Team Bonding or team building in Jacksonville can be fun and exciting if you choose the right team building activities. Adventures Up The Creek has the three most unique, outdoor, adventure-based, Eco-friendly team building activities in the River City — and they’re all guaranteed to be a big hit with any group. With several paddling locations in and around Downtown Jacksonville, Adventures Up The Creek offers Group Kayaking Outings, Big Canoe Adventures and Giant SUP Challenges for groups of 6-to-22 paddlers — depending on the activity. Team Building activities can last anywhere from 2-hour to all-day events. The staff at Adventures Up The Creek has been developing custom team building programs for over 20-years and will work with meeting and event planners or activity planners to custom design a group event or activity that fits practically any agenda or itinerary. With any of our on-water group paddling activities, team building objectives are met organically and without effort in a natural environment — often exceeding expectations for improving communications, cooperation and team work within the group.
Large Group Kayaking adventures in Jacksonville 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.
Adventures Up The Creek / Big Canoe Fun operates the only giant War Canoes in Northeast Florida and Georgia. Our Big Canoes are 25-feet in length and can accommodate up to 10-paddlers each — making them perfect for both large group team bonding outings on the scenic St. Johns River or races between two teams of up to 9-paddlers each (plus a guide). With or without a guide, every part of paddling a Big Canoe (also referred to as, “War Canoes,” or, “Voyageur Canoes”) requires communication, cooperation and team work. From boarding the canoes to paddling, maneuvering, racing and docking to unload, team work is not optional in a Big Canoe — it’s necessary and natural.
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.
Our group and team events are exclusive events with closed booking that is not open to the public. In addition to instruction and ongoing interpretation and oversight, our guides provide water and snacks; but attendees are welcome to bring along anything they’d like.
