HOUSEBOAT ADVENTURES INC. - CHARTER POLICIES

PRICING

Our prices do include taxes (HST 13% included) and insurance.

ADDITIONAL COSTS

Fuel and propane is the expense of the Charterer and must be paid at the end of the houseboat vacation (average $200/trip). All rentals include one 16' Lund Fishing Boat (motor extra). There is a $75.00 surcharge per pet.

For safety reasons we require that the fishing boat has a motor - 25HP minimum on 49', 58' and 68' and 15HP minimum on 44'. The Charterer may bring his own, or rent one from us. Charterer may also tow their own personal boat and motor, if they prefer. The reason for the extra boat is that in the event of an emergency the Charterer has the ability to do something about it immediately. Having an extra boat along also makes exploring, fishing and touring more enjoyable!

A $500 damage deposit will be added to the houseboat rental and is due upon arrival. It is retained until the end of the trip and will be refunded to the Charterer less any fuel and propane used, and, of course assuming no damages have occurred.



Cleaning - All houseboats are supplied clean and must be returned clean. An extra charge will be applied for houseboats returned unclean. Cleaning charges:

44' $175.00; 49' $200.00; 58' $275.00; 68' $350.00

RESERVATION DEPOSIT

For reservation deposits (and 1st deposit due on weekly rentals) we accept Visa, MasterCard, personal cheque* or Interac e-Transfer (must have a Canadian Bank account). For 2nd deposit (weekly rentals) we accept a personal cheque*, bank draft, cashier’s cheque or Interac e-transfer. The reservation deposit will be applied to the balance due.

* Personal cheque must be received a minimum of 30 days in advance of your arrival date.

SECURITY DEPOSIT

Upon arrival we require a Visa or MasterCard to process a hold (pre-authorization) in the amount of $1500.00 to cover and or be applied to any possible damages; which is in addition to the $500.00 damage deposit as described above. We will ask for your signature for the credit card hold/pre-authorization and will process the transaction as a pre-authorization. The pre-authorization will be released upon the return of the houseboat and optional rental items in the original condition at the start of the houseboat rental and in an acceptable state of cleanliness.

BALANCE DUE

Balance due is payable upon arrival for Charterers "Houseboat Adventure”. In order for us to keep our prices as low as possible the balance due is accepted in the form of a Bank draft, cashiers cheque or cash. We also accept Interac e-transfer (one transaction per rental) if paid 7 days in advance of your boarding date. For your convenience there are several ATM’s just up the street from our dock.

CANCELLATION POLICY

In the event of a cancellation, 50% of any deposit paid is non refundable. The other 50% will be refunded, provided we are notified in writing / email 120 days prior to departure and after the 120-day period; provided we are successful in renting the houseboat at full rate.

INSURANCE / DAMAGES

The Insurance policy included in the rental fee carries a $500.00 deductable per incident on 44’ and 49’ houseboats and $1000.00 on 58’ and 68’ houseboats and covers below water damage to the hull, propeller and lower unit of both the houseboat and fishing boats(s) caused by accidental collision with a submerged object such as a rock or reef. It does not cover above water damage to the houseboat and fishing boat(s) including, but not limited to: hull, cabin, handrails etc. or damage to equipment such as, but not limited to; the anchor, chairs, generator or the loss of any equipment that is included in the rental package, no matter how the damage occurs. The Charterer and crew are responsible for the loss of any equipment and the full cost of any damage not covered by this policy.

PROPELLER DAMAGE – We will show you the propeller(s) prior to leaving our dock. Should any damage occur including nicks or dings the Charterer and crew are responsible for up to the deductable of $500.00 per incident on 44’ and 49’ houseboats and $1000.00 on 58’ and 68’ houseboats to repair any damage. This is discretionary to Houseboat Adventures Inc. , as, even though there may seem to be minor propeller damage, we are unable to fully access the entire lower unit, which could suffer hidden damage and is not visibly noticeable. Minor propeller damage may be charged $100.00 - $250.00 depending on the extent of the damage.

LATE RETURN

Houseboat must be tied up at our dock by 8:30 AM on return day. Charterer and crew returning houseboat late to our dock will be charged $100.00 per hour.

PET POLICY

Pets are not recommended on our houseboats. There will be a $75.00 surcharge per pet.

GUEST PACKAGE

Guest Package, which will help plan our guest’s vacation, will be mailed, starting in March. An on-line version of the package contents will be emailed so guests can share the information with their crew.

MISCELLANEOUS

Due to the way sound travels on a lake, and out of respect to other users of the lake, no high power speakers or amplified systems will be allowed on the houseboats. Systems such as portable sound docks are acceptable. Our dock is to be considered a quiet zone and no loud partying will be allowed.

Many reservations are made more than 6 months in advance, but last minute reservations can sometimes be accommodated.
