Why Kayaking Insurance?

Play Safer. Play Smarter.

Kayaking is one of those classic activities that puts you right in the center of nature and provides an excellent workout. It’s a fantastic upper body workout, will strengthen your core and legs, and is great aerobic exercise. Kayaking is also a low-impact sport that is easier on knees and ankles than running.

Kayaking is a versatile sport that can be done in practically any body of water and is easily pared with other activities like camping or fishing. Rivers, lakes, oceans and even surf zones are popular spots for kayaking. Everyone from beginners to experts can enjoy the sport. Whether you’re looking to take in the sights in a distinctive way or you’re looking to get a low-impact workout, kayaking has something to offer everyone.

Some of the best North American kayaking spots include the Grand Canyon, the Salmon River in Idaho, the big volume rapids and famous classic runs of West Virginia, and the Ottawa River in Canada. Top international kayaking spots include the French Alps, the Soča river in Slovenia, the White Nile in Uganda, Victoria Falls in Zambezi, and the Canary Islands of Spain. There are also great spots in Chile, Nepal, New Zealand and Norway.

Typically, kayaking is thought of as either a vacation activity for kids or a sightseeing opportunity for older people. But if you’re looking for thrills, wild water kayaking over waterfalls is about as intense as you can get. That’s what drew Brandon to kayaking. Sure, he loves the outdoors and the exercise, but the thrill of wild water is what really gets him excited!

Brandon has enough kayaking experience to understand the potential dangers involved. He’s learned not to paddle on waters he’s not prepared to handle and to watch carefully for rocks, dams, sweepers and other dangerous obstacles. Brandon understands the importance of a properly fitted life jacket and anticipating the weather conditions. He brings sunscreen and extra water in hot weather to prevent sunburn, heat stroke and dehydration. In cold weather he brings a wet/dry suit to avoid hypothermia, and seeks shelter when there is lightning or severe weather.

That’s why Brandon came to Good Neighbor – to protect himself in the event of an accident or illness while kayaking.

Many kayaking accidents can be avoided simply by staying alert and avoiding distractions. About 50% of the victims in kayak-related fatalities were fishing at the time and at least 25% of the victims of fatal kayak accidents were believed to have consumed alcohol just before the accident. Kayaking insurance plans can protect you in the event of an accident while kayaking with comprehensive medical, evacuation and sports equipment coverage.

Brandon thanks his brother to this day that he talked Brandon into purchasing a kayaking insurance plan for his European vacation a few years ago. His kayak crashed into some debris in a river and Brandon suffered a serious leg injury requiring surgery. Not only did he receive excellent medical treatment, his out-of-pocket cost was minimal and he avoided a huge financial burden.

Kayaking can be dangerous, but you can protect yourself like Brandon did with a kayaking insurance plan. Get started by selecting one of the featured plans below or by getting a quote now.
