Shasa, meaning ‘Precious Waters’, is a stunning 30 foot catamaran, owned and captained by Jason O’Neal, who has over twenty years of sailing experience.

Licensed to carry 12 passengers, our aim is to provide our guests with a more intimate and personal service, and therefore numbers are limited to eight people.

Based in Holetown, we offer free transportation to and from the cruise terminal and west coast.

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 cruises.

Committed to respecting the environment and the marine life of Barbados we aim to make our tours as eco-friendly as possible.

We have been coming to Barbados for 6 years and always do a Catamaran trip. Finding Shasa last year was great. They don't take more than 8 and for our last two trips it's just been the four of us. Jason and Alex were great hosts last year and this year we were introduced to Rory. What great company the... More

In June 2015 we engaged Shasa for a private snorkeling adventure while on an RC cruise and none of us have been able to stop talking about it since. There were 8 of us on board that day and it may have been the best vacation day any of us have ever had. So why did it take a year... More

There were 8 of us and we had the boat to ourselves. Jason and Rory made great efforts to make sure we saw a turtle. Lovely lunch.

We were a bit bamboozled by the number of cruise options, and wanted a genuine (non-touristy) experience for ourselves and our four boys. We were not disappointed, Jason and Rory were exceptional hosts, and we had a wonderfully laid back but informative trip. They were very knowledgeable of the island and the marine wildlife, and Jason took us away from... More

My family and I sailed with Jason and Alex back in August, from start to finish the whole experience was wonderful. Their attention to detail and hospitality was exemplary throughout the time we spent with them. Jason who is Bajan knows the waters around the island like the back of his hand, he makes a point of avoiding where all... More

We've been on a lunchtime private cruise with Jason every year for the last 5 years. It's just a magical experience that I wouldn't miss...swimming with the turtles, feeding the fish, snorkeling around the reef. Jason does a great job of looking after everyone and ensuring we all have a great time. All I can say is don't miss this!

My partner, daughter & I decided to go on the sunset cruise..the crew was Jason (the owner) & Rory (co-pilot). We had a party of 3 & there was another family of 4 on the boat, but there was plenty of room for all. Jason & Rory made us feel very welcome, we were offered rum punch, beer, soft drinks... More

I can't say enough positive things about Jason and Shasa Catamaran Cruises over all. We were in Barbados for the day with a cruise ship, and had contacted Jason in advance to reserve his services. From the get go he gave the fastest response, the most reasonable price, and was just a breeze to work with. When we arrived, everything... More
