Really enjoyed diving with the Captain and first mate - they really know the water here. We visited some epic dive sites and caught some of the biggest lobster ever. Boat can be a little cramped if filled with divers but it works out OK....More

This past weekend I dove four two tank days with Tortuga. This was my third trip with this boat operator. The captain and mates are professional and gregarious. Safety first, but certainly fun as a close second. This is a six pack dive boat that...More

Avoid the hustle and bustle of the over crowded dive charters. Tortuga is a nice small six pack-ish operation. The boat is very clean and ship shape! Captain James is very personable, easy going and knowledgeable. The divemaster Collin was excellent. They can get you...More

Dove July 18, 19th 2015 with Tortuga to Caribsea and U-352! Awesome experience and a great crew! New diving platform, ladder and handles made this the best out of water experience! Highly recommend them and will be diving with them again!
