Water Sports Insurance


Keeping your Water sports business out of rough water

At Watkin Davies, we understand that there is far more to Water Sports than just getting wet.

There’s a thriving community of water sports businesses in the UK from Caithness through to Newquay, offering activities from scuba courses, snorkelling tours, boat rides, equipment hire and surf schools, enabling anyone from beginners to big kahunas to enjoy our marvellous coastlines. Water sports can offer the ultimate adrenaline rush whilst activities such as scuba diving evoke feelings of wonder unlike anything else – but conditions can be hard to predict, which means that you need to be prepared for any eventuality.

If you own your own surf school, hire out water sports equipment or offer scuba/snorkelling tours to adventurous tourists, you’ve probably seen first-hand what can go wrong when in hot water.
