Blue Water Houseboats, Sicamous, BC

We are considering renting a houseboat from them in 2012 and would like to know if they are a reputable company with a good history of satisfied customers.

Getting feedback on houseboats is really tough because they don't qualify to be reviewed on TA. Or anywhere actually.

I have only found that it is a family business for 25 years and they have 7 styles of houseboats.

Here is a Youtube video I found. Take it as you will:

And the Better Business Bureau has had zero complaints about them in the last 3 years, which is actually a good sign. Remember that the BBB takes complaints and rates the company even if they are not a member.

Sorry I can't help further.

Why not ask them for references and exchange e-mails with some of their customers?

Boats rates are cheap but you get what you pay for! Everything about them is old and outdated. Spend the extra money and get a quality boat from another company. So many better outfits to choose from in the area.
