Tortoises are terrestrial, turtles are amphibious but not amphibians as they are reptiles. Sea turtles are the antithesis of amphibians, as amphibians lay soft shelled eggs in water, undergo metamorphosis into the adult form and usually live on land, and return to the water to mate, the reptilian sea turtle lays hard shelled eggs on land, remains the same configuration throughout it’s life, just increasing in size until maturity, lives in water and returns to land to mate.
All tortoises are in fact turtles — but not all turtles are tortoises.
