We've been coming to Charleston for 14 years and before that lived here for three years. I have to say this was the most relaxing and enjoyable experiences we've ever had. We will definitely make this a must do for for all future trips. Great Capt and crew. You're missing out if you don't do this.

I purchased a 3-hour morning sail as a birthday gift. The directions provided to reach the boat were very clear and we found "Fate" easily once we arrived at the marina. The pictures do not do this magnificent vessel justice - it is just breathtaking. Very spacious (great for overnight sailing) and exceptionally clean. We were greeted immediately by First... More

Definitely a highlight of our family vacation to Charleston. The Fate was beautiful and immaculate and Dustin & Evan were extremely knowledgable about the area. Saw lots of dolphins. Would highly recommend!

The highlight of our girls weekend in Charleston. Dustin and Quent took amazing care of us. We ordered dinner from the recommended caterer Caviar and Bananas. It was the perfect evening and highly recommended! We even saw a few bonus Dolphins!

While searching the internet for a way to propose to my girlfriend I stumbled upon Fate. I knew I had found the perfect idea and booked the 3 hour sunset cruise around the beautiful charelston harbor. I am a Charleston native and am used to its beauty but being on Fate surrounded by awesome/knowledgeable crew Dustin and Evan made it... More

We were aboard the Fate as part of a bachelorette weekend in Charleston and our three hour charter was absolutely amazing. Dustin and Evan were wonderful hosts, very accommodating and extremely knowledgeable about the area. We were able to sail for a few hours and then anchor out in the harbor to swim. This charter company is a must if... More

My husband and I celebrated my birthday on their sunset cruise. The crew was great, knowledgeable about the area, and very engaging. The views were stunning and the seas were easy going. I would definitely recommend the cruise and the company.
