Meet the Lake Travis Yacht Crew


Fathom Yacht Charters is dedicated to getting you out on the water to embrace the proven neuroscience of Blue Mind. Perfect for anyone facing disengagement or burnout from the typical daily pressures of a high tech, always connected life – both at work and at home – our Lake Travis Yacht excursions include a wide array of activities and approaches to help you achieve balance and happiness. 

The team’s primary goals are to help guests realize the impacts of water on mental, emotional, spiritual and physical well-being, to help people gain a new understanding of how mindfulness can affect every area of life, and to create a simple personal plan to incorporate wellness and water into daily routines and life. 

Our charters can be a great experience for friends, groups, or even corporate training to reconnect with themselves and discover a new or renewed appreciation for themselves and the water.

Completely customizable, let the Fathom Wellness team show you the water and help you facilitate your own Blue Mind experience! 

“All of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea — whether it is to sail or to watch it — we are going back from whence we came.”

– John F. Kennedy


Unplug, Let go & Hit the water
