About us

Shasa Catamaran Cruises was founded in 2005 by Barbadian Jason O’Neal.

Shasa, meaning ‘Precious Waters’, are two stunning catamarans. Shasa is 30 feet and can comfortably carry 12 guests, however we limit numbers to 8 to provide a more personal and intimate experience.

Shasa II is our latest addition at 38 feet and can comfortably carry 16, however we limit numbers to 10 also to provide a personal and intimate experience. Each cruise is captained and crewed by our friendly staff who are there to make sure the day is a memorable one.

We offer shared cruises for 3 hours, 5 hours, including lunch, and a 3-hour sunset cruise, each of which includes free snorkelling instruction and unlimited drinks.

Our most popular offering is the private charter, which allows our guests to decide how they want to spend their day with us.

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

We are proud to highlight that Shasa Catamaran Cruises won the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence in 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014 & 2013.

“Amazing day”

Skipper Jason and his First Mate, Rory were amazing hosts! The drinks were flowing regularly too. Rory swam down and found fish and turtles for us to see. The photos Rory took are amazing and available free of charge, which is fantastic. We had the best day - only wish we could do it all over again. Thank you.

“Snorkeling in Barbados”

We had an awesome experience with Jason & Rory. In addition to seeing lots of turtles when snorkeling we also also saw four humpback whales in the distance. Jason really knew the best places to snorkel and Rory was awesome underwater. Great couple of very nice guys that made our day with them the highlight of our trip.

“Birthdays and Bucket Lists!”

We have literally just got back from what was an incredibly special trip with Jason and Rory! We cannot thank them enough for how well they looked after us on our Sunset Cruise, just amazing! We laughed, cried (seeing turtles does that to you) and drank our way into pure bliss! Both Jason and Rory were so helpful, especially with getting someone who is scared of the sea to go snorkeling - great professionalism all round! Seriously guys, thanks so, so much!! Jack, Laura, Emily, Cherry and Rich xxxx

“What a great way to spend a day”

Have been on Shasa before...hence why we returned. Great skipper, first mate. Jason and Rory were a lot of fun. Took us to snorkal with the turtles and again over a reef. Laid on great lunch which we had while sitting in a quiet bay. My only complaint....pretty sure way to much rum in my punch!!! :)...although not as much as Darren...he saw bears!!
Thanks guys for a great day...will be back

“Small Intimate Experience”

Picked up in Holetown, the crew was very cautious about getting us on board. We traveled to several different spots and snorkeled with turtles and fish on the coral. An amazing lunch and so much local knowledge. The guys were great especially while we were snorkeling.

“My trip on 27 April 17”

From start to finish we were given a first class service. We did the cruise and had lunch on board, the food was excellent, the rum and bears were flowing. What a great day, I would highly recommend this trip. Thank you very much Jason( Captain) and Rory

“Sunny Monday”

We really enjoyed our time on this excursion. They altered our trip to best accommodate us around other boats. Good lunch and special care taken when needed.

“Great short notice small group sunset trip”

Was trying to get a sunset trip in May but it's quiet and many operators were not offering so glad that Jason responded with a trip in a day's time.

It suited exactly what we wanted with a pick up at the hotel, jump on the boat with 2 other couples and off we went. Great afternoon for sailing up the north west coast.
Rory and Jason were very good, informative and helpful - drinks on tap!

Snorkelling with the turtles and coral fish was great then a gentle sail back down the coast enjoying a wonderful sunset.

Perfect end to a week on the west coast and a great cruise, thanks.

We toured with Jason and Seb on November 20th 2017.. It was an absolute amazing trip.. Both guys where so professional and knowledgeable. The trip was so enjoyable. The sea turtles where beautiful and snorkelling was a lot of fun.. We where picked up right on our beach and returned again. Will absolutely recommend this trip to everyone.

Best Catamaran guide!
Oh my. We have traveled to lots of places and had many boat rides- this was as good as it gets. So friendly, so helpful and accommodating. Tools us to great spots- we could pet the turtles! Great info, great conversation and great time. Jason and Sebastian were so kind and helpful to our whole family. We had an amazing day! Call Jason today to book! He will take great care of you!

Best of the best! Great fun and the crew made us feel so comfortable and welcome. There were 5 of us on the cruise. Adult beverages and a lovely lunch were served. Saw beautiful turtles and fish when we stopped.
