What we’re about


Kayaking can be physically and mentally demanding. Kayaking can involve significant risks and hazards, such as collision with power boats, hypothermia, joint or trauma injuries and even drowning.  Injury, both personal and property, may occur while traveling to or from a Float Your Boat activity.  All participants in a Float Your Boat activity - you, family members and guests - by participation in a Float Your Boat activity, acknowledge awareness of the risks, foreseen and unforeseen, which are inherent in each meet-up's activities and cannot be eliminated without destroying the unique character of the activity.  These inherent risks include, but are not limited to, the dangers of serious personal injury, property damage, and death from participation in or travel to and from the activity.
