This is a release of liability and waiver of certain legal rights

In consideration for my being permitted to participate in the activities of inshore kayak fishing, I agree to the following Waiver and Release:

I acknowledge that kayak flats fishing has inherent risks, hazards, and dangers for anyone, that cannot be eliminated, particularly in a wilderness environment. I UNDERSTAND THAT THESE RISKS, HAZARDS, AND DANGERS INCLUDE WITHOUT LIMITATION:

1. Water hazards in boating and wading the shallow flats including drowning;
2. Injuries from fishing equipment and other participants;
3. Encounters with wildlife, animals, and insects;
4. Temperature extremes;
5. Inclement weather conditions and unavailability of immediate medical attention in the wilderness in case of injury.

I understand the risks, hazards, and dangers of boating and have had the opportunity to discuss them with Capt. Butch. I understand that these activities may require good physical conditioning and a degree of skill and knowledge. I believe I have that good physical conditioning and the degree of skill and knowledge necessary for me to engage in these activities safely. I understand that I have responsibilities. My participation in this activity is purely voluntary. No one is forcing me to participate and I elect to participate in spite of the risks. I AM VOLUNTARILY USING THE SERVICES OF CAPT.
