The large double-decker floating hotel
The Tortuga functions as a floating hotel with seven double guest cabins. The Tortuga is a massive, steel houseboat that is permanently secured in a small, protected cannel. Not to worry, while on The Tortuga there is no chance of guests getting seasick.
The Tortuga was refurbished in 2008 with a major rebuild a total investment of 1.5 million dollars. The guest cabins on the upper level all have their own bathrooms with sink, toilet and a proper shower with plenty of hot water. Each cabin has its own easily adjustable air-conditioning system.
On the lower level you will find our large air-conditioned dining room along with a foredeck, afterdeck equipped with chairs and tables that are perfect for setting up your tackle, tying flies or relaxing after a day of activities. The foredeck is everyone’s favorite place to enjoy appetizers and a cocktail before dinner. Both decks are a great spot to kick back, relax, and enjoy that perfect mojito, smoke a Cuban cigar while swapping tales of the day’s adventures.
