A leading Amazon sport fishing and adventure company. With 20 plus years of experience, it is the Amazon’s premiere provider of fishing trips for peacock bass and exotic Amazon gamefish species. The company is a highly respected jungle outfitter that explores the Amazon basin in pursuit of outstanding fisheries and then operates organized, secure and comfortable group sport-fishing trips to these extraordinary locations. With access to a wide range of Amazon destinations, home to the world’s greatest gamefish, the company has successfully grown into an important force in the adventure fishing trip industry that sells over 500 angler trips per year. Will go where others can’t or won’t to give anglers a one-of-a-kind Amazon wilderness adventure. Provides smooth logistics, highly trained staff that provide a level of comfort and service that makes anglers forget just how far from civilization they are.
The company is a profit generating mechanism for any buyer. This opportunity also provides a perfectly synergistic acquisition for, or with, existing outdoor companies, since its equatorial operating season (fall and winter) is complementary to the Northern hemisphere’s warm-weather operating seasons. This enables the company’s existing clientele to also utilize a potential buyer’s services while providing an off-season option for the potential buyer’s clientele.
Since the 2008-2009 recession, the company has grown and outstripped all operators, outfitters and agencies endeavoring to compete in this market.
The company owns outright or controls exclusively, four trip implementation systems, ensuring access to almost any kind of aquatic environment and providing a broad range of accommodation options.
Yacht /Mothership operation – Essentially an 80 foot floating hotel, providing elegant and comfortable accommodations for 10 to 20 anglers at a time. Access is by charter aircraft.
Fly-in Floating camp – Essentially a system of air-conditioned mobile cabins trailing a powered kitchen/dining room. The cabins are deployed on Amazon River beaches and provide a comfortable, laid back atmosphere. Access is by Cessna caravan floatplane only.
Fixed Lodge – A rustic, air-conditioned jungle lodge built on an island in a river. The lodge is in a protected, exclusive region with contractual fishing rights. Access is by Cessna caravan float plane only.
Safari-style tent camp – Used for special explorations.
The company will more than assist any serious buyer that wants to fully understand and consider buying this wonderful opportunity.

Privately owned Charter Coach Service, located in Ohio doing business since 1920. There are 8 First Class Motor Coaches,one is brand new,4 of which are owned outright.

Clients include several colleges that provides a solid customer base. 70% of sales come from direct from the public and 30% from tour operators. Top Destinations are NY, D.C., Chicago, Nashville, Louisville, Cleveland and Columbus.
The company strictly charters, does not put trips together. Putting trips together is a future growth strategy, as there are fewer travel/tour agencies. This will mean higher margins and revenues. Over the past several years, many smaller travel agencies and bus companies have ceased operations. There seems to be an opportunity to combine bus operations with a dedicated travel agency, to market to a growing population of student and senior travel groups. Someone with the background and drive could expand into the travel business and triple the company’s market.
With the company’s excellent safety and maintenance records and diversity of clients, the base for expansion is already in place.
