CHARLESTON, SC--(Marketwired - Jul 13, 2016) - EZ Waves, an online charter booking service for fishing, sailing, kayaking and all other water-based activities, announces its launch today with nearly 500 captains available for bookings in the United States, Costa Rica, Mexico, Canada and Norway. EZ Waves is the only program that streamlines the maritime booking process, providing live scheduling that allows guests to book online directly on captains' schedules and be on the water in as little as three hours. Captains also benefit from EZ Waves' simplified process of reserving excursions, handling payments and managing schedules.
"Combining my love for the water and passion to teach entrepreneurs about the business of running a business is how EZ Waves became a reality," said Vickie Waller, founder of EZ Waves. "Small business owners have an eagerness and enthusiasm that is unmatched. They take big risks when putting their resources on the line to follow their passions and I love helping make those dreams come true."
With same-day reservation options, EZ Waves makes it simple for guests and captains to instantly book sailing lessons, offshore fishing trips, sunset cruises, eco tours and more. Excursions last anywhere from a few hours to a few days and provide a unique setting for special events such as engagements, birthday parties, intimate wedding receptions and corporate events.
Captains using EZ Waves are now able to grow their chartering businesses, build a strong customer base and gain repeat guests as well as advertise, email market and offer coupons. Once a trip is finalized, captains are immediately notified in real-time through the EZ Waves Companion app. Available through the Apple Store and Google Play, the mobile app allows captains to create a public profile, manage their schedules, see what trips are booked for a given day, start and end trips, and add price adjustments and tips at any time.
"I've been in the sport fishing charter business for more than 15 years and as one of the more established captains in the Florida Keys, time management is one of my biggest challenges," said Captain Ariel Medero of Big Game Sportfishing. "With the power and efficiency of EZ Waves' scheduling and reservation system, I'm now able to spend more time with my family and new baby daughter."
In addition, EZ Waves was recently selected as one of five companies to participate in the Stadia Sports Accelerator, a business development accelerator for sports startups that provides $100,000 in investments as well as mentoring and networking. The company beat out 170 applications and 10 finalists to grab a spot in the Spring 2016 class, benefiting from Stadia's specific curriculum for business strategy, international distribution, partnerships, investor relations and more.
