Absolutely stunning boat with knowledgeable Captain and Crew. Don’t try and save a few bucks and cut clrners with one of the cheaper ones, this experience is worth the premium. Two big thumbs up

we booked a Fate Sailing Tour for my husbands 60th Birthday. He was so surprised. It was a fantastic time. Dustin was very professional and kind. We will definitely make this an annual event.

We chartered Kismet with 10 women for a bachelorette party recently and had a total blast. Both our captain and first mate were helpful and professional and made sure we had a great time. Highly recommend.
