Renter receives a full tank of fuel upon departure and pays only for the amount of fuel used. Fuel charges are based upon comparable prices found along the canal. You can expect to use approximately 2 gallons of fuel per hour of operation. This estimate is derived while operating at recommended speed. Weather and cargo brought aboard may slightly affect fuel usage.

The Canal Permit Fees and Lock Passage Fees are included in the price.

Docking along most of the Canal is free, however, there are some destinations where a small fee is charged by the dockmaster for overnight stay.
At all ports, water and shore power is available.
Showers, Pump-outs and Laundry Facilities are at specific ports.
Bridge operators can provide additional information.


Due to insurance regulations, no smoking is permitted on the houseboat.

In an effort to maintain an allergy free environment for our guests, no pets are permitted on the houseboat.

Should these policies be ignored, a cleaning fee of $250.00 will be applied to the final charge.
