Black Tortuga

Yacht description

Black Tortuga is a luxurious, state of the art, 48ft catamaran that can accommodate up to 8 guests. There are four queen size cabins with spacious bathrooms and separate shower stalls.

Penny's personal opinion

Why book Black Tortuga – COMPETITIVE PRICING FOR EIGHT PEOPLE – Despite being one of the smaller catamarans, Black Tortuga offers great accommodation for up to 8 guests with no skimping on comfort or space at an affordable rate.

  • Thank you both for the most perfect vacation EVER! We seriously loved every second. We were so bummed when the trip got cancelled back in April due to covid, but this was so worth the wait! Elena, your cooking is incredible and it will be missed – your unbelievable birthday cake, pizza rolls, homemade bread, pasta carbonara, and all the rest… Brian, we loved your ukulele playing, snorkel tours, “scurfing” skills, and everything you did! We are also so happy we got to learn “poo head” – so many laughs!

    Black Tortuga, you guys + this beautiful place will be so missed and remembered forever! Hopefully we’ll be back! And if you ever need a sailing assistant, I’m sure John would step right up! Thank you for EVERYTHING!

    We love you guys!

  • Our time on Black Tortuga was AMAZING! Cruising around St. John and out to Flanagan Island was so beautiful. I will never forget the dives, snorkel, noodle floats, meals, fruity drinks, and sunsets. EPIC!!! Night dive watching the octopus feed was a bucket list moment. Every second was pure bliss.

  • You are an amazing team. Thanks for all the fun laughter and creating the environment for our family to bond and spend quality time together.

  • Thank you for your passion for the sea and these beautiful islands. I appreciate the extra care and effort in making what were already amazing meals, edible for me with all of my allergies. First trip ever that food was a highlight of the vacation and I felt included when it was time to eat. Casper and I enjoyed our trip immensely. Thank you!

    You guys are soooo AMAZING! this trip will forever be so memorable because you made it so great and so fun for me and my family! Brian you are so much fun and so cool teaching us new things and about the history of the islands was one of my favorites. We really enjoyed you hanging out with us and keeping us busy and filling up our days with fun. Elena, your cooking was incredible and so beautiful. I always looked forward to our meals and snacks :). I loved your passion for everything and the ocean and life itself! I love learning new things from you and everything you say sounds so amazing about places and things you have done! You both are incredible and I’m so thankful for this trip and getting to meet you. Don’t change anything. I loved it all.

  • Thank you for the trip of a lifetime! I love your passion and knowledge of the sea. Having you two as company was absolutely wonderful. Thank you for being so patient and kind.

  • The need to taste life is etched in our brains. It is on trips like these where the flavors come alive. We are all here to experience, to touch, to feel, to listen, to love. All of these sensations lead to feeling. We were all so lucky to feel and experience these these past 7 days – a paradise which has thankfully left indelible memories for the entire clan. We are grateful for your excellent guide services and stellar hospitality.

  • This was one of the best weeks of our entire life! From the magnificent food and insane feats that Elena pulled off meal after meal to the non-stop adventures Captain Brian engineered. We so appreciate all the love, laughter and adventure. Thank you for including us in one of the most magical moments of our lives.

    Witnessing your engagement and New Years Eve was legendary! Thanks for becoming friends! We wish you nothing but love and adventure and we cannot wait to return for another epic trip on the Black Tortuga.

    Happy Everything!

    The experience offered in writing seemed too good to be true. In reality, the trip was everything we expected and more. My opinion is that Mr Christiansen does excellent work under all conditions.

    Elena shares her passion for the ocean, diving and fine cuisine. She is incredibly patient and lots of fun to be around.
