Cancellation policy and Travel Insurance
Below is the cancellation policy for each or our charter boat types if you choose not to purchase Travel Protection. The cancellation policy does change with the purchase of Travel Protection at the time you book your charter boat.
24’ – 28’ Powerboats – We require a $100 non-refundable deposit to make your reservation. The remaining balance of the boat becomes due and non-refundable 2 weeks prior.
33’ Deluxe Powerboat – We require a $200 non-refundable deposit to make your reservation. The remaining balance of the boat becomes due and non-refundable 2 weeks prior.
40’ “Vivid Dreams” party boat – We require a $500 non-refundable deposit to make your reservation. The remaining balance of the boat becomes due and non-refundable 1 month prior.
- 4th of July Fireworks – Full payment is required to make your reservation and is non-refundable.
- Holiday Periods – Full payment becomes due and non-refundable 1 month prior.
We provide optional Travel Protection for 10% of the charter boat rate. This allows you to cancel for any reason up to 48 hours prior and get a full refund on the boat rate. Travel Protection itself is non-refundable.
We highly recommend purchasing Travel Protection so that you can get a refund on your charter boat if you need to cancel for any reason. This includes illness, death, Covid- 19, lodging cancellations, change in vacation destination, flight cancellations or delays, poor weather forecast, poor air quality forecast due to smoke or fires, road closures, or any other reason that is not the responsibility of Lake Tahoe Boat Rides.
If your Captain cancels due to weather safety, then you will get a full refund. Please note that this decision is very often a last minute decision as the weather in Lake Tahoe changes quickly. The forecast you see is only a forecast. Lake Tahoe is very big and a poor forecast often does not affect the part of the lake that we operate out of.
If you do not purchase Travel Protection and you do cancel for an acceptable reason and with enough notice, then we can issue you a credit for future use (gift card) this season.
Please communicate with us as early as possible regarding any cancellations and rescheduling so that we can do our best to accommodate you.
