Born Free Charters – Free Spirit

Join Born Free Fishing for a memorable angling adventure on the pristine waters of the Bahamas archipelago! Let the knowledgeable and friendly crew take you to the most productive fishing spots around Nassau and put you on some colorful and fun-to-catch fish.

Take your pick between half day and full day trips, depending on what species you’d like to target and how much time you want to spend on the waves. If you choose the fish-and-snorkel combo, you’ll have all the necessary equipment on board, and plenty of time to go after the likes of Barracuda, Mackerel, and similar species.

Full day trips last 8 hours and will put you on the hot trail of hard-fighting Billfish like Sailfish and Marlin, not to mention Goliath Grouper, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi. You’ll use reliable Penn rods and reels to get your catch into the boat, and the first mate will be there to help you every step of the way. If you’re happy with his services, tips are the best way to show your gratitude.

You’ll be fishing out of the “Free Spirit” – a 34’ Venture center console outfitted with twin 300 HP Suzuki engines. Up to 8 people can fit comfortably on board and take turns in fishing. The boat is well-equipped for different types of fishing, including outriggers, quality navigational electronics, and a private toilet.

Whatever you catch and decide to keep, the crew will clean and fillet for your convenience. All you have to do is bring your favorite people with you, stock up on drinks, food, and sunscreen.

Head out with Born Free Fishing and enjoy the top-notch fishing that the Bahamas has to offer!

Born Free Charters is operated by Captains Philip and Captain Nicholas Pinder. Capt. Philip was the deep-sea fishing charter pioneer in Paradise Island in the Bahamas in 1978. He learned everything he knows about deep-sea fishing from his godfather Master Captain Milton Pearce of Nassau, and has since built a premier charter fishing business in the area. He believes in the old-fashioned way of doing business – giving each individual charter guest special treatment. This is why he has had returning customers for over 20 years. His nephew, Capt. Nicholas, joined the team in 2013 to lead the business and continue on with the same customer service oriented business that was built by his uncle.
