A boat cruise in Turks and Caicos is an incredible way to experience these beautiful, one-of-a-kind islands. So if you’re planning a corporate retreat to Turks and Caicos, here’s why you must add a corporate boat cruise to your to-do list.
1. Team Bonding Is Critical for Company Culture
One of the main reasons many employers schedule a corporate retreat is to create quality time for team bonding. Positive company culture is becoming more and more important in today’s corporate world. Allowing time for team bonding is one of the most effective ways to foster a good culture. It can help mitigate conflict, build trust, encourage communication, and foster collaboration. At the end of a corporate boat cruise in the Turks and Caicios, your team is sure to feel more bonded and ready to work hard when they return to the office while also feeling appreciated for their hard work.
2. Show Your Team Around the Islands
If you’re going to schedule a corporate retreat in Turks and Caicos, you want to be sure your team gets to see all that the islands have to offer. One of the best and most cost-effective ways to do this is to schedule a corporate boat cruise. There are 40 islands and cays that make up the Turks and Caicos Islands. Some are only accessible by boat. Let your team experience the wonder of the areas, including the endangered Turks and Caicos Rock Iguana on Iguana Island, a truly unforgettable place.
3. Bond Over World-Class Snorkeling
You simply can’t visit Turks and Caicos and miss out on the incredible snorkeling. Home to one of the finest reef systems in the tropical Atlantic, there are about 340 miles of reef filled with purple sea fan beds and vibrant elkhorn coral that are home to parrotfish, angelfish, triggerfish, black durgons, blue tangs, and more. There are also a healthy array of predators like nurse sharks, reef sharks, barracudas, eagle rays, and stingrays. It’s hard to replicate what it’s like to have the shared experience of snorkeling together, and doing it in Turks and Caicos is sure to bring a team closer than ever.
4. Catch a Big Fish Together
Another world-class activity in the Turks and Caicos Islands is fishing. There are several different types of fishing you can experience here. One of the most popular is reef and bottom fishing. Don’t worry, the whole team doesn’t have to be avid fishers to have a good time and reel in a big one. A corporate boat cruise will allow all participants learn how to properly cast and reel in so everyone has a good time. Scheduling a fishing cruise also means all equipment is provided, so there is no need to pack any rods, nets, coolers, or bait. Your team may even catch something suitable for eating, like red snapper, yellow snapper, or Nassau grouper. Just imagine the bonding opportunity when the team gets to feast on fish caught together that day! Or better yet, if someone happens to snag a shark!
