Business Description

Trade in your dress shoes for river sandals, work from home and outdoors, and take the winter off while you still earn over $100,000 a year as the owner/operator of this award-winning, 21-year established, highly profitable kayak school and tour business serving the ever-expanding Washington DC market!
As the premier paddling school that teaches adults on the Potomac River, and the leading regional brand, the business has developed a large community of competent adult paddlers in the region, who continually refer new customers back to the business. This word of mouth marketing, combined with the business' top ranking website, keeps marketing expenses down to a minimum.
The business can be run from anywhere there is an internet connection, using proprietary software that allows participants to schedule themselves. Kayaks, paddle boards, and rafts are pulled into and out of a busy national park on trailers, where a team of over 30 mature instructors and guides run classes and trips, using a proprietary teaching progression, quality equipment, proprietary apps, and electronic waivers.
In addition to highly-profitable lessons and trips, participants purchase necessary clothing and equipment from the business on its website. At the end of each season, participants purchase the kayaks, paddle boards, paddles, pfds, and other gear they used in the programs, at a profit to the business.
The owner can take the winter off, or market and sell international kayak and paddle board trips at a profit to the business, with all owner travel expenses paid for from the revenue from the trips.
Qualified buyers must have a passion for the outdoors and conservation, small-business acument, and the cash available to match the seller's 50% owner financing offer at asking price. Seller will not disclose any additional information on the business without a resume and proof of funds provided by the buyer(s). In the words of its own customers, this truly is "a great business", and it is a highly profitable one too!
