Breathe in some fresh air, be inspired by gorgeous scenery and embrace corporate originality by taking your delegates out on the water for business meetings during the warmer weather. It’s the perfect way to treat your colleagues and delegates while doing something totally different together.

Here are just a few options of how you can take business out on the water…

Antaris Sixty6 Launch

Our sleek Antaris boat is ideal for whisking your delegates away for a lunch break in style. After a morning spent getting work done in one of our meeting rooms, climb aboard and enjoy a journey along the River Thames while tucking into our treat-filled picnic boxes and cool drinks from our coolers. During an hour-long lunch break you’ll get as far as Laleham or Penton Hook Lock and there’s space for 12 of you if you self-drive, or 10 if you’d like our skipper to take the reins.

Corporate cruise

For larger groups or for longer jaunts out on the water, we can organise roomier boats where you can do business before enjoying food aboard. Spend a day or half a day out on the water and have your business meeting while passing iconic countryside or the amazing sights of Windsor. Round the day off with a hot and cold buffet lunch or dinner filled with foodie treats, plus a drinks reception if you really want to push the boat out! Various boats are available, with a maximum capacity of up to 150.

Dragon boat racing

Level the playing field with your business associates by learning a new skill together. The perfect team building activity or adventurous treat for your delegates, dragon boat racing sees you all learning how to master these Chinese vessels together, before having an adrenalin-filled race along the Thames. Incorporate dragon boat racing into a team building day out along with other activities, or finish off a morning of business meetings with this fun-filled activity out on the water. Dragon boats can accommodate between eight and 16 paddlers each.
