On request and if logistically feasible, we will clear away tables and chairs for you. For this we charge you CHF 79.- per hour and staff. The number of staff hours depends on the size of the boat.

Door entry
Your extra boat is normally ready for boarding ten minutes before the agreed departure time. If this time overlaps with the arrival or departure of a scheduled boat, the scheduled boats have priority. The arrival or departure of your extra trip will be slightly delayed as a result.

For idle storage times (e.g. for set-up work or rental extensions for the start or end of an event), a idle storage price per hour will be charged. The surcharges can be found on our «Boat charter price list».

Empty trips
The rental prices for our boats are calculated with the starting and ending point Interlaken Ost (for Lake Brienz) or Thun (for Lake Thun). Empty journeys to/from the embarkation or disembarkation pier are charged additionally. The surcharges can be found on our «Boat charter price list». 

Smoking is prohibited in enclosed areas on our boats. Smoking is permitted on the open decks.
