Business Description:
Florida Karst and Cave Tours has been in business for one year and has achieved profitability. FKCT takes tourists from the Tampa Bay area to the only open caves in Florida- the Dames Cave complex including Peace, Vandals, Sick bat, and Girl Scouts Caves. Assets include a 14 passenger 2017 Ford transit 350 van, safety helmets, knee pads, lights, video players/ educational CDs, and sundries, as well as marketing agreements with Groupon and Living Social, registration as a supplier with local school districts (field trips are good money-makers!) as well as brochure distribution and display in over 400 hotels and restaurants. Intangibles include association with Florida Karst Education Center Inc., a healthy relationship with the Florida Forest Service, the recent designation of the area as a 'Day-use Recreation area within the state forest system, and the fact that the caves are now in the process of being renovated, restored, with parking, restrooms, and educational pavilions to be added by the state in the next three years- so the business can only grow! The cave tour was designed by a karst specialist so guests learn about Caves, Florida Karst Landscapers, Karst Aquifers, and Florida Ecosystems with an emphasis on the High Pine Sand Hill ecosystem in which the caves are located. The $50,000 price tag includes it all. Check it out on Facebook- nothing but 5-Star reviews! Current cave tours are only in mornings M-F so there is lots of room for growth. Ecotours can be expanded to weekends/ afternoons/ evening hours as well as providing ecotours of other Florida Outdoor Recreational venues such as Chassahowitzka Wilderness, Manatee viewing, kayak tours- this is a seed that can grow into a veritable money-tree. There are also other areas near to the caves that can be opened to business such as Orlando area, Ocala, and the southern counties of the Nature Coast. This business opened the caves to Florida- and now the word is spreading and business increases every month
