Saint James Parish, Barbados
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.

Excellent - Jason was welcoming and professional. John was brilliant in the water leading the turtle and coral snorkelling which was huge fun. The beer was super cold and readily provided. Laid back, fun and safe - thanks Jason.

Hi there We go to the shipwreck or the coral reef. It mostly depends on the traffic on the day as we like our guests to snorkel in an uncrowded atmosphere.
