The ride to and from Tortuga was a good day journey. About 30 miles each way. Some interesting views along the way. Tortuga itself is not a great destination. I did not go into the water as I thought I could see red tide. Did go on the beach. Way over priced t-shirts and tourist stuff. Also anchorage was rough. If I made the trip again, would find another place to drop the hook and just swim off the boat. Really good location for birding.
