Its all about the good vibes and fun times on the water! I suspect since you are searching for a boat, we likely have a common interest. We are all searching for something that will be fun and make us feel good. New experiences are the key to creating lasting memories, and that is why we started Fins Charters… To share the best places on the lake, in a First Class boat, with an approachable, knowledgable genuine guide to serve as your Captain of Fun. Whether you choose to explore a full or half day on the lake, its fun sandbars for swimming, socializing, playing games or to take in a beautiful sunset cruise through the Venice like canals of lake front homes in the LBJ Apple Rock community, we've got you covered, and look forward to meeting you! --- About the Captain I have been boating for over 30 years and on Lake LBJ since 2013. My wife Pamela and I own a home at Horseshoe Bay and have 3 daughters so we know the best places to go on the Lake for photos, sandbar fun, swimming and the coolest lake home canal tours. As a captain and father, safety on the water is a top concern so let me do all of the work and keep watch while you relax and enjoy free of worries. I have served as an executive and owner in golf management for over 25 years and enjoy delivering fun entertaining experiences and look forward to serving as your Ambassador to Lake LBJ ---- About the Boat The Yamaha 212X boat is awesome... adults and kids love it for its good looks, safety (its a jet boat so no dangerous propellers) and comfort. Yamaha has the very best swim platforms low to the water so getting in and out of the water is easier and you will love hanging out back when at anchor. Boat is equipped with table for dining, lots of cup holders and a great sound system with blue tooth so you can play your own music if desired. As for speed of boat, the Yamaha 212x has two twin jet engines and can reach speeds uo to about 40-50mph when you want to go fast... But if cruising slower and smooth is your thing we can do that too, its all up to you. The boat is inspected annually and maintained to the highest standards. There are no onboard restrooms, but no worries, I know all the onshore places to stop for breaks when needed. Reserve your private charter today!
We had Ken take us out on lake LBJ for bachelorette party and we had a WONDERFUL time! Ken was kind, prompt, and overall very intuitive about our needs throughout the day. Ken's boat was super nice and fit 6 of us very comfortably. Overall a wonderful experience that fit our budget. Thanks for everything, Ken!
Ken was such an awesome guide! He’s extremely knowledgeable about the area and was able to show our group new parts of the lake we hadn’t seen! We will definitely reach out in the future for another charter!
Ken is a fantastic captain. He went above and beyond and we had the best day on the water. Can't wait to go with him again!
Great host and on time!
