Comments Chose Red Sails as they run Tortuga Divers which is at Morritt's Tortuga on the east end which is where we stayed for our second week. The first week was at a time share swap at Grand Caymanian on the west side and I decided it to be more convenient to stay with the same operator.

Quite happy with them. On the west end they run a pontoon boat which had lots of space. Small groups with 1 DM to 3 divers. However after a 40 minute tour we split up. My buddy and I had good air consumption so we stayed down until one of us got to 750psi. So we got several 1 hour+ dives. Unfortunately it was very windy at times so several times we were driven to the south shore to dive. Not really a problem ... lots of variety is good. The wind was bad enough that there were whitecaps in the North Sound and we could see waves breaking over the reef near Sting Ray alley. It did calm down one afternoon to let me do the Kittiwake. After a tour I did my own thing with a DM in tow.

On the east it was a regular boat but with the same arrangements. Again there was wind at times so then we had boat rides to the south.
