My husband and I were on our Honeymoon and could not wait for our trip to the Exumas! We had heard incredible things about Born Free. Unfortunately, my husband became lightheaded passed out. The crew on the boat was amazing! They kept everyone calm when we had to turn the boat around. They had medics waiting for us when we got back to the dock. The owner of the company Nick and his wife were incredibly helpful and professional. The owner Nick stayed with me until he knew my husband was better. For an owner of a company to take time out of his day to wait for a customer to make sure they were ok is incredibly selfless. I can’t wait wait to go back and actually do the island hopping. From what I’ve heard it’s awesome! Yes, my husband is ok! Thanks to the help Of the staff.

This was an amazing experience! Definitely a “must do” if you are in Nassau. We had so much fun with the pigs, sharks, and iguanas. The snorkeling was beautiful and the gorgeous island water and picturesque landscape made the boat trip between the islands so enjoyable. Winston and the rest of the crew kept things lively and made sure everyone on the boat was having a great time. If you need that Instagram worthy shot, these guys will set it up for you. They are real photo professionals. I can’t say enough good things about our experience, it was the highlight of the trip. Thank you born free!!

This was an excellent experience, combining several attractions in one trip. It starts on a powerboat and does last all day. Quite a bit of the day is actually spent on the boat whizzing between the sites. We did everything advertised starting with feeding the iguanas, swimming with the sharks, swimming with the pigs , snorkeling the Escobar plane wreck and relaxing on a sandbank in the middle of the sea. Lunch was pretty good too in a nice little cafe. The boat crew looked after us well throughout the day and kept us informed about who owned what island as we passed it. Just a couple of negatives though. Obviously this is not a cheap excursion and we thought too many people were squeezed on the boat. Much of the day is travelling between sites and the bench seats are not comfortable especially with 4 adults on each seat. Maybe 3 per seat would have given a bit more space when bouncing around for an hour at a time. The snorkeling caused a few issues too. The wreck is just below the surface and the crew warned us of really strong currents. One person cut his leg on the tail of the plane and a rope had to be thrown out to help drag people back to the boat. Perhaps some fins would be better and more helpful than giving everyone one of those polystyrene noodles. That said, it was a pretty good day with plenty to drink on board. The activities were quite short to allow for all the travelling. We would certainly recommend the trip.
