It has a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots and is rigged with navigational electronics, including a GPS, a VHF radio, and a fish finder. The vessel is wheelchair accessible and is equipped with a live bait tank and an ice-box to keep the fish fresh during the day.

Freebird Charters can customize a trip to meet any angler’s wishes. From a casual trip with the family for some tasty grouper to an expedition for a fly rod record Kingfish - a light-tackle charter is sure to suit your needs.

You will be targeting Cobia, Red Snapper, Mahi Mahi, Redfish, Sheepshead, Spotted Seatrout, King Mackerel, African Pompano, Bluefish, and who knows what else!

A trip with Freebird Charters comes inclusive with all the necessary equipment to make a great catch possible. You will be provided with rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait, as well as the fishing licenses for you and your group. If you decide to keep the catch, it will be cleaned and filleted for you at the end of the trip, ready for a ride home. You can feel free to bring your own drinks and snacks with you on board the vessel.

Big fish, comfortable boat, professional guide - it’s all here and it’s all fun!

Fishing booker did not notify captain until 4:30am on date of trip. I made the reservation 2 weeks in advance. When we called the captain from the dock he said he had a full boat and could not take us. I will never use fishing booker again. Now we will see how long it will take to get my $90.00 back.
