Comments
The boats have a camera table and a dedicated 50 gallon freshwater camera
tank. They crew is very good about helping those with camera and they are
patient during guided tours. The shore facility offers rinse showers and
lockers to store gear.

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.
