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.

Jason and T gave us an amazing experience and memories!!! My son was so excited swimming with the fish and turtles and the ride along the coast was so relaxing, amazing catamaran!!! Rum punch on board was fantastic! Complementary taxi service to and from the hotel was great! Thanks, will definitely use Shasa when we come back!

This was by far the best activity we have done on Barbados. The Onboard team of Jason & T were super welcoming and friendly. The plan for the day was to do some snorkelling and then sail up the coast and back. We were quickly in the ocean and at snorkelling spot where we swam with Turtles, a Ray & many types of fish. We then sailed on to Folkestone Marine Park where we snorkelled with T above a sunken wreck a fed/ saw many types of fish. Given the location of Jasons catamaran (near Holetown) it allows him to get to the snorkelling sites before all the other Boats out of Bridgetown. Following the swim we had drinks and were lucky enough to catch some decent breeze in the sails which whisked us up the coast allowing us to view the beautiful West Coast of the Island from on board. We were dropped off back on shore exactly on time where our driver picked us up. It was a most memorable morning and we couldn’t recommend Jason, T and their boat highly enough. We will do this trip again when we return.

We were a party of 9 and hired a catamaran with Jason and Tee for a four hour trip to snorkel around the coral and see the turtles. We saw some amazing fish, ate a lovely lunch and drank a few rum punches. This was our second trip with Jason and we can't recommend him enough. Best cruise on the island

Shassa is top notch. Easy to book and communicate with. We did 3 hour tour, snorkeled and had some delicious drinks. Jason is a native and knows everything Barbados. Tee was super friendly and helpful getting in/out of boat. Also got a great dinner recommendation!!! Well worth it !!
