After a whirlwind of activity the day prior to our sail, we were all rather weary when we set sail. This trip was exactly what the doctor ordered. Pleasant, relaxing, and quite enjoyable, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Dustin and Evan were attentive but not invasive, professional but laid back and intuitive in knowing how to relate... More

We took the sunset cruise with Dustin and Evan and enjoyed every second of it. They were prepared to pamper us, but when they saw that we didn't need pampering, they adjusted immediately and provided an educational and relaxing tour around the harbor. If we're ever back in Charleston, we'll certainly do this again.

We spent five days in Charleston, but the sailing charter with Captain Dustin and First Mate Evan was the one experience we truly felt was invaluable. Charleston Sailing Charters receives our highest recommendation, as well as our genuine hope that others will take advantage of the beautiful experience. The price is a bargain for the extraordinary service. Whether you've sailed... More

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

My husband booked this for Valentine's weekend with a couple of other couples, the weather was gorgeous & sunny on this crisp cold day so we wrapped up warm. 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.
