Asked my wife what she wanted for her birthday. "I don't need anything." Was the reply. After 23 years of marriage I knew better. In a rare stroke of genius I thought I'd buy her an experience instead of a bauble, and I found this outfit online. Trip advisor rating sealed the deal for me! And Dustin and Evan really... More

My husband and I, along with another couple enjoyed a relaxing 3hr cruise around the Bay. Our friends happened to have a good deal of experience with sailing - having owned and sailed their own boats. We knew when they felt comforable with the staff- we would too. Dustin and Evan were awesome! Knowledgeable- not only about sailing but of... More

Back for more! Thanks to Evan and Dustin we had a fantastic sail on race night in Charleston harbor, once again our whole family had a wonderful sail with plenty of good advice and very informative on sailing in the area. Still one of the best ways to see and learn about Charleston is aboard "Fate", we'll be back again.

First of all I would like to thank Dustin and Evan for making all this come together. My proposal went flawless thanks to them. I found the Fate online and new that was where I wanted to propose. I booked my charter months in advance and started to e-mail him question after question. Dustin was always quick to respond, helping... More

We were looking for an afternoon activity to share with our teenage daughters (14 & 16 yrs. old) after getting married in Charleston. This was a great choice! Sailing out into the harbor was relaxing and relatively cool given the early summer heat wave in Charleston. It was interesting to see Historic Charleston, Fort Sumter, USS Yorktown, and Cooper River... More

My husband surprised me with a private charter on the Fate, and it was the highlight of our honeymoon! You can't beat the views from the water and the sunset is just gorgeous. Dustin and Evan were not only knowledgable about Charleston and its history, but they were great company for our sail. This is an incredibly fun and unique... More

Captain Dustin and Quent worked their magic on our sunset anniversary cruise! They were the best tour guides of Charleston waterfront history mixed with a beautiful sunset, wine, a catered dinner and great conversation! Would highly recommend the crew of Fate if you want to see Charleston from the vantage point of the water - it will be memorable and... More
