Sail year round on Charleston’s finest, private, and romantic 50ft luxury yacht, "Fate". Rated by Forbes as one of the top romantic things to do in Charleston! Enjoy the sights of this beautiful city from historical landmarks to a wide variety of wildlife as you relax and feel the ocean breeze, all while your professional captain and mate take care of everything else. Available for hourly, daily and overnight adventures. Most charters are 3-4 hours in length and circle the entire Charleston Harbor. Gourmet Catering options are available and you are welcome to bring your favorite beverages along for the ride. Ask about our sunset sail and overnight at the dock for two special. Longer overnight trips for two are available by request. Professional photography is available.

Dustin is so accommodating and knowledgeable. I've been on two Fate sailing trips thus far and both were amazing! I would definitely recommend booking a trip and soaking in all that beautiful Charleston has to offer!

My boyfriend surprised me with a sunset sail during the week. I had been wanting to do one ever since we moved to Charleston in May. We brought our own refreshments, but catered with one of the restaurants Captain Dustin recommended. You can purchase different local wines on the boat. Captain Dustin and his first mate Chip, were wonderful. They... More

My boyfriend surprised me with a sunset cruise proposal on Fate. Dustin and Evan were so friendly, professional, knowledgeable and funny! I definitely recommend having Dustin take your photos. He did an incredible job and the pictures are something we will always cherish. The whole experience was amazing!

Captain Dustin took my girlfriends on Fate for the BEST Monday we have ever had. We arrived a little before 11:30 to the most beautiful Beneteau with Dustin waiting to help us load on all our food and drinks for lunch. Fate is a STUNNING yacht and the entire experience is made even better with the Captain. We sailed all... More

Amazing sail! Third year in a row we do a girls sail and are NEVER let down. We sailed under the bridge and dropped anchor to swim. Dustin knows a ton about the harbor and is very professional. AMAZING service! Can't wait to go again.

I married my best friend on Fate in the midst of a hurricane. Weather reports advised of rain and winds...but I felt sure it would all work out. Fate, destiny...it was all meant to be. Little did I know how magnificent this adventure would turn out. Capt. Dustin and 1st mate Evan greeted us with warm welcoming smiles and made... More

I didn't really know what to expect going in as I had never been on a sailboat... let me tell you--- it was so perfectly relaxing, enjoyable, and romantic!

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.
