Are you adventuresome? Do you love the outdoors? Are you tired of the corporate rat race and long for something more physically, emotionally, and financially rewarding? Put on your Indiana Jones mindset and ponder this great business opportunity. Businesses like this rarely come available and this one could be yours if you act fast.

Wet, wild...but safe whitewater rafting on some of the cleanest and most pristine rivers in North America. The history behind this company is legendary; the stuff great success stories are made of and you won't want to miss.

Work absolutely hard for six months out of the year and travel or relax the other six. This business is a money machine. I was simply amazing at how steadily the phone rings with customers booking trips for their families and/or group. The is all the result of years of hard work building a business that is a well respected brand and has spent years refining the marketing and customer service.

For those of you who have parents that have retired to the North Carolina or Tennessee mountains, this is a chance to move near them and acquire a unique business that will provide a wonderful new lifestyle in a unique business.

Even better news, sales have shown solid increase year over year with bottom line net showing similar, if not more, increases 2107 is at least 5% over 2016. Expectations are that business will continue to increase revenues as management takes even more steps to promote its adventures and finds more ways to trim costs.
