About this business for sale

Marine & Nature Reserve Tourism

Our client is a market leading tourism operator/transporter providing a unique tourism service and activity to a strong domestic market and growing international market. With tourism on the rise and ever increasing numbers of tourists arriving in NZ, the Vendor has noticed an increase in international visitors on their daily excursions.

Having a skippers ticket is not a pre-requisite for purchasing/owning this business. An enthusiastic boatie with sufficient sea time could secure their skippers qualification with assistance from the current owners. The current owners will happily guide a buyer through the qualification process.

As one of only 2 operating DOC concessionaires permitted to access the DOC estate and provide guiding services in this area, the operator enjoys the benefit of very high barriers to entry from new competition. Our Vendor has experienced significant growth in visitor numbers since owning the business and DOC's strategic outlook is to increase visitor numbers to the area by 200%. This creates an exciting upside and opportunity for growth to a future owner.

The business is ideally suited for:

  • A skipper/husband and wife team
  • Enthusiastic recreational boatie with a part-time operations manager
  • A business owner with marketing and operations management skills
  • A qualified skipper wanting a day trip operation with a part-time operations manager
