Did half day charter for a group of 8. These guys took us to the prime snorkeling locations where we saw a variety and swarms of tropical fish, sea turtles and stingrays. The captain was super entertaining and shared his marine and island knowledge with us when we asked many questions! BYOB, snorkeling gear provided. Our group had an amazing... More

Captain Herby and first mate Chris were attentive , friendly ,knowledgable and best of all we caught lots of fish. We also were happy we went way out instead of just trolling in front of atlantis like previous tours. Thank you will be back

Went out today for fishing. The seas were very rough and fishing was hard but still caught enough to be satisfied. Fish were quality size with nice fights getting them in. I have chartered fishing boats many times, it all comes down to the deckhand having a great personality and work ethic. Mitchell was ours today and he never stopped... More

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
