Charter Boat Reservation Software

Charter Boat Bookings is boat reservation software. It is not a general reservation system for tour operators that has been adapted into an online boat booking system. The target users are owner-operator captains with no code writing expertise or agents developing an e-commerce website for captains. The dashboard has as few settings as possible to set up a typical sailing or fishing schedule and take paid reservations, manage availability, and communicate effectively with your customers.

Charter Boat Bookings is a WordPress Plugin and a WooCommerce extension designed specifically as a boat booking system for Charter Boats. It is built to suit the business needs of Sailing Charters, Fishing Charters, Sportfishing, Fishing Guides, even Duck Hunting Guides. This WordPress charter boat booking system includes industry specific features including weather predictions and sunset dependent products. Book private or per person charters, and set your maximum passenger capacity. Minimize refunds with built-in reservation fee and final balance.
