Team Building Event

The outdoor adventure of a lifetime ..

The Team Building Event lasts for around two and a half hours and within that time teams work together to successfully complete their treasure hunt. The team building adventure involves each team organizing their route, deciding what order to answer the questions and seeking the answers by navigating some of Vancouver’s most breathtaking coastal attractions.

When teams return to our downtown location, scores are calculated and the winning teams are rewarded with some Treasure Hunt gold!!

The Event is a fun team building event that everyone will enjoy. It will let people get to know each other better in a relaxed environment while working on skills and tasks that will benefit everyone back in the office. What better way to spend a day away from work than out on the water.

To finish the day why not stroll around the world renowned Granville Island market and have a meal/drink at one of Granville Islands many restaurants (The Keg, Sand Bar, Bridges).
