Houseboat Reservation Policy

Upon making the reservation a credit card is required to secure your reservation with the option to send a check within 5 days. Reservations which are no shows will be canceled after 24 hours unless we have been contacted. The balance of the rental plus security deposit must be paid in full in advance of sailing. This is a very seasonal business with very little walk-in trade and necessitates a very firm cancellation policy. No Refunds will be made as a result of early termination of cruise.Deposits are refundable ONLY if we are able to re-rent for the entire reserved period!

If we re-rent, your deposit will be refunded (less a $50 handling charge), so be sure to notify us even if cancellation is on short notice. Help us help you get your refund!
