Waiver

WAIVER OF ALL CLAIMS, RELEASE FROM LIABILITY, AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK

 

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE SIGNING; liability waivers for adventure-based activities have been consistently upheld in BC courts.  By agreeing to this waiver, you are assuming physical and legal risks and giving up legal rights including the right to claim compensation should you be injured or killed as a participant with Island Life Expeditions.

 

In consideration for being permitted to participate in the activities of Island Life Expedition (whom are hereinafter referred to as the “Releasee”),

 

 I, ___________________________________________________________ {Client Name}

 

1. Do hereby release and save harmless the Releasee, their officers, employees, independent contractors and agents from all claims, actions, causes of actions, expenses, and demands of any kind whatsoever, in respect of all personal injuries or property losses which I may suffer arising out of or connected with my participation in the activities of the Releasee, including such injuries or losses that may have been caused solely or partly by the negligence of the Releasee or any of their officers, employees, or agents; and

 

2. That I understand by signing this release, I am giving up any right I would otherwise have to make a legal or other claim against the Releasee; and

 

3. I do hereby acknowledge and agree:

           

a) that the activities of the Releasee, including fresh water and ocean stand-up paddle boarding, involve self-powered activities in wilderness terrain, travel to such remote areas, immersion in water, proximity to wildlife, and exposure to dangerous weather and unpredictable conditions which are inherently dangerous, exposing participants to potential risks and hazards;

           

b) that such risks and hazards can result in property loss and personal injury, including but not limited to:

loss of or damage to personal property, immersion in cold water, hypothermia, hyperthermia, drowning, animal attacks, slipping and falling, falling objects, including any type of accident or illness;

           

 c) that, as a result of these risks and hazards, I may suffer serious personal injury, including, but not limited to: nausea, disease, broken bones, cuts, bruises, burns, insect bites, back and neck injuries, permanent disability, death, and property loss;

           

d) that, due to the remote location of the activities, communication, medical aid and emergency response times are significantly longer than in urban settings;

           

e) that, while some of these risks and hazards are inherent in the very nature of the activities and locations, others may result from mechanical or material failure, human error, and negligence on the part of persons involved in preparing, organizing and running the programs and activities; 

           

f) that I nevertheless freely and voluntarily assume all the risks and hazards, and that, accordingly, my participation in the programs and activities of the Releasee will be entirely at my own risk;

           

g) that my participation in the Releasee activities requires me to share the responsibility for my own safety and those of other participants during all activities and requires me to follow all instructions and directions of the Releasee instructors and guides; and

           

h) that I am responsible for and will bear all costs and expenses of rescue or medical attention rendered to me or for my benefit while participating in any the Releasee programs or activities; and

 

4. That this RELEASE FROM LIABILITY AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK AGREEMENT is binding upon my heirs, my executors, administrators, personal representatives, assigns and myself.

 

I HAVE READ THIS RELEASE FROM LIABILITY AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK AGREEMENT, I FULLY UNDERSTAND THE SAME, AND I AGREE TO ITS TERMS.
