Team Building in Kayaks

Large Group Kayaking adventures will take your group out of their daily routines and comfort zones and allow them to share an experience that is often a first-time proposition for many of the participants. The fun and laughter begin immediately and the entire experience is all-natural, organic and interactive — creating lasting memories and strong connections between participants. Using primarily tandem kayaks, teamwork is required on many levels with natural challenges built-in to the activity of tandem kayaking — and some not-so-natural challenges added for participants who think they’re up to the task.

When people share a new experience, or work together to solve a problem or overcome a challenge, teamwork is fostered and June 2011 009erelationships are built. Kayaking is indeed a new experience for most people. And, even for those who have kayaked before, kayaking with a group – as part of a team – is an excellent opportunity to learn to work together in a fun, low-stress environment while experiencing nature in a truly unique and exciting way.

Without exception, our guided kayak trips and team building events begin with several individuals learning a new activity in a natural setting – and they end with one group sharing laughter and stories about one of the most rewarding experiences of their lives. Even without a team-building agenda, group kayaking is the perfect team-building evolution and one of the best ways to build memories and bonds that will truly last a lifetime.

If you’re looking for the perfect idea for a group outing, team building activity or other corporate events, a guided kayak trip is what you seek. Whether an incentive or reward for a group, a wellness or stress-management outing or a team building experience, a guided kayak trip with our professional staff is the ultimate group activity for visitors to the coast — and a great way to bring groups together.

Team Building in War Canoes

Our Giant War Canoes are perfect for group outings and team building events! These BIG CANOES accommodate 10-people each and highlight all the aspects of teamwork and team building. A War Canoe Adventure requires immediate and constant cooperation and teamwork and bonds the group in a very special way. Sharing new and unusual experiences creates special connections between participants; and our War Canoes are by far the most unique and unusual group experience around.

Team Building with Mega SUP’s

Stand Up Paddle boards (SUP’s) have become increasingly popular in past years; but giant, MEGA SUP’s are relatively new to the paddling world. Our Mega SUP’s are over 18-feet in length and are rated for up to 8 adults (though we’ve seen as many as 13 on one during a team building event). With the Mega SUP’s, we aren’t limited to paddling at any particular venue; we can bring these Giant SUP’s to practically any lake with water access. If you have an alternate location for your event, just give us the details and we’ll make sure it’s an appropriate site for the Mega SUP’s. There are a number of team building games that can be played with Mega SUP’s and all of them involve the possibility of taking an unplanned swim. Because of that, we recommend Mega SUP’s only be used during the warmer months of the year to ensure comfort and safety. For more information about our Mega SUP’s, visit:
