Corporate Team Building Activities on Lake Taupo


Get some FRESH air into your company! Team-building is such an integral part to a company’s success and we understand how hard it is to organise a corporate team-building that caters to everyone. If you are looking for a fun and unique venue that would suit everyone, then Chris Jolly Outdoors might be the solution for you.

Try a trout fishing or skeet shooting competition for some inter-departmental rivalry. Hop on a stand-up-paddleboard or kayak for a race between teams. Or just chill on the deck enjoying the cool breeze as the bosses crank up the barbie. Whatever you choose, there are plenty of activities to keep the team together and partners occupied. We can also work with other local operators to add a bit more adrenaline to your activity.

Here are some ideas:

Trout Fishing Competition
A fantastic, fun-for-all ‘Trout Fishing Competition’. Split your group into 2 -4 teams and let them show their fishing talent. After the winning tream is announced, lunch is served and the winners get to enjoy their delicious trout served with their meal. If there are other catches there should be enough for the others to enjoy! Our boats are also equipped for Clay Target shooting.

Hike to Water
Your group will be dropped off in Kinloch Bay (20 min drive from Taupo) and will hike the scenic Kinloch to Kawakawa Bay walkway. The group will be met by a private launch right on the beautiful sandy beach. As the group cruise back to Taupo they will enjoy a buffet lunch and a scenic trip taking in the Maori rock carvings.

Wheels to Water
Taupo is becoming well known for stunning Mountain Biking trails. Try something really different and uniquely Taupo, cycle the adventurous W2K (Whakaipo Bay to Kinloch Bay) track, where you will be met by one of our private boats, then enjoy a scenic cruise back to Taupo.

Paddle to Power
For those looking for a unique outdoors challenge, the paddle to power trip is ideal. Half of your group will kayak with professional guides while the other half cruise by private charter to the Maori rock carvings. Once at the carvings the two groups meet and swap over, see who can stay dry!!

Our range of activities on offer combined with our expertise means we can tailor a package to suit your requirements and your budget. All of our activites can be combined together to create an experience you’ll never forget. For more information, please feel free to contact our friendly team to discuss your next corporate team-building event.

We were looking for somewhere to launch our new fishing gear and Chris Jolly Outdoors was just perfect! It was great because our guests could try out our new rods right there and then.

We were wanting to take some of our VIP clients out and luxury boat Levante was prefect for that. Cosy, luxurious and intimate. Great service from Chris Jolly Outdoors too. Our clients really enjoyed themselves.

Quite a few of our staff are keen anglers so we thought a day out on the boat fishing and BBQ would do well as a team building exercise. Some even did stand up paddle boarding and clay shooting which was fun. Highly recommend. Definitely better than being stuck in office.
