WAIVER AND RELEASE AGREEMENT

I fully understand that I have a duty to exercise reasonable care for my own safety and the safety of others and I agree to do so. I understand and assume the risks and hazards associated with transport, snorkeling, fishing, and boating including but not limited to:

Slipping/falling during boarding/un-boarding and during my entire time while on-board the vessel whether underway or at port.

Uncontrollable conditions while the vessel is underway, which can include but not limited to striking of known and unknown objects in the water, being struck by other vessels, and erratic changes in weather/sea conditions.

Landing/boarding any sea life, handling and being near sea life. This also includes encountering sea life while snorkeling or swimming.

Using equipment such as hooks, lures, knives, gaffs, and other tackle or tools while fishing in confined quarters of a vessel.

Drowning.

I understand that if I take part in snorkeling or swimming that I know how to swim and feel I can swim safely.

I also take full responsibility for any minor under my supervision.

My participation in these activities is voluntary.

Seasickness, lack of hydration and/or nutrition, and/or sun exposure.

Offshore trips (more than 40 miles from port) are not recommended for children under the age of two, pregnant women, people with neck or back problems, or those with heart conditions.

Often these trips can be strenuous due to uncertainty of the weather. This can be a jarring ride depending on the weather and sea conditions.

I understand that the vessel has limited medical facilities and in the event of illness or injury, medical care will need to be contacted via radio and treatment will be delayed until transportation to a proper medical facility.

I acknowledge and recognize the existence of these risks and assume all risks completely.
