Whale Watching Tours business.
Whale watching tours are the largest segment of the booming multimillion dollar eco tourism industry. While starting a whale watching tour business is a costly business venture to set in motion, the personal and financial rewards can be tremendous. Beyond having the business located in an area that is excellent for whale watching, the main business requirement is a suitable tour boat and a certified captain at the helm, not to mention substantial liability insurance. Rates for whale watching tours vary as to the length of the tour, meals provided, and additional customer services. They may start at $50 per person and can go as high as $150 per person. The profit potential for a whale watching travel or tour business is exceptional once the business has been established. However, keep in mind that most whale watching tour businesses operate on a part-time or seasonal basis.
