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.
