EARLY BOARDING OPTION
This is a great value, allowing you to board your houseboat the evening before your scheduled departure day. This will allow you to load all of your vacation items onto the boat so you’ll be ready to leave immediately after the houseboat orientation the following morning. A limited amount of early boards are available on a first come, first served basis and reservations must be made in advance. For early boarding information, call 1-800-843-9218.

In order to avoid delays, missed payments and inconveniences, the credit card you used for your reservation deposit will automatically be billed for the remaining balance on the rental 60 days prior to your arrival, unless you contact us before this time to provide us an alternate form of payment. If booking a houseboat within 60 days of arrival, the full rental deposit and the full rental balance is due at the time of booking.
