No words can describe how incredible our sail with Capt. Ryan & Evan was. They were a friendly, informative, and very experienced crew. We found the Fate to be an immaculate, spacious, and overall outstanding yacht. This will be a memory that we will never forget, and this would be one of the main reasons to visit the beautiful city... More

Dustin & Evan were lovely, fun & a joy to be around. They also had very good taste in music. The whole trip from start to finish was incredible me, good... More

We take a road trip every year after Christmas with our 6 teenage grandchildren. It's always a surprise and this was a big surprise for them. This was our 6th trip and they rated it 2nd to NYC. It was a perfect day. Captain Dustin and First Mate Evan were great. They made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. They... More

Captain Dustin and First Mate Evan were really great. It was Christmas Eve and they still decided to accept our booking even though it was quite last minute. Furthermore, we were lost that day and ended up 30 minutes late. Yet, they stayed there and Evan even went around looking for us. Both of them were knowledgeable about the surroundings... More

Dustin and Evan are absolutely amazing. They really know how to create a wonderful sailing adventure around the Charleston harbor. It helped that the weather was 80 degrees and sunny just two days after Christmas :) The wine selection aboard Fate is so delicious we couldn't stop at one bottle. I got to wear a captain's hat while manning the... More

The staff was phenomenal and made this excursion the highlight of our Thanksgiving. If enjoying sailing, these guys provide the best experience on the bay. We look forward to another adventure with them here in the future.

As newlyweds we wanted to experience the BEST of Charleston and really experience the character of this iconic city. The water is a key part of Charleston's charm and history and our private sailboat charter was by far our favorite activity. Dustin and Evan were professional but relaxed hosts who immediately set out to win us over to the sailing... More

Bright sun, fresh breezes were completely relaxing!! Crew of Ryan and Evan made the trip so enjoyable. Both were very eager to share information about the Charleston Harbor. Of all of the activities ,this sail was our favorite. We will try to do a sunset cruise on our next visit in the spring. Can't recommend it highly enough!!!!

Skipper Dustin Ryan and Crewman Evan Carroll made us feel right at home and gave us a delightful tour of the harbor. They are very knowledgeable about Charleston history and what's happening in Charleston today. The boat is beautiful and we wished the sail lasted longer!!! Saw lots of dolphins, too!
