This is a unique “hands-on” opportunity for a person loves the ocean and eco-tourism, and is interested in working seasonally in one of the loveliest areas of the world – on the south coast of Vancouver Island).

The business is unique not only because it features a 47 foot cedar strip vessel which serves both as a passenger vessel and a kayak mother-ship, but because it focuses on the Discovery and Chatham Islands, a protected marine wildlife area of Oak Bay close to Victoria, which is still pristine and immensely attractive to adventurers.

The person suited for taking over this part of my business would ideally be able to take a “hands-on” approach” on all matters, and be capable of driving the passenger vessel if not serving as a back -up kayak guide as well. Marketing skills are important as is the willingness to learn some new skills as a Skipper, naturalist and guide.

This business would especially suit a person who is established in the Victoria area, has a home with a work shed and room on his property to store the boat trailer, kayaks and equipment.
Facilities and Assets: Business Assets include all equipment necessary for the above operations (kayaks and equipment, kayak trailer, 45 foot cedar strip passenger vessel, inflatable and a wide variety of camping equipment). This vessel is capable of carrying up to 12 passengers on sightseeing tours, or carrying paddlers together with their kayaks and supplies for overnight kayak camping tours in and around Oak Bay and the Gulf Islands. Also included are 2 websites, and brochures
Market and Competition: My kayaking business has been operating successfully for over 15 years and operating in an area where there is little competition for what I offer. The Oak Bay islands offer the only wilderenss and island experience to be found in the Greater Victoria area, and our launch facilities are within 15 minutes of downown Victoria
Growth and Expansion: With the re-introduction of my passenger vessel there is now further growth potential and plans for expansion of operations. But these plans demand the energy and vision of a younger person, as I am nearing retirement and wish to focus on my sailing.
Support/Training: I will be willing to provide whatever training and support that may be needed for the first year of operation. I also have a competant guide that could be hired to assist if not oversee the kayak portion of this business
Reason Selling: retirement and need to spread the working load
