Tyler and Erika lived in the same dorm freshman year of college at East Carolina University. Erika saw Tyler and was instantly smitten but he was too busy with his head underwater to notice. Erika decided to learn to scuba dive and Tyler soon noticed her bubbles! They spent four years diving together and nurturing a friendship that eventually turned to love. Tyler and Erika both graduated with business degrees and landed jobs in the corporate world; Erika as a logistics manager for retail giant Target, and Tyler as a production manager with Aramark Uniform Services.

    Reviews from our Carefree Clients

    A family that we booked aboard 45' Catamaran Free Ingwe for New Years 2015/2016 said:


    Thank you for your note and I'm happy to jot down a few thoughts.

    Overall we had a simply superb vacation. Free Ingwe was ideal for our family. The boat was well maintained and it was clear that Greg showed a real sense of pride and accountability for the upkeep of the boat. Both Greg and Michelle could not have been a friendlier, more professional and hospitable crew. Food was thoughtful and appropriately tailored to meet our needs (including accommodating my relatively picky son). We would highly recommend Free Ingwe and the crew in particular for anyone looking to enjoy a charter. I also appreciated dealing with Carefree Yacht Charters. It was straightforward and simple to charter the yacht, Lynne was very helpful and helped answer all the questions we had as first time charters.
