I have read and I accept Houseboat Adventures Inc. Charter Policies.



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

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).

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 $500.00 damage deposit will be added to the houseboat rental. 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' $250.00; 58' $325.00; 68' $400.00.

Recycling and garbage if not separated $20 charge per garbage bag.

There is a $75.00 surcharge per pet.


For reservation deposits and 2nd deposit (due for weekly rentals) we accept Interac eTransfer (requires a Canadian Bank account), bank draft, cashier’s cheque or
personal cheque. Personal cheque must be received a minimum of 60 days in
advance of your arrival date. The reservation deposit(s) will be applied to the
balance due.


Upon arrival, we require a Visa or MasterCard to process a 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. We will ask for your signature for
the credit card pre-authorization and will process the transaction as a preauthorization. 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 is payable upon arrival for Charterers "Houseboat Adventure”. Balance
due is accepted in the form of a bank draft, cashier’s cheque, cash or Interac eTransfer (one transaction per rental and does require a Canadian Bank account). Etransfer must be received 7 days in advance of your arrival date. For your
convenience, there are several ATM’s within 2 blocks from our dock.


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.


The Insurance policy included in the rental fee carries a $500.00 deductible per
incident on the 44’ and 49’ and $1000.00 on the 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 deductible of $500.00 per incident on the 44’ and
49’ houseboats and $1000.00 on the 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 $150.00 - $250.00 depending on the extent of the damage.

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


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


Our Guest Package, which will help plan our guest’s vacation, will be emailed, starting
in March so guests can share the information with their crew.


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.

Mosquito coils and candles cannot be used on our houseboats.
