FAQ's for Houseboat Rental

Frequently Asked Questions 

Pleasure Craft Operators Certificates are required by both "Captains".  Visitors to Canada are exempt.  We do a full vessel familiarization and trial run

Q: WHAT TIME IS THE HOUSEBOAT TO BE MOORED EVERY EVENING?

A: All boats are required to be securely moored by 6:00 PM

Q: WHAT FUEL CONSUMPTION SHOULD I EXPECT?

A: Typical running time costs at cruise is $15.00 per hour. For the average charter you should budget $20 -$30 per day for fuel.
Of course, it depends on how much traveling you do!  The houseboats are equipped with a 230 liter tank.  You will leave the dock with a full tank of fuel.  You will not need to refuel until you return.  If your charter is more then one week, we suggest returning to the marina to refuel, have your holding tank pumped out and have your propane bottles checked.

A: Of course! Lake trout are common!
Lake Fishing regulations, daily catch quotas and license fees change frequently.  Residents of British Columbia under 16 do not require a license.  If you are under 16 and a non-resident, a person with a license must accompany you.

Please be safe and comply with these regulations.

"Wonderful vacation in a beautiful place. The weather was fantastic and the customer service even better. Thanks, Jeff, for all your hard work in making our vacation memorable. Hard to beat the hike from Sandy Beach where 2 eagles circled overhead. Loved it.."

"On behalf of our group I just wanted to thank Island houseboats for a superb week on one of their vessels on Lake Cowichan. It was the perfect option for the 8 of us, allowing us to attend a friends lakeside wedding in Youbou meaning we could be close by for an extremely affordable price. We were able to enjoy a sunset cruise and wake-up to this amazing view every morning. Truly a great week."
