Sea kayaking and cruising have inherent risks and can be dangerous. In Fiordland they are characterised by remoteness, rapidly changing and sometimes extreme weather and water conditions, cold water and limited kayak landing sites.
Detailed risk management and strict safety procedures are observed, however, there still remains an element of risk.
Fiordland Wilderness Experiences cannot absolutely guarantee participants’ safety. Fiordland Wilderness Experiences accepts its legal responsibilities but cannot be held responsible for personal injury or for loss, theft or damage of/to your equipment outside legal responsibilities. Participants will be required to sign a liability form to this effect before starting a tour. Changing conditions can mean that trips have to be modified. No two trips are the same. Weather could prevent kayaking and delay your scheduled return. Clients on guided trips must follow guides’ instructions and adhere to safety requirements. Our reputation depends on your safety - we give it top priority and take it seriously.
