Assumption of risk and responsibility and release of liability
Statement of Risk
At The Sands Barbados, your health, safety, and enjoyment are our primary concern. We want you to have fun, but we also feel it is important to inform you in advance that significant elements of risk exist in any adventure, sport, or activity associated with water sports and the outdoors. These risks may include, but are not limited to, the presence and use of motorized and non-motorized watercraft and related activities. We have taken reasonable steps to provide you with appropriate equipment and a skilled staff – NO WATERSPORTS ACTIVITY IS WITHOUT RISK. Certain risks cannot be eliminated without destroying the unique character of the activity, and these risks may result in the loss of or damage to equipment, personal injury, illness, and in extreme cases, permanent injury or death.
