Meet THE Lake Travis Yacht Crew

LAKE TRAVIS – AUSTIN, TX

Fathom Yacht Charters is dedicated to getting you out on the water to experience the most amazing private, curated, safe excursions on Lake Travis. From pickup to saying goodbyes, your outing will delight you and your guests.

Celebrate your special day; such as a romantic sunset cruise, an important occasion, sightseeing tour, spa day, proposal, entertaining guests or your team.

We explore beautiful, uncrowded areas of Lake Travis that no other charter company goes. Enjoy delicious, freshly prepared appetizers, meals and infused beverages, all included in your outing.

And of course, we have heat, AC and even water misters to keep guests cool.

Fathom Freedom and her crew are licensed to US Coast Guard rigid operating standards and she is piloted by a Master Captain. Our vessel is absolutely the newest, most modern, luxurious and well-appointed charter vessel on Lake Travis. We utilize radar, sonar, an onboard weather station, along with many years of experience to keep you and your guests safe.

 

“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
