Captain Dustin and Mate Evan know Charleston's water very well. They have through knowledge of the hot spots to go and they both went an extra mile to make sailing experience more joyful and adventurous. Dustin is a great photographer and he is equipped with a very nice camera. I hired him to take pics while we were sailing and... More

Not only a beautiful cruise but "mast"erful entertainment by Paul and great drinks made by Mary Joan. I highly recommend them for a smooth sail with lots of laughter and regalia. From start to finish every detail of Charleston Harbor and history was explained by the seaworthy Paul. Bon Voyage!

I would highly recommend experiencing a sail charter aboard the "Fate"! The entire experience was flawless, from my initial booking and contact with Capt. Dustin Ryan, to the sail itself...everything was handled with the utmost professionalism and courtesy. Upon arrival the Captain and First Mate Evan made us feel comfortable and at home from the moment we stepped on board.... More

I booked the fate about 6 weeks ahead. Capt. Dustin has been in contact with me throughout the process as it got closer to the date. The website recommended Caviars and Bananas for the catering meal so i picked them. I had the luxury of getting the only sunset sail for Valentine's to make that day memorable for me and... More

My girlfriend and I decided to embark on the evening charter aboard the Fate in Mid-February. Even though it was one of the coldest days of the year, each of us left feeling that the charter was worth every penny. Both crew members were extraordinary attentive yet allowed for private moments. Although, we found it to be more fun to... More

I recently went on a 3 hr sunset harbor sail with Captain Dustin and First Mate Evan with a group of four and had an amazing experience. The ship is in amazing condition, service was impeccable, and harbor insights were informative. While the wind didn't fully cooperate, the experience was an amazing one and a highlight of a five day... More

Dustin and Evan made the grueling task of executing a perfect proposal seem effortless. Guys, you know what i'm talking about ;). From the moment we walked up to boat, they were both extremely welcoming and professional. Dustin and Evan had a beautiful display of champagne and sushi, delivered from Caviar and Bananas. They even allowed my now fiance and... More
