Captain Dustin and mate Angela showed our family of seven around Charleston Harbor for a wonderful two hour cruise out past Fort Sumter and Patriot Point. Catering from Caviar & Bananas was delicious. Very enjoyable and highly recommended.

We arrived in Charleston and went directly to the City Marina for a sunset cruise on Fate, a beautiful, 50ft sailboat. It was a wonderful way to orient us to the city and its environs and set-the-table for the rest of our time in Charleston. Captain Glenn and First Mate Evan were knowledgeable and engaging. The vessel is kept in... More

Everything went above and beyond my expectations. I am not too familiar with Sail Boat's or Yachts, So i was a little nervous how my party of 6 would fit. But the Fate is HUGE and the layout was awesome for everyone in our party. They have an awesome seating area in the back, and sitting up front is a... More

We wanted to show our colleagues from Germany and Canada what Charleston is really about! We have been on the sister sailboat, Fate, many times and just adore Captain Dustin and Evan but we had a larger group so we booked Kismet for a 3 hour sunset tour as we knew we could not go wrong with this great company!...

I chose this trip to propose to my now fiancé and Dustin and his crew ensured everything came together perfectly. The whole cruise went great.

Boat was clean & well kept. Crew was friendly and offered interesting commentary on the history of Charleston and the surrounding area. Was a great way to spend a beautiful afternoon. Understand why it's a not spot for proposals on sunset sails!

All of the trip advisor reviews were so high that I expected a great experience. Even the people who were exiting the boat from the trip before ours told us it was great. The boat was exquisite. The sky was beautiful. The wind and the sea were perfect. My first yacht race was incredible fun. All of this I expected.... More

We chartered the Kismet with Charleston Sailing Private Day Charters to take us around during the parade of sail for the tall ships festival in May 2017. The crew were amazing to work with -- taking us all around the harbor so we could get good photos of all of the different ships in the parade. They suggested different places... More

Doing a private charter is a luxury, but there is no better way to spend some time on the water. This 50-foot beauty named Fate has all of the amenities and the owner/hosts could not have been more gracious. They offer a meal service, but we just took some beer and snacks for our 3-hour tour (nothing like Gilligan's Island).There... More
