We had a group of 12 with 6 being kids aged 8-16. We had a blast. Captain Wayne kept us on the fish and Jimmy was amazing at helping all of us. Everyone caught fish even the kiddos! We would definitely go again! Together we caught 117lbs of fish! Yum!

We booked a 6 hour trip for a group of 6. The tour could fit a capacity of 13 people, which I can’t wrap my head around this because with 8 people we were getting our lines tangled. We brought 3 extra people along with our group, which made it 9 people. Jimmy was awesome. He helped everyone! He did a good job and was tipped a lot of money because he deserved it. One of my 18 year old nephews got motion sickeness and had to stay inside the cabin of the charger. Wayne, the captain, made him pay full price. I thought this was unfair and greedy since he made his money already on top of 3 extra people brought on the tour. He made more than his fair share. Our lines got tangled up just with the 8 of us! I can’t imagine if my nephew had been out there fishing. He never touched a fishing pole and was charged full price. I kind of understand why he was charged but at least cut him a break when you already made your money. On a positive note, since, I am a nice person, Captain knew where the red snapper fish were and we got plenty!. Before going, make sure anyone in your crew going doesn’t have motion sickness problems.

'Charter Boat Freedom' was AMAZING! My dad and I went out on a 10-Hour trip on 8/16/2018 and had a great time. Captain Wayne and Deckhand Matt were OUTSTANDING! Captain Wayne always knew were the fish were biting and Deckhand Matt was always spot on when having bait on the hooks or switching out rods. Jim was also great to work with when answering all questions we had about the trip. The boat was clean and very comfortable. We would defiantly recommend choosing Charter Boat Freedom if you are in or around the Panama City Beach area. Thanks again for the GREAT trip!

Captain Wayne made sure to change up locations during the trip so we caught lots of fish. My kids are not super outdoorsy and they had a blast. Matt was also super nice and helped with baiting our hooks and also just showing us how to know when a fish was tugging (it wasn't easy for some of us who don't fish often to know when to reel in). All of us caught fish- my uncle reeled in a 35 lb amberjack but had to throw it back (it was out of season). The cost after the tour for fish cleaning was very reasonable and we had a lot of fish. All in all it was a blast. I appreciated that the boat had an air conditioned cabin (my little one napped almost the whole time...) and a clean bathroom.

I used Tripadvisor and the boat's website to make the decision to schedule this charter. Previous ratings and the website organization indicated a fine boat and serious professional captain and that is exactly what I found. Captain Jim Guinn is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, professional and a pleasure to deal with. He was quick to respond to any questions after the charter was arranged and kept me informed of developing weather conditions which eventually made the trip impossible. Nevertheless, he worked with me to try to arrange another date which also got weathered out. He made an immediate full refund of my deposit. We will be back and we will use this fine service, weather permitting.
