Vessel Walkthrough

Tortuga IV's salon is spacious, and air conditioned with plenty of seating to port and starboard. The fishermen may purchase snacks, soft drinks and beer while underway at her snack bar. The salon exits to a wrap around deck which will accommodate the individual who wants a "no hassle" fishing experience. There are 48 separately marked fishing spots with their own rod holders. There are also two large comfortable heads aft on the wrap around deck; one is located to port, the other is to starboard. While underway passengers can relax inside the salon, go aft to the sun deck; go forward to see what adventure awaits, or climb the stairs to the upper deck for a panoramic view and to visit the Captain in the pilot house. What you catch is cleaned by the crew; and local restaurants will gladly prepare your catch for lunch or dinner. Tortuga IV usually runs two excursions per day.
