed. From the moment you step aboard, you can expect a very warm welcome and of course a lovely ice cold rum punch! Jason and Jonathon will take you away from the hustle and bustle of destinations visited by the masses for a far more exclusive experience. We had THE most incredible time swimming with the beautiful turtles, my absolute passion. Jonathon comes in the water with you and feeds them so you can watch from up close. these incredible creatures. We then sailed on to explore a ship wreck which has an incredible number of fish around it. Such a relaxing, exciting, memory making afternoon. We have some brilliant GoPro footage to treasure these memories - until the next time ... one thing is for certain, we will be back and we will be sailing with Shasa again. 100% recommend you look into sailing with Jason and Jonathon.

We had a wonderful 5 hour lunch cruise with Capt. Jason & First Mate Johnathon. We sailed north up the west coast, snorkeled with the sea turtles & over a reef. It was the first time my wife had snorkeled & she was ably assisted by Johnathon. Lunch was really good with fried fish, chicken, rice, pasta, salad, slaw, pound cake, etc. Of course, the plantation punch was quite tasty. My wife & I were joined by two other couple friends & a younger couple from Toronto, Canada. It was a wonderful day on the water. We highly recommend Shasa Catamaran Cruises.

I can't rate Jason and Jonathan highly enough. They looked after us beautifully from the moment we met them. They took us to a much quieter swim stop for the turtles and reef. Lunch was fabulous. It was so much nicer to have a smaller catamaran to sail in, wouldn't hesitate to book with them. Thank you guys.
