The island of Maui is full of culture, recreation, and eclectic dining options, making it the perfect place to host a team building event or getaway. Besides its beautiful beaches, and excellent views, there’s a host of activities to choose from that will help build teamwork in an enjoyable manner. Here are 5 Maui team building activities that can appeal to everyone.
1. Go Snorkeling
Snorkeling is a popular pastime on the island of Maui. It requires very little experience and can be done in relatively shallow water for those unsure of their swimming skills. Snorkeling also presents an opportunity to go out together as a team and gaze upon the unique creatures of the sea that only Maui can offer. You can make a game of pointing out the different types of sea life like: triggerfish; yellow tang; parrotfish; and even manta rays or sea turtles. There are many amazing snorkeling spots throughout Maui, some of the favorite spots are in Molokini Crater; Turtle Town; and Ahihi Kinau Reserve.
2. Drive the Legendary Road to Hana
Nothing helps to build team morale like a road trip, and no road trip is quite as well-known in Maui as the famous Road to Hana. This 64-mile trek down Hana Highway will take you and your colleagues through some of the most beautiful areas of Maui. Enjoy lush foliage; breathtaking views; and some unique stopping points like the charming Hana Town. This is the perfect time to bond as a team as you tell stories; enjoy group hikes together; and immerse yourself in an experience you’ll always remember fondly.
3. Play a Round of Golf
Some of the world’s best golf courses can be found on Maui including the Gold Course at Wailea Golf Club; the Plantation Course at Kapalua Bay; and the Royal Ka’anapali Golf Course at Ka’anapali Resort. Each of these courses present a unique opportunity to challenge the skills of even the most seasoned golfer. While your colleagues come together over a round of golf you’ll also be enjoying the beauty of Maui such as the ocean waves and picturesque landscapes. They say most business relationships bloom on the golf course. If that course is in Maui, so much the better.
4. Take a Helicopter Tour
Exploring Maui by land is spectacular indeed, but seeing the island by air is another level of awesome. A helicopter flight over Maui will offer you views of enchanting areas that would be inaccessible otherwise. Explore remote landscapes; breathtaking coastlines; hidden valleys; scenic waterfalls; and the crystalline waters of the Pacific Ocean. Your team will certainly come together during this journey of a lifetime. For an added excursion, land in a remote area of the Hana Rainforest and enjoy a ground exploration through lush vegetation with scenic views surrounding you. The Hana Rainforest Experience is fully immersive and one-of-a-kind.
5. Go to a Luau
Going to a luau is already a must when in Hawaii. Enjoying this special experience with your team will make it that much better. The luau is steeped in tradition and offers the opportunity for you and your colleagues to learn the true essence of Hawaii. From traditional foods; ancient songs; skilled performances; and native dances; this is a great way to share in the Aloha spirit and take a little piece of its essence back to work with you.
