the hurricanes of the last several years really tore up flamingo and caused the discontinuation of the houseboat rentals they had. i just spoke with xanterra, the company that operates the concessions out of flamingo, and they are not going to start them back up. bummer
The ENP/Flamingo draft commercial services plan is on the street for comment. Houseboats are listed as an "appropriate" use in the park, but there is no guarantee that they will be brought back.
Now would be a good time to provide input on the proposed alternatives and push to bring back houseboats. The comment period ends January 25, 2008.http://www.nps.gov/ever/parknews/park-seek...rvices-plan.htm
