You need a Tortoise trap to be able to catch Tortles to the west of Whale's Maw.

Edit: Speak to the Tortoise hunter, Reggie, on Waiko

Update about the Chime hunting technique.

I caught 51 Tortle's in ten minutes, and each tortle gives 575.5 Hunter EXP and each Shell gives 4 Chimes each. If you craft these into Tortle shell bowls (4 clippings) you can sell them for 10 coins each.

So, in an hour you can earn:
  • 176K Hunter EXP
  • 720 Chimes

Ornate tortles are 3x the XP, which is very nice for skillers :p Unfortunately they last only about 30 minutes. Same number of chimes from them

Thank you - I couldn't even figure out how to start - I followed the blinking arrow and it took me to Port Sarim to where the npc was last week.

A fourth bottle has been found on Aminishi. You need to wear a Monkeyspeak amulet or a Cramulet in order to see it and head to the Eastern shores of Aminishi.

Unfortunately not, but I did wiki to see what you were talking about. Wiki says that they're a guarantee spawn until you kill the required amount of them for the miniquest \:D/.
