VACATION POLICIES

The vacation year at Twin Anchors is broken up into three seasons –  Low, Mid and Peak. All are colour coded on our calendars. Once you’ve decided when you’d like to depart, book early to avoid disappointment. Remember, we will hold a houseboat for up to 10 days without obligation.

2022 SEASONS
PEAK JUNE 30 – AUGUST 31
MID JUNE 9 – JUNE 29
SEPTEMBER 1 – SEPTEMBER 14
LOW  MAY 1 – JUNE 8
SEPTEMBER 15 – OCTOBER 15

CANCELLATION & REFUND POLICY

Reservations for Houseboat Vacations made after March 19, 2020 will not be considered extenuating circumstances related to COVID-19, except where the reservation holder is currently sick with COVID-19 at time of sail. Confirmation of COVID-19 diagnosis required.

Extenuating circumstances are intended to protect guests from unforeseen challenges that arise after booking. After the Declaration of COVID-19 as a global pandemic by the World Health Organization, it is no longer an extenuating circumstance because COVID-19, and its consequences, are no longer unforeseen or unexpected.

Twin Anchors Houseboats will not refund charters due to: transportation disruptions and cancellations; travel advisories and restrictions; health advisories and quarantines; changes to applicable laws; and other government mandates (foreign or domestic) – such as evacuation orders, border closures, prohibitions on short-term rentals, and shelter in place requirements.

Please review our cancellation policy in full. If you would like to inquire about our medical cancellation policy, please call the office 1-800-663-4026

AGE RESTRICTIONS

The person making the reservation and the two captains must be at
least 19 years of age with valid drivers’ licences.

DEPOSIT

Your deposit of $500 ($1500 for CruiseCraft 5, CruiseCraft 6 and Legacy 94) is required to confirm your reservation. The deposit is applied to the charter fee. Please see CHANGE/CANCELLATION PARAGRAPH for additional details. Deposits can be paid by credit card or by mailing a money order.

CHARTER PAYMENT

OPTION A: The full balance of your charter is due 120 days prior to departure date.

OPTION B: The balance (less deposit) can be paid in 4 equal monthly installments starting
120 days prior to departure for an additional 5% administration fee.
(120 days/ 90 days/ 60 days/ 30 days).

CHANGE / CANCELLATION

A $100 fee will be charged if you change your reservation 1–6 days after booking.

Your deposit of $500 ($1500 for CruiseCraft 5 & 6 and Legacy 94) will be retained by Twin Anchors if you cancel or change a reservation 6 days after booking or 119 days before departure.

Full charter fee (PAYMENT OPTIONS A & B) will be retained by Twin Anchors if you cancel your reservation less than 120 days prior to departure.

• We offer a policy (additional cost) which will ensure you get a full refund in case of accident, and/or medical reasons. For further details please call our office at 1-800-663-4026.

Deposit must be placed on the Captain’s credit card.

PETS

$50 for a dog below the knee; $75 for a dog above the knee. Cats don’t usually enjoy the boats so we recommend to not bring them. Any other questions – please call us 1.800.663.4026.

ADDITIONAL EXPENSES

Fuel and septic pump-out, along with Provincial Marine Park fee levy are the only additional expenses. Park fee levy will be added at time of booking. Park fee levies are dependent on size of houseboat. Fuel and septic pump-out are paid at the end of the charter.
