While on the boat trips, you can still engage in other team building activities like painting the beautiful view of the waters and its surroundings, playing the lost- at- waters team building games where you don’t use the navigation and together see whether you can get to a certain spot or destination. This helps build up the trust among the participating members since you have to collaborate and depend on each other to survive and get to your destination hence getting to know each other’s strengths, weaknesses and interests. Others activities maybe playing the catch and return where you choose to fish and return them on water and whoever catches the most at the end of it becomes the winner and is given a gift.
