Whether you’re chasing the next trophy for your record book or you want to show your family a relaxing time, Born Free has a trip for you!

For anglers looking to do a little more snorkeling, the crew can take you to gorgeous coral reefs on specialized Fish & Snorkel trips.

Remember to pack a cooler as the crew will clean and fillet your hard-fought catch after the trip, free of charge. Kids of all ages are welcome on board but please bring your own vest if you’re bringing infants.
