Established in 2005 and now for sale, wildlife tour business Orca Sea Safaris is based in Falmouth, Cornwall and offers 1- or 2-hour trips to individuals and groups exploring the immediate south west coastline.
One of the richest marine habitats in the world, this part of Cornwall is home to many wildlife species both on land and sea, making it the perfect environment for watching sea birds, pods of dolphins, groups of seals, basking sharks and whales.
The business operates from a ticket office kiosk which is situated in a prime position adjacent to Falmouth Maritime Museum, with departures taking place from the museum pontoon itself.
Tours accommodate up to 12 passengers at a time and covers around 30 miles of coastline. The vessel skipper provides a commentary throughout not only about wildlife but also covering facts about the area, its history, shipwrecks and the general marine environment. Private Charters are also catered for including high speed excursions or longer trips with a stop off for lunch or an hour exploring the River Fal.
The asking price for the business including all assets, other than the vessel, is £35,000 and would be ideal for a similar existing marine business seeking to expand operations. Or an owner of a suitably rated commercial vessel looking to conduct tours.
The option to purchase the vessel ‘Seaquest of Falmouth’ is by separate negotiation with a guide price of £85,000. The passenger RIB is specifically designed for sea safari tours with a dual steering facility and upper gantry providing an excellent observation platform for the skipper. Further details available on request.
