Team building is essential for any thriving workplace. Good company culture helps create a good bottom line. Success is built by fostering communication, mitigating conflict, building trust, and having a shared sense of purpose among team members. While there are countless team building activities to choose from, hosting an event on a City Cruises yacht takes the concept to a whole new level. Replace the traditional corporate cocktail party and set sail with a team building outing on a yacht. Imagine your team surrounded by the stunning views of a city skyline, from the water! This unique setting creates the perfect environment for fostering camaraderie and inspiring creativity. Planning special events to keep employees engaged is key, and if you’re thinking of what type of team building event to host on the water, we’ll explore a curated list of team building ideas tailored for a corporate experience on a City Cruises yacht.


Setting Sail for Success and Team Building with City Cruises


Now more than ever, employees are on the move – and keeping them happy is a priority. Leadership needs to think outside the box and get creative. Luckily, you’ve come to the right spot because City Cruises has the perfect venues to host your next team building event, not just because of the location, but because of the amenities too! They offer several packages to choose from that are sure to make your corporate event stand out from the rest, including chef-prepared menus, full bar options, and customized entertainment for your event’s needs and your party size.

Depending on the size of your group and the location you select, City Cruises will have different options for you, from vessel sizes, deck(s), and even a large table for a small group of team members, the options are endless.

Teamwork and Collaboration at Sea

Transform your City Cruises vessel into an arena for friendly competition with a Team Olympics event. From relay races on the deck to puzzle-solving challenges in the lounge area, activities are designed to promote teamwork, communication, and a healthy dose of competition. Managers can award points for creativity, collaboration, and overall performance, with a celebratory ceremony at the end of the cruise to reward the winning team and your entire staff. This dynamic and interactive approach to team building injects a sense of excitement into the experience, leaving your team invigorated and motivated.




Sail to Serenity with a Mindfulness and Meditation Cruise

Amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday work life, taking a moment for yourself can do wonders for your well-being. Which means it is equally important to do the same in a group setting.  Arrange for a mindfulness and meditation session on the yacht’s deck, allowing your team to unwind and recharge. The soothing sounds of the water and refreshing breeze, coupled with the gentle rocking of the boat, create a serene environment for reflection and relaxation. This activity can promote emotional well-being, stress reduction, and a sense of unity among team members.


Sunset Strategy and Team Building Session

Combine strategic planning with a breathtaking backdrop by hosting your corporate team building event during sunset on a yacht. As the sun dips below the horizon, your team can engage in collaborative discussions about goals, vision, workflows, and future plans. This reflective and forward-thinking activity is a great way to encourage creativity and cap off a long day, week, or month to set the stage for future achievements.


Calling all Captains: Leadership Development and Team Building

Utilize the unique setting of a City Cruises yacht to host a leadership development symposium. Invite a guest speaker or facilitator to conduct team building workshops and discussions focused on different leadership styles, communication, and fostering a positive work culture. The intimate and inspiring atmosphere of the yacht encourages open dialogue and connection among team members.


Build Bridges Beyond the Boardroom: Networking on the Water

Turn your City Cruises yacht into a floating networking event where team members can connect with colleagues and/or peers in a relaxed and informal setting. With designated areas for mingling, exchanging ideas, and building professional relationships, this activity will promote communication outside the constraints of the office environment.
