1. Nautical-Themed Scavenger Hunt

Nothing unites a team quite like the thrill of treasure hunting. Transform your luxury yacht charter into a nautical-themed scavenger hunt, hiding clues and items throughout the vessel for your team to uncover. Encourage healthy competition by dividing your group into smaller teams and offering prizes for the first team to find all the hidden treasures. This activity fosters communication, problem-solving, and teamwork, helping your employees build stronger connections with one another while enjoying the luxury yacht experience.

2. Onboard Culinary Challenge

One of the highlights of any yacht charter is the exquisite cuisine crafted by our experienced culinary partners, ‘Private Chefs of Brisbane’. Utilise our magnificent onboard kitchens for a fun and engaging culinary challenge that will have your team working together like a well-oiled machine. Divide employees into small groups and provide them with a pantry of ingredients as well as access to the yacht’s state-of-the-art cooking facilities. Assign a team leader or allow participants to select one for themselves, fostering leadership skills within your team. Task each group with creating a mouth-watering dish to be judged by their peers or an impartial panel, with prizes awarded to the most delicious and creative culinary masterpiece.

3. Watersports Team Relay

With access to jet skis, kayaks, scuba diving gear, and paddleboards on our luxurious Mermaid Spirit catamaran, your team can engage in exciting watersports adventures designed to strengthen teamwork and communication. Organise a watersports relay, where members must complete a series of aquatic challenges, such as navigating a jet-ski course or working together on a stand-up paddleboard. This activity allows team members to rely on and support each other’s strengths while creating unforgettable memories in the beautiful Gold Coast or Brisbane waters.

4. Navigational Team Challenge

For an activity that combines problem-solving and adventure, look no further than the navigational team challenge. Collaborate with our experienced captains to design a sailing course, complete with navigational waypoints and challenges to test your team’s strategic thinking and cooperation. Groups must work together to direct the yacht to each waypoint using maps, compasses, and teamwork, all while overcoming obstacles or puzzles along the way. By enhancing your team’s ability to be resourceful and adaptable, this activity strengthens their capacity to overcome hurdles in the workplace as a united front.

5. Shark Tank-style Pitch Competition

Why not combine your team-building event with a chance to explore new ideas that could benefit your company? Host an engaging Shark Tank-style pitch competition, where teams are tasked with brainstorming and presenting innovative solutions or products to a panel of “sharks” from within the organisation. Participants may prepare their pitches while enjoying downtime aboard the yacht, allowing for periods of relaxation and mingling. At the end of the event, the judges can provide valuable feedback and decide on potential implementation within the company, driving employee motivation and a sense of achievement.
