About us

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, snorkelling 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.

Snorkel cruise

3 hours

Explore life beneath the waves as you get a chance to snorkel and swim with the beautiful sea turtles in their natural habitat.
Visiting the shipwreck or coral reef, you will also have the opportunity to swim with many varieties of tropical fish.

This cruise runs from 10am to 1pm.

 

 

Lunch cruise

5 hours

More leisurely than our snorkel cruise, you will have even longer to enjoy the glorious marine life.
We also take you on to a serene bay where you can enjoy a stroll along the beach before a delicious buffet style lunch of many local favourites is served on board.

This cruise runs from 10am to 3pm.

Sunset cruise

3 hours

This cruise is for the more romantic at heart!
After stopping to swim with the turtles and snorkel at the coral reef, sit back and enjoy the view as we sail along the beautiful west coast of Barbados watching the sunset.

This cruise runs from 3pm to 6pm.

Private charters

Flexible hours

Our private charter itinerary is very flexible, whether it be lunch, snorkelling or site seeing. You choose the setting and we do the rest.

Beach pick-up is available from your hotel or villa on the beach (weather conditions permitting)

“Private Cruise”

I booked Sasha Cruises for a special sunset cruise for my inlaws. They were very prompt in returning my inquiries. I was a bit nervous sending arranging this for someone else but I could not have been more pleased. My in laws were picked up at their door and they came back completely raving about the time that they had. I will certainly recommend this outfit for anyone traveling to Barbados!

"Great boat trip"

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 guys were taking us snorkelling to see turtles and fish on the reef. The food is fab the drinks flow and the boat really moves as Jason puts it through its paces if you are up for a bit of speed. A must for us and we are heading back on board in a few days time before we head back to -4 in the UK !!!

“It just doesn't get better than this!”

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 and a half to write a review? I’ve never taken the time to write a review of anything EVER - and this outing is still right in front of me if I just close my eyes. Right now I’m planning another Caribbean vaca and have spent hours trying to find some similar venture in our ports of call. The bar has been set so high – every excursion I consider is compared to that most lovely day sailing with Jason and Alex..

Our first stop was designed to get us the best chance to view sea turtle. After a short beautiful cruise under full sail, we found we had to share the spot with no one except the turtles! An hour or two later, we headed to a reef when the cruise ship excursion motored up. It seemed as though hundreds of people were unceremonious dumped into the sea, hell bent on their mission to kick as many people in the head as possible. Thankfully, they retreated quickly and after a delicious on board lunch we were able to return. Again, we were the only souls in the water swimming with our new reptilian friends.

After we returned home, Jason graciously sent us pics that he has snapped of us with the turtles! A delightful bonus!

So I you’re considering doing anything on Barbados, this should shoot to the tip top of your list!

“Great Day”

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.

“Standout trip”

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 the groups where we could observe the turtles in a respectful way. Rory guided us around the reefs, and showed the boys lots of beautiful coral and fish. And banana bread to die for! I would thoroughly recommend Shasa for a fantastic way to see the island.

“Fantastic experience, wonderful people”

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 the cattle class catamarans go to either snorkel or see the turtles, you will see the bigger catamarans off of the beaches, people crammed in like sardines.... Shasa is completely different, it is so much more a personal bespoke service.
To see my 8 year old snorkelling and swimming with turtles was wonderful, all under the watchful eye of Rory who took Oscar under his wing in the water and kept him safe.
We will be returning to Barbados next year and will book again before we go to spend the day with the guys from Shasa, a great experience for the whole family.
Alex/Jason, will see you again soon.
Best wishes Rob, Lisa, Joe and Oscar

“Chilled and relaxing”

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, snorkelling 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 & banana cake. My daughter is 12 & had never snorkelled before so I was a little apprehensive.. But Jason showed her how it was done & off she went & she absolutely loved it.. It was an amazing experience snorkelling with the turtles & Rory took a number of under water pictures which were later emailed to us. We saw a number of large catamarans but they wouldn't have offered the kind of personal service we received. Fabulous!
