Our fishing trip was AMAZING!!! We spent a beautiful, half day trip on "Born Free". Ronnie was our captain, he was a seasoned captain, knowledgeable, friendly and very welcoming. The deck hand was great too...I just can't remember his name. We caught Wahoo, drank cold beer and laid out in the sun. Great experience. I would highly recommend Born Free... More

Nick at Born Free Fishing Charters made my proposal really great. The planning was easy and the whole team pitched in to make my event wonderful. It was a total surprise to my girlfriend and the Born Free Team made sure to keep everything hush until the perfect time. Their response time is amazing. I was able to pick up... More

As a Christmas gift my parents recently booked an 8-hour charter with this company and I personally felt very led on. We were told we could split the time doing some snorkeling, sightseeing and fishing. Upon arriving, the captain (who I personally felt VERY uncomfortable around as a woman) had no idea what we were talking about when we wanted... More

We trolled around in circles for over 2 hours and we were not allowed to cast our own reels. Then after 2 hours we said take us back to the marina or allow us to drop bottom. After 45 mins they finally allowed us to drop bottom and we only caught very small Strawberry grouper. $850 certainly NOT WORTH IT.... More

Second corporate trip that included a fishing trip.... Drew the short straw TWO times and ended up with the same captain we had a year and a half ago. The worst. Zero fish caught. Zero personality from the captain. Warm beer. If you're going to drive the boat in circles and not catch any fish at least be personable and... More

We had Chris and captain John, and we had one of the best days on our holiday yet! Both of them were incredibly friendly and welcoming, and even though we weren't experienced fishers, Chris was there to offer support and we picked it up straight away! We finished of our trip with turtle snorkelling and it was the perfect finish!... More

We had Chris and Captain Bowe. Both worked very hard to make sure we enjoyed our time. We are not very experienced fishers and Chris was great at handling all the dirty work. He manned all the reels and changed bait to ensure we would catch some good stuff. We ended up catching 5 tuna, couple skipjack, and couple mackerel.... More

Outstanding experience. We booked late in the day (1 hour prior to afternoon departure) and Herby and Bruno were outstanding! The guys were friendly, took care of everything, gave us all the advice we needed, and we walked away with more fish than we could eat. They cleaned the fish, and sent us home with dinner and lunch for the... More

We had a private charter with Captain Herby and Mate Bruno who were very accommodating & assisted the inexperienced 3 of us the entire time, they were so patient with us! We caught lots of fish & they made it such a fun & memorable family time!
