We had a blast on the Tortuga. We caught a lot of fish, and the boat is BYOB. The boat was crowded with other groups and it is first come, first serve with purchasing tickets. Arrive early!

Like most I read reviews before I went, and i did not have anything close to the negative comments others made. We had about 40 or so people on board and fished at three spots. Clearly not everyone can get the stern of the boat....More

Okay, I read reviews before I left and read one that stated that they cater to locals. Thought "Oh, they had a bad day of fishing" happens to us all. Should have listened. In my opinion: it is a waste of your money to book...More

Great boat and crew! A must do if you are visiting or are a local. Priced right and not so long that the inexperienced fisherman gets board. I have been many times and always have a blast!
