Your business involves special risks and needs special protection.
Dawson & Keenan has been looking after the insurance needs of local resorts and ecotourism companies for decades. Tourism is part of our northern culture and we understand the needs and risks of these businesses. It is one of the fastest growing sectors of the tourism industry in the area, offering the kinds of thrills and excitement that no other travel experience can promise.
Our adventure tourism clients in the Sault Ste. Marie and across Ontario appreciate our approach to covering the very specialized risks associated with running an eco-resort or adventure tour operation. Dawson & Keenan can outfit your adventure tourism operation with a full slate of essential coverage options, including coverage for liability, property and equipment, among others.
Lawsuits happen – even when customers know the risks.
Ask any proprietor of an adventure tourism business and you’ll probably hear at least one horror story. A novice rider falls off a horse and injures their back on a group trail ride. A guest is hurt while participating in a zip-lining activity.
While every owner is obligated to ensure duty of care by mitigating risks through training, equipment upkeep, and other safety measures, injuries and accidents will happen. There is no perfect safety net to protect you from litigation.
Insurance is the best way to keep you and your business protected from the financial risks associated with any unexpected injuries.
