Corporate Groups

Corporate groups canoeing and kayaking

We can run a tour for your corporate groups canoeing down the river taking in some of the local sights. Alternatively you can choose to stay local and challenge your corporate groups competitive side with some games and skills. We usually paddle against the tide for the first part of the session, making the return trip easier on the arms!

Corporate Groups Team Building

Whatever your aims are, we write individual corporate team building programs for all aspects of your event. We provide programs which improve leadership skills, effective team-working, communication, time-management and problem solving.
