Terms and conditions

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF RISK: Sea Kayak Devon would like you and your group to read the following acknowledgement of risk carefully. It may affect your safety and the safety of others. It is printed on each participants ticket for further reference.
1. Bookings are accepted on the understanding that Sea Kayak Devon (SKD) safety regulations are observed. You must follow the safety instructions of our staff.
2. You accept that SKD is under no liability whatsoever in respect of loss or damage to personal property not caused by the negligence of SKD and its employees
3. All our trips and courses involve some physical effort, which at times may be more than you are used to. If you have any medical conditions or injuries, past or present, which may make some activities including kayaking and SUP ill-advised you should make us aware of them.
4. All precautions will be taken, however, some situations may become stressful for some people. If you or anyone in your group has an unusual aversion to water you should let that be known to us, although the ability to swim is not a requirement. 
5. Participation in adventurous activities entails some risk of injury. SKD staff are trained and appropriately qualified to run our activity sessions and will at all times proceed in a manner to limit the risk and injury. However, participants accept that some inherent risks remain and accidents and injury may still occur. 
Acknowledgement: This acknowledgement of risk does not release Sea Kayak Devon from any of its obligations towards you, nor does it affect your legal rights. However, you acknowledge that you have read and understood the contents of this document.

Photos: on most, but not all trips, your instructor will be able to take photos of you and your group as well as wildlife using one of Sea Kayak Devons waterproof digital cameras. We will upload these pictures to Flickr and email you a link so you can view and download them free of charge. Occasionally we also use these pictures for promotional purposes on our website, Facebook page and other promotional material. Please let your instructor know if you or any of your group do not want to have pictures taken.
