Holiday Water-Sports: Top Safety Tips

Water-sports are a popular pastime for the 65 million trips abroad each year taken by UK travellers. It is worth checking that water-sports operators have good safety procedures such as:

  • Good storage and maintenance of equipment.
  • Provision of life-jackets and other safety equipment.
  • Clearly defined areas for different water sports/users.
  • Collection of personal and medical details by operators.
  • Jet ski operators should ask for ID, proof of age, and ideally, training.
  • Enough staff to provide look-out and rescue services.
  • Good communication systems
