About the Property

Luxury 42' Catamaran Yacht charter with captain & crew!

Tortuga Sailing Adventures offers yacht accommodations, complete with captain and crew as well as choice sailing adventures.

ABOUT US: We are a 5-star rated luxury yacht charter that has been operating in the lower Florida Keys since 2013. Home ported at Stock Island Marina Village, our private, customized, all-inclusive "Sail, Play, Feast and Relax" adventure getaways have proved to be a perfect fit many visitors to Key West. Sailing destinations include incredible coral reefs, sandbars and remote islands such as Marquesas Key and the Dry Tortugas National Park. Charters range from 4 hours to multiple days. There are some short term opportunities to remain dockside, however our goal is to get off the dock with our guests. While at sea with the crew, consider the yacht your floating oasis with toys aplenty. Our guests are encouraged to detune, relax and have fun. A plethora of activities (or inactivity) options can satiate even the most active individuals and can include; sailing, free diving, snorkeling, dolphin, turtle and bird watching, underwater photography & videography, sea-kayaking, stand up paddle board, lobster hunting, island exploration, trolling for big fish, dinghy rides to uninhabited islands, historical Fort Jefferson tour and of course tan maintenance on deck.

ABOUT THE YACHT: S/V Tortuga is a pristine 42’ blue water sailing Manta catamaran decked out with all the latest equipment, amenities and toys. The entire vessel is designed for full-time, long term living aboard and comes equipped with all the comforts of home including air conditioning, hot and cold running fresh water showers plus so much more. S/V Tortuga is USCG documented vessel and is fully insured as a charter and operated by an experienced, fully licensed captain and crew.

YOUR QUARTERS:
Portside ~ Known as the "Owner's Quarters" is the favorite for most guests. It makes up the entire hull. The aft sleeping cabin touts an amazingly comfortable queen sized nest filled with a cooling gel mattress, down pillows and fresh cottons bedding, while the adjoining forward area dons a private, modern head (bath) with a super large hot/cold freshwater shower. Everything you need for shipboard comfort is in place. This space is utilized when we have a max of 2 guests aboard.  

Starboard ~The "Guest Quarters" is made up for larger groups and consists of 1 private queen sleeping cabin (also with a gel mattress) and 1 full sleeping cabin (sleeping space narrows to twin at the bow) with a shared head. The head is a single person shower. Note that the head and shower is placed in between the two sleeping berths.  Both cabins and head have locking privacy doors.  Guests in forward berth will pass through the head to exit hull via stairs to salon and galley. The Starboard side is utilized when we have 3 to 4 Guests.  4 guests is do-able but does makes for cozy quarters.

WHILE DOCKED AT MARINA: You’ll have access to numerous amenities supplied by the marina as well as us. Bikes, free wi-fi & scheduled shuttles to downtown Key West, laundry machines, bath houses, captain’s lounge access are all available. Also, the Shrimp Road Bar & Grill is located right on the marina property.

RATES: Since we are a yacht charter, our RATES VARY BASED ON GUEST COUNT AND HOURS AT SEA!! Custom proposals for overnight "At Sea" adventures are promptly provided when requested.The Tortuga Crew will expect a minimum 3 hour day charter while aboard S/V Tortuga dockside. All VRBO reservations are guaranteed when there is a confirmed Tortuga Sailing Adventure charter reservation.

Customized & Proposed Charters ~ You can anticipate that our totally private & all-inclusive, crewed sailing yacht charter will cost approximately $700 per each 24 hour per person. The per person rate is reduced with multiple guests. Dockside overnight rates are lower but guest will be required to select at least a 4 hour minimum excursion or select just 1 night for the Bed, Breakfast & Sail to stay aboard overnight dockside. Our website shows a variety of vacation packages and day time excursions. Simply google "Tortuga Sailing Adventures, Key West" to see all the options offered.

Car: Recommended

Stock Island Marina Village is a reminder of a bygone age of tropical frontier adventure, a destination to relax and rediscover the natural world, an authentic retreat into the Key West Experience.

Some guests call it the “Sportfishing Capital of the World.” Some call it a creative arts colony. Positioned just a few miles between America’s only living coral reef and the national treasure that is the architecture of Old Town Key West, the rustic marina village atmosphere includes a rum distillery, community gardens, nature trails, kayak tours, paddle-board yoga, and a collection of Key West characters.

It’s a relaxed atmosphere of Old Key West, just beyond the noise and crowds of world famous Duval Street. Our newly developed marina reflects an historic charm with an eye toward resource conservation, and community support for our artists, craftsmen, and working waterfront.
