Here at Fathom, we know you’ve been waiting to kick your feet up and let the Captain take you around the awe-inspiring sights of Lake Travis – and if you haven’t, then we recommend you take a dip in the refreshing central-Texas waters to clear your head.

There are plenty of sights to see and events to enjoy with our private boat charters. So whether you’re looking to enjoy a glass of champagne and watch the sunset or you’re looking for an action-packed adventure with swimming and paddling, we have the perfect private boat trips for you!

Sounds like a dream, right? Now, we’re sure you have a bundle of questions to ask your Captain so you can set sail as soon as possible, and we’re more than happy to take any queries you may have. To save you some planning, we’ve compiled a list of questions to ask your Captain before you book a private boat charter:

What Does a Private Boat Charter on Lake Travis Offer?

Lake Travis is the largest of the Highland Lakes in Texas and will be sure to offer you the stunning views that you could only think of in your dreams! Picture crystal blue waters with fantastic trees that surround the coast and a cool breeze blowing in the air while you sip on your favorite beverage.

What’s that sound? It’s certainly not the yapping of random tourists and visitors since this charter is completely private. A private boat charter means that you get to have Lake Travis all to yourself – just you, your loved ones, and your trusty Captain and crew! Who couldn’t resist that?

What Excursion or Trip is Best for Me?

We offer four different packages for trips and excursions that are sure to suit your tastes. Our most relaxed trip is our 2.5-hour sunset cruise tour. This casual adventure will have you watching the sunset in style over the wonderful views of Lake Travis – and yes, a bottle of complimentary champagne is included! This package is just the ticket for anyone looking to rest their head and have the Captain take them on a quiet cruise at dusk.

For anyone searching for a bit more adventure in their private charter, we also offer a four-hour half-day charter which will see you swimming, paddling, and exploring the amazing scenery that Lake Travis has to offer. You can even choose a curated event theme for the trip to give it that extra special touch it needs. Looking for a Mardi Gras theme with feathers, masks, and beads? Fathom has you covered. How about a trip with a Latin flare? We’ve got you covered there, too!

If your knees aren’t built for the paddle board, we also offer four-hour tours geared toward relaxation. Indeed, our four-hour day spa tour will take you on an all-inclusive rejuvenating journey in which you can do yoga, meditate, sunbathe, and swim. We’ll even throw in some massages, manicures, and of course some delicious mimosas to make your decision that much easier.

Finally, if it’s self-care and growth you’re after, our blue mind experience is the perfect experience for team building, mindfulness, and stress reduction. We told you we weren’t lying when we said there’s something for everybody!

What Can I Expect from the Private Boat?

Our boat is a 2017 Monterey Model 360SC Sport Yacht model. That might sound like a load of jargon to you, but it really means that it’s a jolly good boat! Stacking in at 38-foot long, you’ll have plenty of space to relax, stretch out, and adventure while your Captain takes you on the journey of a lifetime. 

The boat’s interior, meanwhile, has plush modern seating and is sure to put you in a blue state of mind. We’ve even gone through the effort of sourcing artwork for the boat, which is all made by local Austin artists. So just imagine sipping on your second glass of champagne while your Captain and crew work tirelessly behind the scenes. Even more, to keep you cool, the yacht has both water misters and 3 AC systems!

We’ve also made sure the boat is stacked with healthy foods, fresh beverages, and tasty appetizers so you won’t go hungry on your trip. But, of course, the best part about it is that you have it all to yourself!

Who Can I Bring With Me on My Private Boat Cruise?

Our spa day and sunset cruise offerings are a fantastic option for friends and couples to wind down and relax, and we’ll be sure to accommodate as best we can. Not much of a people person? You can even come alone on any of our excursions and enjoy the pleasures of Lake Travis all by yourself.

On top of that, our blue mind experience is a fantastic team-building exercise for companies and agencies, meaning the possibilities are truly endless for who you want to bring on your private boat charter.
