Tortuga, also known as Isla Tortuga, is a location in the Pirates of the Caribbean series. Tortuga became a major center for Piracy in the 17th century. The island appeared to be free of governing reach and was generally a lawless place, and one of the only places a pirate considered to be "free" with the expansion of the East India Trading Company.
Tortuga was located in the North American continent, somewhere in the Caribbean Sea. Exclusively, the real life Tortuga was located north of mainland Haiti.
