Adventure Business And Property For Sale in Clearwater, Bc, Canada

One Of Western Canada's Most Established Rafting Companies

Asking Price: $1,516,000 CAD  (Negotiable)

Established in 1983 Interior Whitewater continues to be the innovative leader in rafting adventures in British Columbia. Chosen in 2012 by the Canadian Tourism Commission to be part of their "Canadian Signature Experience" collection of companies, hand picked by the Federal Government that show case Canada and offer tourists a "Once In A Lifetime Experience" while in Canada. IWE is just one of two rafting companies in Canada to ever make it into this prestigious group of businesses.

The business was started in 1983 by Doug Trotter and he continues to be at the helm throughout the season. It operates primarily on the Clearwater River in Wells Gray Park-the 3rd largest wilderness park in BC. Wells Gray Park is currently being looked at for Western Canada's next UNESCO world heritage site or Geo Park. The Clearwater River has been described as the last big volume free flowing river of its kind in BC that eventually drains into the Pacific Ocean. In the book "The Mighty River" by Richard C. Bocking he talks about the Clearwater River. "At the town of Clearwater the North Thompson River is joined by one of the most spectacular tributaries of the Fraser system. Clearwater River is the culmination of an incredible concentration of waterfalls, rapids, and chutes, probably the greatest in BC. It is a world of whitewater and blue lakes protected by one of the provinces largest and finest parks, Wells Gray. This wilderness reserve stretches across more than 520,000 hectares of mountains and alpine meadows, recent volcanoes and lava flows, all drained by streams destined for the Clearwater River".

The season starts in Mid-May and usually goes until the end of September. IWE has a large and diverse amount of trips ranging from 3 hour kids trips to 5 day wilderness adventures. Some of the best whitewater in Western Canada can be found on the World famous Clearwater River. IWE has worked very hard over the years to establish relationships with oversees wholesalers and receptive tour operators who sell our products throughout the year. We have built up many great relationships in the town of Clearwater over the years and it shows in how we are able to market our trips.

The business operates out of a beautiful 4300 square/ft facility on 1.5 acres of land in Riverside Centre, the heart of the town of Clearwater. The business also owns 5 acres along the Clearwater River in the downtown area which has good opportunities to move the business there if a new owner chooses to do so. This 5 acres is the last large title of land along the Clearwater River downstream 800 meters from the border of Wells Gray Park. Opportunities for this parcel of land include all sorts of commercial tourism opportunities as well as potential for sub dividing for residential lots. Our main facility has 3 rental spaces of which all are currently full. IWE also owns the Kettle Cafe which is in the building and specializes in "Slow Food Cooking". The Kettle Cafe has developed a great reputation for quality food in the valley and looks after all of Interior Whitewater's food needs on all of their trips. Separate from the building is a 1200 sq/ft shop with two more out buildings for storage.

The business has held a Park Use Permit in Wells Gray Park for 33 years and has exclusive rights to 1.3 hectares of land for the purpose of launching whitewater rafts entirely within Wells Gray Park. IWE also holds a Land Tenure Agreement with the BC Government for rivers outside BC Parks primarily on the Chilcotin River for their 4 day "Stairway To Heaven" trip.

The business will be broken down into 4 different options.

1. Just the business. $446,000
2. The business and the 4300 sq/ft facility with cafe. $1,066,000
3. The business and the 5 acre riverfront property. $896,000
4. The business, the building, and the 5 acre riverfront property. $1,516,000
