We had an overall good day on the water. About 5 fish in the boat, mostly small snapper. However, towards the end of our trip we were told we were heading to fish another reef. Only to find out we were heading into the harbor. They left the lines in the water making us think we were fishing, but we... More

Hi Bret, Thank you for your review. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your trip with us. Four hours does go very quickly when you are having fun out on the water. Unfortunately, we wouldn't be able to fit two charters in a day if we didn't stick to our four hour half day trips. We do appreciate... More

Went on a half day fishing trip. Capt John was great and the deck hand was Tyson and did a great job as well. Only caught 3 barracuda, but that was not the boat's fault, just the activity level. They provide drinks and food for the trip as well. I would go again!

Thank you for your review! Sounds like you had a great day on "Sitting Pretty". We do not typically provide any food or drinks other than bottled water. Sounds like you had a charter on a customer appreciation day! So glad you enjoyed. More

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

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
