Navigate the 1,000 miles of criss-crossed waterways within the California Delta, or cruise the calm waters of Lake Shasta -- "the largest fresh-water reservoir in California, the perfect introduction to the pleasures of houseboating, and one of the most enjoyable ways friends and family can spend time together" (Frommer's).

This deal is part of a larger sale, where all houseboat models and small boat rentals (when reserved with a houseboat) are 25% off.

Note: Fuel is additional (average three-day cost is $70-$100). Bedding is not provided. Houseboats are pet-friendly.

This deal is not available on: May 27; July 4.
