Hit the Hudson with Hornblower for a fresh take on team building in NYC.

How do you know a team-building activity will be successful? You host it somewhere everyone wants to be. Give your team a taste of the yacht life as they cruise New York Harbor aboard an elegant, multi-deck vessel all their own. With unbeatable views of the ever-changing Manhattan skyline as your backdrop, Hornblower can help you create a memorable onboard experience to suit your company’s style. Whether it’s an intimate cocktail party for 20 or an all-day cruise filled with fun opportunities to improve communication and inter-team dynamics, here are just a few reasons why you should take to the sea for your next event.

Let the Games Begin

Planning activities that everyone can enjoy—from cornhole to giant versions of favorites such as Connect 4 and Jenga—is crucial. But games are also an easy way to get teams engaged and talking. Just add music, drinks and the carefree attitude that comes with being on a yacht and you’ll see bonds form that can carry over into the workplace in transformative ways.

The Ties That Bind

Cooperation and problem-solving skills are essential in every office, and haven’t you heard that practice makes perfect? Put your group’s teamwork to the test at sea with custom onboard scavenger hunts, a Lost at Sea survival game or trivia tournaments. Working together outside the boardroom will not only help your crew practice critical thinking, the change of scenery can also help inspire creativity and improve team dynamics.

Check Your Worries at the Dock

Hornblower’s tailored corporate packages offer full-service food and beverage options that make planning easy. You’ll also have a dedicated sales manager, event coordinator and onboard event manager working with you from start to finish, making sure every detail of your group’s day at sea is taken care of.

Let Hornblower show you why everything really is better on a boat.
