Overview
More
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.

After a leisurely cruise up the coast from Hometown, we stopped to snorkel and find some turtles. We finally spotted one, and Jason fed it to keep it around a little bit. We then headed to a spot on the reef where we saw an...More

Lovely 3 hour cruise today, for 2 inexperienced snorkelers, definitely the high point of our stay on Barbados. Jason knows the good spots to see fascinating sea life and gives a great tour of "millionaire's row" on the shoreline. Shasa is smaller than some of...More

Tremendous trip out on Shasa. Jill, Paul, Clair and Richard were extremely well looked after by Jason and Rory. I (Paul) was particularly nervous about the snorkelling (not good swimmer) but Rory coaxed me into the water and looked after me throughout. So glad he...More

I thought the best way of seeing the amazing island of Barbados would be in a rental mini-van that feels like it is going to succumb to the moon-like surface of the country's road system and fall apart around you at any given moment. It's...More

Thank you for contacting us. Shasa is a 30 foot day charter catamaran and does not have a room with a safe. Kind regards, Jason O'Neal
