We are building an Online booking tool for dive charters. It is in development right now. Most online booking tools do not work for dive boats because they do not allow for the different rates based on dive sites selected. More of the high level features are listed below.
1.Fully mobile friendly
2.Calendar and advanced search options
3.First diver that books dives will select dive sites and that will determine price of charter
4.Additional divers will be able to see selected dives and book open seats
5.Collect information on each diver (name and email address)
6.Diver can add items to cart (rental tanks shirts etc.)
7.Secure integrated credit card billing
8.Allow certain users to pay cash or check
9.Send booking confirmation to diver
10.Resend confirmation 24 hr before boat leaves with Directions, waiver, and any other information you choose
11.Full range of Coupon codes and discount options
12.Reduce refunds by issuing credit for canceled trips. Offer upgrade to book open seat on another more expensive charter.
13.Sends Captain roster prior to charter
14.Full set of reporting options to see open seats, diver history, captain
If you have a dive boat I would be interested in your feed back and what you would want in a booking program.
Software is going to be free to dive boat. Much like ticketmaster we will add a small online booking fee for each seat booked.
