Our group of six (all in our 60s) had a lovely, relaxing day on the boat, starting with a first-rate breakfast accompanied by huge mugs of steaming cappuccino during our sail out to the reef. There we anchored and snorkeled for about an hour, while Cindy Lou and Rick took numerous fun photos of us, the fish and coral with their underwater cameras...a real bonus since no one in our party had such equipment. During our relaxing sail back to shore we enjoyed a wonderful lunch, snacks and beverages... it was all so idyllic. Thank you Captain Rick & Cindy Lou!

We're glad you were able to snorkel in our tropical, warm waters! That Oregon water is too cold for me now. And all of you should be poster people of what you can easily do when you've reach the 60+ age group! Glad you like our photos. We can't imagine our guests be bothered with taking photos- your busy making memories. Did you know that all the pictures that we uploaded of your day are truly only from that day? We never include any promo shots - no fudging. And we obviously know that the "Mackin Group" is more than capable to showing their best side every day, all day.

It was a great day hunting lobsters thanks to Captain Rick and First Mate Cindy! They took us to the mother hole and the hunt was on. This was a family adventure with husband and 17yr. old son. A weekend to remember for a lifetime not only for the time spent together but for also meeting our limit in hunting lobsters!

April,
It was great having your family join us for opening day of Lobster Mini-Season. Even though your hubby was a "seasoned gatherer" it was rewarding knowing that you and Cyrus had your moments in the sun (and the ledges). Enjoy your catch and see you again!

Patti,
So glad to hear that you had a marvelous day. We try to make every trip in and on our waters an unique discovery full of all the wonderful things that we love so much. I like to congratulate you on your first-timer bravery - especially since the waters were not as clear or calm that day as we'd like. Thanks for rolling with us and we welcome you back anytime.

We did a charter with Captain Rick and Cindy Lou and had a BLAST of a time. First Mate was terrific in coordinating whatever we wanted on-board and prepping everything and helping us all along with the gear, snorkel, etc. VERY friendly charter. CPT Rick was a big hit with my son, letting him at the helm for about 30 minutes. I don't remember the names of the reefs, but the entire trip was a success for us, and if you have the time, and you'll be in the area....YOU HAVE TO CHARTER WITH TORTUGA SALING ADVENTURES, CAPTAIN RICK AND CINDY LOU!

Thanks for spending a special day with Capt. Rick & I. We had a wonderful time with you all. Josh, your really a swimmer - don't think otherwise. You'll be a super snorkeler sooner than later..and maybe a fine captain with a little more time at the wheel. You all put more "awesome" in our day.

Who knew that after traveling around the world, one of my best vacations would be in my own backyard. My overnight trip to the Marquesas with Tortuga Sailing Adventures, run by the very knowledgeable and fun Captain Rick and his delightful and capable first mate Cindy Lou, would be so much more than I ever imagined. Each morning I was greeted with delicious fresh fruits and cappucino. The day was followed by playful options: snorkeling, swimming, island exploring, riding in the dingy, kayaking, paddle boarding, relaxing on deck, or resting on the trampoline to catch some rays. The water in the Marquesas is outstanding, the colors ranging from emerald green, topaz blue, clear, sky blue, to teal and everything in between. You'll be amazed at the beauty of the environment, untouched and preserved. If you're into fishing, get a fishing license ahead of time but, don't worry...Captain Rick and Cindy Lou are extremely competent fishers and will make a fresh catch of the day for dinner on an overnight trip. Also, the Tortuga is pristine clean and well maintained. You will feel comfortable and at home on board because this vessel is truly ship-shape. Above all, you will savor the memory of this vacation like a great meal because it will be perfect. This IS the very BEST of KEY WEST!

Diana, I couldn't have picked a more gracious guest than you and I assure you that you will be welcomed back over and over. From exploring around the islands, seeing turtles everywhere and playing cards late into the evening it was all good - every bit of it. Looking forward to another adventure soon.
