Dustin and Evan were great Sailors and equally knowledgeable tour guides. We really felt like they know the water and the city and we'd definitely do a charter with them. Can't recommend them enough!

Dustin and Evan were terrific as crew. The weather and wind they served us was idyllic-overall a wonderful event. We also brought great food onboard from salty's restaurant located in front of the Fate location.

From the booking to the actual harbor tour, Captain Dustin and his team put the icing on the cake of our Board of Trustees Retreat on 4/14/18 by offering us an A-rated experience! KUDOS to the team all around...everything was perfect.

Evan and Glenn gave us a great tour of the harbor on the beautiful Fate. They showed us points of interest and taught us things we did not know.

The Coast Guard restricts the vessel to 8 people. They would need to sail without the 1st Mate.
