Business Description

Well established boat tour business in the Caribbean (owner retiring)

This successful boat tour business with a 29 year track record is now available as a turn key operation. Great bottom line and owner/captain is willing to assist with the takeover for up to six months to assure a seamless transition. This tour was featured on the Travel Channel a few years ago and is well respected on trip advisor. Owner would love to continue and reap the rewards of building a great tour business but must accept the fact that the time has come to slow down. In addition to a great life style with the lowest crime rate in the Caribbean.... no traffic; pollution or alarm clocks; the Turks & Caicos Islands dodged major damage this hurricane season and is ready for a excellent tourist season. English language; U.S. dollar; no income tax; upscale guests and served by eight major airlines; (seven more than when I arrived in 1988) assures your chance of a successful operation. A wonderful new hospital with an excellent health care program is a bonus; only 90 Min from U.S. View business at BIG TIME BONUS.. Upon consultation with my island lawyer who initially set up the business 29 years ago; the buyer needs only to take over the existing business and shares and will jump into my shoes. This eliminates the need of having a local /native partner which is not the usual case when setting up a business in the islands!!!!!!!!
Note: The location map shows Port St. Lucie; Florida since the listing needed a U.S. address for processing; the boat tour business is located in Providenciales; Turks & Caicos Islands; sorry for confusion. Recommend e mailing me at or trying 649 333-0824/649 941-5810. Please leave a message and phone #/time zone and I will call. I have unlimited calling from the islands if you are located in the U.S. or Canada. E mails just generate more e mails and just does not work for me. No texting please.
P.S. To view my full page ad in the local award winning info magazine given out at the arrival ports/hotels/restaurants and food stores; go to and click the read issues on line. The Winter issue has my ad on page 71 with a side bar article on page 70. This tour is unique and has been fine tuned over the years to be noted as a "must do" when visiting the Turks & Caicos Islands. This "must do" recommendation took most of my 29 years doing tours here and a buyer will inherit this along with all the bookings that Ocean Outback Ltd.reaps from this reputation.
Another big plus to go along with all the other ones is my status a captain and I posses a PRC (permanent resident certificate) which allows me to work here indefinitely which would allow me to fill-in if a buyer needed to take a break or was called away for any emergency. I still love doing these fun boat tours and could be available on short notice.
