We spent the afternoon and evening with Captain Rick! Cindy Lou was awesome helping get everything coordinated and customizing our charter. Captain Rick and Tad made us all feel completely comfortable on the boat and getting us all off and snorkeling. Boat is beautiful and comfortable and Captain Rick is obviously very knowledgeable! Can't wait til next time!

I took my daughters to Key West and enjoyed a great day with Captain Rick and Cindi. the boat is a Catamaran and offers great seating in the front to lay out on the net and feel the breeze. Crew is very friendly and made the day very enjoyable.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! Cindy Lou was very responsive from the first inquiry. I decided at the last minute to book in the Tortuga after talking to Cindy Lou and was so happy I did. Seas were a little rough, but still had a wonderful time.

Rick took us around the island (can't remember which one!) where we anchored for the night and we explored on the beach.

Cindy Lou is a great hostess and made delicious meals and snacks, but more importantly a wonderful person. I had made a new friend by the time the trip was over and am really grateful for that.

Rick is a very skilled and knowledgeable
Captain and I knew I was in good hands with him at the helm.

The boat is super clean and the bed was to die for!!! Soooo comfy! Great toiletries (Tommy Bahama..if I recall correctly) and plenty of drinks (beer, water...or Ricks' delicious mojitos! With their own homegrown mint from their garden no less!

Cindy Lou also showed me their garden where she grows all kinds of yummy things. :)

The marina itself is very nice as well. The first night I arrived listened to some great live music at the Tiki bar.

If you are considering a catamaran to charter, look no further and book today. You will not be disappointed!

I need to go again...very soon!

Thanks Rick and Cindy Lou!

We were so glad to have you aboard S/V Tortuga out at Boca Grande Key We'll never forget the little dove (Dove Fresh) walking boldly around your feet and all throughout the salon. We enjoy showing the video and sharing the story of how something so small made such a big impression. We believe that your good karma brought that bird to our boat - and it was all good. Thank you for being you.

Our family of five had an adventure of a life time with Captain Rick and First Mate Cindi Lou! We sailed for five days around the Lower Keys snokeling of several great reefs and a couple of shipwrecks. The water was beautiful and the weather was perfect! We saw a lot of sea turtles, snorkeled a shipwreck with a Golaith Grouper that look well over 200 lbs. and other massive fish, HUGE nurse sharks while paddle boarding, found an octopus in a jar, lobsters while snorkeling, collected beautiful shells, stargazing/ slept under the stars with a light breeze and so much more. Cindi Lou did a wonderful job preparing healthy delicious meals and snacks for our family making sure we were comfortable at all times!
Don't hesitate to took book a trip with Tortuga Sailing Adventures! You won't regret it!
Thanks Captain Rick and Cindi Lou for an awesome relaxing adventure!!

We sure had a great adventure with you all. Everyone of your family members are polite and responsible and we thank you much for that. It was our pleasure to encourage your youngsters to take advantage of all that we could offer on a Key West sailing and out island experience. We believe in making wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. We feel like we were pretty successful and thank you all for your supporting and contributing to all of the activities and helping with 'real life aboard a yacht'. We are looking forward to getting you all on another big dive with more goliath groupers and huge nurse sharks :). Never fear, the sea is here.
