More than Insurance: Small Beginnings

guided hiking insurance

The roots of CBIZ Sattler Adventure Sports Insurance began in 1979 as four small outfitters in Idaho. Since then, that vision has grown to thousands of outfitters in all 50 states. We have our fair share of humble beginnings, rocky roads, and clear streams. But what brought us to where we are today? And what exactly is CBIZ Sattler Adventure Sports Insurance? We have one answer… dedication.

From testifying at state judiciary sessions on behalf of outfitters and guides, to speaking and exhibiting at industry association meetings and events, we are committed to our customers and love of the great outdoors. Just like you, we have a difficult time putting into words what wildlife and exploring our surroundings does for us. Hiking, whitewater rafting, hunting — our team does it all and has an extreme passion for the adventure nature provides.

That’s why CBIZ Sattler Adventure Sports is here to be your guide when it comes to navigating the winding rivers of insurance. We want the best   coverage  for your business and to help protect you and your adventure seeking guests. Our team insures businesses offering camping, dude ranches, yurts, canoeing, kayaking, white water rafting, fishing, big game hunting, horse rides, jet boats, snowcats, snowmobiles, ATVs, UTVs, Heli skiing, llama trekking, and much more.

For the fishermen and bird hunting outfitters, we have created a tailored insurance program called   Fins & Feathers.  This program includes  MOGA  provided recommended liability waiver (for Montana based outfitters) and includes all of your employee guides at no additional charge. 

We like to streamline all of our business and make it easy for you to have everything you need under one roof. That means you don’t need to go anywhere else to receive separate commercial property insurance, workers compensation insurance, or commercial auto insurance. CBIZ Sattler Adventure Sports covers all of that and even things such as professional liability, special events, crime, cyber, flood, and employment practices liability. You won’t find those under a strict commercial general liability insurance or workers compensation insurance policy.

Living life on the wild side is our idea of fun, and when there is nothing holding you back and you are insured, you can play safe and smarter.  Request a free quote  from CBIZ Sattler Adventure Sports today!
