There are several good dive ops in the SOBX, but Tortuga is a terrific choice if you want to avoid the bigger boats with lots of divers. The Tortuga is also a very stable boat, which meant that we were able to get out to...More

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

Although I've lived in Morehead City, NC for 20 years and have been blowing bubbles for over 40 years both as a sport and commercial diver, I'm not a fan of the two local longtime "cattle boat" diving operations. I've never been diving offshore here...More

Amy, thank you for your kind words. We certainly enjoyed having you guys on the Tortuga and hope you will join us again soon. Having such pleasant people and competent divers on the boat makes our job a breeze. Hopefully we have earned your loyalty,...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

This is a top - notch operator. The boat is fantastic - clean, spacious, comfortable, well laid out. Captain James is terrific. Complete knowledge of all of the dive sites in the area, and he is a diver himself so he knows what divers are...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!

I have dove with Tortuga Charter now for the past 3 or 4 years and have nothing but praise for this operation! Captain Rosemond always has our safety in mind and we have always had a great time diving with him. Diving the Atlantic is...More

If you are an advanced diver, love wrecks, love sharks and love history then Captain Ken and his dive vessel Tortuga is the dive op for you! The Tortuga is a sea worthy six pack that will get you to the off-shore wrecks at an...More

Thank you for your review, Mundo. You actually dove with me in 2009, the year of the whale. While Mundo is correct, we do generally cater to experienced offshore divers. There are a lot of ways you can get in trouble 35 miles offshore diving...More
