Outfitters and Guides

CBI's Outfitters and Guides program provides specially designed coverages and expertise to address the distinct exposures inherent to any guided activity. With over 15 years of experience, we're skilled at understanding and addressing the specific needs of the Outfitting Industry. Outfitters offer many activities, such as hunting, boating, fishing, hiking, biking, photography tours, or horseback riding.

Dude Ranch Operations
Whitewater Operations

From guest ranches in Jackson Hole to dude ranches in Texas, many working ranches welcome guests to experience life in the old west for a few days at a time. These ranches typically offer trail rides and may allow guests to participate in limited livestock handling. In addition to horseback riding guests may enjoy learning to use firearms, practicing arena riding and moonlit cookouts.

This program is designed to provide insurance coverage for not only commercial rafting operations but also kayak rental and instruction, river tubing operations, raft rental and other forms of river-based recreation.  With mulituple carrier options we can place coverage from Class I to V.

Fishing & Hunting Operations

This category addresses the needs of many types of lodging operations: Alaska fly-in fishing and hunting lodges, southern hunting plantations, Ozark fishing resorts, Texas big game and bird shooting preserves, upland hunting lodges in our nation's heartland and Rocky Mountain fishing and hunting lodges--just to name a few.

We can handle everything winter from Yellowstone Snowmobile Tours to Mushing a team of dogs in Big Sky.  We are not limited to guide operations, we can provide coverage for Snowmobile rentals, Cross Country Skiing and snowshoeing too.
