Reservation / Security Deposit: is due via credit card at the time the reservation is made. We will send you a confirmation letter as a receipt for your deposit. The reservation deposit is not reflected in the price of the vacation. The reservation deposit is an additional charge. Upon occupancy of the boat, the reservation deposit converts to a security deposit. This will not be subtracted from the rental fee. The security deposit will be refunded via mail provided your boat is returned on time, undamaged, and the gas bill paid. Your deposit is returned to you within 7 to 10 days after your cruise.

To avoid any misunderstandings concerning breakdowns, accidents, inclement weather, or loss of cruising time, we check all mechanical equipment prior to your departure in our houseboat rentals. You need not accept your boat until you are satisfied with your boat and equipment. However, once upon the river, you alone are responsible for its operation. Under these circumstances, we cannot be responsible for any loss of cruising time due to mechanical failure, weather, illness, accident etc.
