How Much Does it Cost???

We always try to go during the “late summer” season in August.  This is a HUGE savings for us – using the Ultimate Cruiser as an example, it’s $5902 in “peak summer” and only $4404 in “late summer”.  We also get a “return customer” discount of 10% which is a big savings too!  Check my next tab for “How to get HUGE Savings on your houseboat rental”

We charged $445 per person   We all ended up with a little money left over at the end.  You always want to OVER budget – there is nothing worse than needing to collect more money from everyone.  It is always a pleasant surprise to get money BACK for your return trip!

Here is a breakdown of the ACTUAL costs at the end of our trip:

  • Houseboat – $4780 ( we rented the Orion on this trip)
  • Ski Boat – $1,575 (we had to rent one this year as nobody in our group had one
  • Fuel for houseboat and ski boat – $1,000
  • Ice – $300
  • Food & Alcohol – $900
  • Miscellaneous – $200
  • Standup Paddleboards – $100 (we borrowed these from friends but got them each $50 Starbucks gift cards as a thank you)

TOTAL – $8855
