sm-CLIMATE-CHANGE-_2_-Erosion-in-Grand-Bahama.jpg

Nassau Water Sports Company Uses Tech Tools to Shift Business - Aug 9, 2016 - 5:03:53 AM

Photo_1-Gerran_Nottage__CEO_of_My_Own_Water_Sports-small.jpg
Nassau, Bahamas - For local entrepreneur, Gerran Nottage, CEO of My Own Water Sports, success in business comes from seeing challenges as an opportunity to shift and grow.

The licensed boat captain grew up in the industry working closely with his father, veteran water sports operator Clifford Nottage who started in the business some 30 years ago. After obtaining a Master Tech Certificate in Marine Motors from the Marine Mechanics Institute in Orlando, FL in 2003, the younger Nottage returned home.  He worked in his father’s business for six years, learning from the best how to provide a quality experience for guests and sustain a viable business before starting his own company in 2009.

As the industry grew with little regulation, the market became saturated with unlicensed operators and there was less focus on the overall visitor experience. Earlier this year, local water sports operators received considerable backlash when a travel alert issued by the US Embassy warned American citizens to beware of operators on major beaches in New Providence.
