One of a Kind Corporate Events

If you’re planning an event for your business, break out of the ordinary and treat your employees, associates, and guests to an unforgettable experience on the water! Imagine chartering one (or several) of our Pontoon boats and Sea Doos for a day filled with laughs and memories that your team will never forget.

When you set up your next corporate event through RAW Watersports, we’ll make planning simple. That’s because our experienced team knows how valuable your time is and are committed to assisting you at every step of the way, from selecting the right boat(s) to organizing catering, photography, and anything else that you’ll need.

6 Reasons Why A Day on the Water is Perfect for Corporate Events

1. It forces you to get out of work mode

One of the key elements of a successful team building endeavour is to get your employees away from the office and the frame of mind that comes with it.

When your team embarks on a boat cruise, they’re compelled to leave behind the confines of the office and the mental strain that accompanies it. The serene ambiance of boating encourages relaxation and leisure, providing a much-needed break from the pressures of work. It’s an opportunity to disconnect, unwind, and immerse oneself in the tranquility of the open water, fostering a rejuvenating experience that promotes team bonding and mental rejuvenation.

2. Sunshine makes you happy

Embracing the sunshine isn’t just about soaking up rays; it’s a mood booster. As Reese Witherspoon’s character in Legally Blonde famously quipped, “Sunshine gives you endorphins. Sunshine makes you happy.” Basking in sunlight is a surefire strategy to invigorate and energize your team, eliminating the need for a mid-day coffee break. Getting on the water under the sun isn’t just a recreational activity; it’s a recipe for happiness and productivity.

Furthermore, studies have shown that exposure to natural light can improve mood, enhance creativity, and increase Vitamin D levels, promoting overall well-being. By incorporating outdoor activities on the water into your team-building events, you not only foster camaraderie but also prioritize the mental and physical health of your team members.

3. It’s a great way to show new (and old) team members the beauty of our region

Is your team filled with relatively newer residents? Boat tours are a wonderful, fun, and unique way to see the city from a different perspective. Help them get to know the city and fall in love with their new home – and, by association, their new workplace.

Additionally, depending on your time on the water you can explore specific areas of interest or learn about local history and landmarks. There’s nothing quite like cruising past the giant Canadian Flag on Windsor’s waterfront with the Renaissance Center towers across the water.

4. It may be outside of some people's comfort zones

Not everyone is an expert sailor or entirely comfortable on the water. And that’s perfectly all right, because that’s where the real bread and butter of a team building exercise comes into play. Choosing to do something slightly outside of someone’s comfort zone encourages personal growth and teamwork, as individuals support and encourage each other throughout the experience. Besides our expert staff are here to make sure your day is fun and safe with an on-water orientation before you set off and you can count on them to be there when you return to safely docks the boat(s)

5. It will help you bond through hardship

Navigating the waters, even on a leisurely boat tour, can present challenges. And if disaster movies taught us anything, it’s that people bond through shared adversity. While a boat tour won’t have you facing life-threatening situations, there may be moments that require teamwork and cooperation, fostering a stronger bond among colleagues.

6. It’s cost-effective

Finally (and this may be the only reason you need), boat tours are one of the most affordable and cost-effective group activities out there. Sure, you could spend hundreds renting out a venue or buying tickets for a big event. But why do that when you can enjoy the serenity and beauty of the open water together? Pack a picnic (or let us arrange catering from the Sandbar Waterfront Grill) fill a cooler and pack your sunscreen….that’s all you’ll need for a memorable day on the water.
