Cody Whynot from Liverpool and his partner, Karlene Hauer, operate Whynot Adventure Outfitters Incorporated out of Kejimkujik National Park.
Offering canoe, kayak and bike rentals, the company that’s currently in its second year of operation, provides visitors with the complete outdoor/back country experience.
Tourists are coming for the complete experience and he believes they have just seen the tip of the iceberg. In fact, he says there is great potential to grow this type of tourism business.
A 2009 graduate from the Adventure Guiding Program at Thompson Rivers University in British Columbia, Whynot explains when he and Hauer, who has a degree in Adventure Tourism, heard about the business in March 2013 they knew right away it was a good opportunity.
After being turned down by three traditional banks, the pair found their way to South Shore Opportunities CBDC in Liverpool where they received overwhelming support for their proposal.
With their business plan and finances in order, Whynot Adventure Outfitters Incorporated opened in May 2013 and Whynot says it has been more than they could have ever imagined.
