“Highly recommended – Ask for Cap Herbie!! Top Angler!!”

5 of 5 stars

Got back from a week in the Bahamas a week or so ago, whilst I was out there I had a couple of full days fishing with “the born free” I have to say captain Herbie and first mate Bruno are top blokes an equally as good fishermen. The Cap certainly know where the fish are we had a great couple of days fishing with lots of little grunt, yellow tail a few strawberry grouper a hand full of sharks (biggest 250lb bull shark) we also lost an approx 18ft tiger shark (PLEASE NOTE BORN FREE NO LONGER PARTICIPATES IN SHARK FISHING!) and a massive snapper (in the pic)…… But theres plenty fish out there people and there’s no one id rather catch them with than Capitan Herbie and Bruno, they make you feel welcome from the moment you get on board to the minute you leave the docks after a full day at it!

The Boss Nick is also a very welcoming man who no doubt knows his stuff in Bahamian fishing….
All in all if your thinking of doing a deep sea Bahamian fishing trip, maximise you experience and chance of putting a slab on the boat and GO with BORN FREE!!!!!

Highly recommended Captain and Charter company to go fishing with.

A massive thanks to Nick, Herbie and Bruno for an unforgettable experience and thanks to you all for helping me catch my new personal best!!!

See you again soon!!

My wife and I booked a 4 hour Fishing/Snorkeling trip with The Born Free II. Captain Herbie and First Mate Bruno were fantastic from beginning to end. The fishing was great! They asked us what type of fishing we wanted to do. We said “whatever allows us to catch the most fish”. We lost count of the amount of fish we caught. Just awesome. When my wife started to feel a little sea sick, the crew did everything they could to pack up the gear and get back towards the dock.

“Best fishing excursion ever! If ur in Nassau, get this guy. U will catch a ton of big game fish. Very professional with huge poles, hundred pound test, bathroom & snorkeling gear on board. We had five lines in the water. Three off the back & one off each side, hook to trolling arms to keep the lines from crossing. After we caught sooo many fish we wanted to do something else. We asked them if we could snorkel, and they took us to a reef with lots of beautiful fish & coral. Six hundred to rent the boat for 5 hours. Originally the we had eight people going for this price but at the last minute two people decided they wanted to do something else. It didn’t save us any money having two less people because it was a flat rate for renting the boat.”




“Thank you Nicholas!
We had a splendid trip and look forward to using you again as the Wahoo migrate into the local waters.”

“My husband chartered a boat with Born Free for 2 mornings while in the Bahamas. Before arriving, making the reservations was pleasant. Once we got there, we confirmed with Nick and he was very accommodating in getting us food for the trip. The first day, my husband caught a 300 lb./9 ft. Marlin. He was the talk of the town. The second day, I joined him along with our 2 sons and it was a beautiful morning. Captain Herbie knew the spots to hit and Bruno (mate) was very attentive to the boys and ensuring they caught fish. In the end, they caught: 10 yellow tail snappers, a baby grouper, 2 barracudas, mackerel and a mutton snapper. Everyone was happy at the end of the trip. Boys got to fish and I got to enjoy the beautiful scenery and work on my tan. Thanks to Nick and everyone! Maybe we’ll see you next year.”

Our family are repeat customers of Born Free Fishing Charters for over the past 20 years. Captain Pinder and crew have taken us to the Exumas, Berry Islands, shark fishing numerous times, and around the Nassau reefs. Every time we are out in the ocean, we catch something different. Snapper, wahoo, yellow tail, grouper, barracuda, sail fish and of course our favorite, the catch and release of sharks. You will not be disappointed!”
