THIS WAS THE BEST MONEY I SPENT ALL WEEKEND IN CHARLESTON! At first, I have to admit....when my sister told me we were going on a sunset sail in December my immediate response was: "how much is this going to cost and what does this include?" Well, I would've paid WAY more after experiencing the incredible Charleston Sailing Charters. I... More

What a perfect way to kick off a fun bachelorette weekend in Charleston! Dustin and Evan were great hosts on their beautiful yacht. They provided white glove service- from pouring us our beverages to taking countless photos. Dustin even filmed a mannequin challenge video for our group :). We can't wait to return to Charleston and go on another charter... More

Wow. What a wonderful experience. We had two couples celebrating anniversaries and couldn't imagine a better afternoon. The sunset cruise was truly the highlight of of our Charleston trip. Captain Dustin is such a great host! Just book it - you won't regret it! This was our view at sunset!

My husband and I visited Charleston for a long weekend with another couple in September, and our sunset sail on Fate was the pinnacle of our trip. Captain Ryan and First Mate Evan were fun, friendly, and knowledgeable. Their easygoing demeanors made us all fast friends and eased the worries for those in our group who had never been sailing!...

I booked the sailboat as a surprise for my boyfriend for his birthday. He loves sailboats and I knew this would be right up his alley. However, Dustin went past our expectations. We had cool weather, but it didn't matter. We were bundled up and Dustin had blankets for us to snuggle up in, if we needed it. His experience... More

We came down to Charleston with two other couples to enjoy a long weekend. We took the 3-hour sunset cruise. Despite it being overcast, we were still able to get some pictures of the sunset. Captain Dustin and his first mate made for an enjoyable afternoon. Dustin was very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of Charleston. I would highly... More

My husband and I booked a 3 hour sunset sail on The Fate with Captain Dustin and First Mate Evan. To stay it was awesome is an understatement... It was so beautiful and the guys are so much fun. They'll hangout and talk with you like they're old friends of yours. They'll take pictures for you or you can even... More

This was our first sailboat experience and Captain Dustin made out experience a fantastic one and an afternoon we will never forget. The crew, including Dustin, was extremely friendly and handled the three hour sail with winds up to 30 knots like true professionals. The boat itself was gorgeous - just can't say enough. It's hard to imagine anyone finding... More
