EcoTourism Boat Business Feasibility Analysis

Date: 2008-2009

EcoPlan conducted a feasibility study that assessed the purchase of a boat by a small, isolated, and Aboriginal community on the coast of British Columbia. This boat purchase was identified as a tourism opportunity to provide wilderness ecotours to visitors while also providing the local population with access to the mainland for community needs. Using a social enterprise model, this boat will utilize tourism revenues raised in the summer months to support and maintain the 12-month usage of the boat for other community and social priorities.
