The Tortuga functions as a floating hotel with seven guest cabins that accommodate two anglers each.

There are plenty of rod racks as well as good facilities for washing and cleaning your tackle after a day of fishing.

 

On the lower level you will find our large air conditioned dining room along with both a foredeck and afterdeck,
chairs and tables that are perfect for setting up your tackle, tying flies or relaxing after a day of fishing.


 

Avalon refurbished the Tortuga again in 2008 this was a major rebuild with a total cost of 1.5 million Usd.
The guest cabins on the upper level all have their own bathroom with sink and toilet and a good shower
with plenty of hot water.

 

Guest cabin with double bed for couples.  Each cabin has its own easily adjustable air-conditioning system.

 

Relaxing deck with sun cover and protection when needed. This foredeck is everyone’s favorite place to enjoy
appetizers like pizza and your favorite beverage before dinner. A great spot to kick back, and relax, enjoy that
perfect mojito, or smoke a great Cuban cigar while swapping tales of the day’s fishing.

 generators located on a small island nearby and is available twenty-four hours a day.

The sun set extremely fast,  so once it started you want to enjoy every single minute of it! 
 

The Tortuga is a massive, steel houseboat that is permanently secured in a small, protected channel of a big island, so that it never moves, regardless of bad weather or wind. It is extremely stable and levelled at all times so there is never  any chance of guests getting seasick.

 

Staff and chefs
 

Happy faces at the dinner table... Beverages are available on board include bottled water, Mineral and Tonic water, various soft drinks, beer, rum and excellent wines. If you prefer liquor other than rum, you can bring
this with you and our bartender will have whatever mixers you need.
