The 165 foot steel ship is a part of the Artificial Reef Site located about five miles North of Government Cut.
The Tortuga is upright in 115 feet of water with the deck at about 90 feet. The large openings in the ship make this wreck fairly easy for the trained wreck diver to penetrate. The wheelhouse can be explored and the twin propellers are intact. There is a good amount of growth and abundant marine life. Divers report spotting Boxfish, Snapper, and Barracuda.
