Comments Tortuga Divers(aka. East End Red Sail) is a very good dive operation. They have a nice dock that is within 100 yards of all the rooms. The boats are excellent and the crew is very experienced and nice. There are 40 or more sites that these boats can reach and all are very good. Because you are on the east end, it is not nearly as crowded. If you rent a care on the island and if you have a dive buddy with you it is easy to mix in all the shore diving spots on the West coast. I recommend Sunset House (See Cathy Church, renown underwater photog, while you are there), Eden Rock, and Sun Divers(near the turtle Farm). We have really enjoyed our time at the Morrit's and the diving is excellent. I recommend it to any diver looking for superb diving.
