"A man who is not afraid of the sea, will soon be drowned, he said, for he will be going out on a day he shouldn't. But we do be afraid of the sea, and we do only be drowned now and again."

I have the greatest respect for the elements and conduct my business in a professional manner. There is an inherent element of risk involved in adventure activities. It is my responsibility to manage the level of risk continually, using my experience, training and skill in an ever changing environment.
