San Diego is home to some of the best hikes, outdoor activities, and beaches in Southern California. Take advantage of San Diego’s endless activities and great weather by taking your company or group team building activity outdoors! Our unique activities highlight teamwork and encourage creative problem solving. The most successful and memorable team building events are the ones that challenge everyone to think outside the typical workday and bring new creative solutions to the table.
Building a strong bond with your team will increase their sense of belonging and will increase loyalty to the company or organization. It’s important that every team member feels like they add value and are valued as individuals. A loyal community will bring your company or organization great benefits such as stronger relationships and bonds, dedication, and increased team engagement.
Communication is key to your company or organization’s success. Understanding how to communicate with co-workers or team members can significantly increase engagement, job satisfaction, and trust. Team building activities can help break down barriers to encourage communication and interactions in situations that are not work related. This can help others get to know how others work in a more casual setting.
Strong teamwork and understanding with everyone in your company or organization is important for many reasons. Encouraging teamwork will lead to others feeling more comfortable in providing constructive feedback, resolving peer to peer issues individually, and trusting that other team members. Team building activities encourage socializing, teamwork, communication, and problem solving which are important factors to a successful company or organization.
Employees and team members want to feel comfortable in their workspace. Creating an environment that encourages teamwork and healthy competition is important for team morale and trust.

La Jolla Shores is an easy 3 minute walk from the Hike Bike Kayak shop and we transport kayaks and paddles to the beach for you. Once everyone is at the beach, we will do a short training session on how to maneuver your kayak and the activities/games we will be doing in the water.

We will make a few stops on our way to the La Jolla Sea Caves, and our guides will share facts and history about the area.
