Today is the deadline to submit a business proposal to replace the iconic waterway cruises that have become a landmark of the Woodlands.
The six boats that used to ferry passengers along the canals suffered extensive damage during Hurricane Harvey, and the last of them stopped running more than a year ago.
“One of the differential advantages that we have in the Woodlands compared to the Greater Houston market is our waterway, our river walk. That is something that people enjoy very much,” says Nick Wolda, President of “Visit the Woodlands.”
So they have been taking proposals for replacement ideas. “We’ve had this Request for Interest open for about three and a half months,” says Wolda.
Are you an entrepreneur with a good idea? Wolda says they get calls daily from people wanting to know the times and locations of the cruises, and are always disappointed that the business had to shutter operations.
The deadline to submit proposals is 4 this afternoon at this site.
