Miami Seaquarium Corporate Team Building Activities & Events

Party area lit up at night

When it comes to planning where you want your corporate team building event and retreat to be held at, Miami Seaquarium is an ideal venue for enjoying an entertaining day while building team synergy and strengthening relationships! Miami Seaquarium offers more variety and excitement than the usual seminars, dinners, and training programs. If your company has a large variety of employees, bringing them to sunny Key Biscayne for a beautiful view of the city of Miami and getting some education on marine animals will make their day pretty interesting and unforgettable!

From swimming with dolphins and seals to cuddling next to a penguin, your team can experience a unique encounter of their choice. Plus, a private picnic tent and fascinating exhibits can add on to the full experience!

The Benefits of Team Building

Team building activities for corporate companies work well for every age group in multiple environments. This is known for establishing trust, building feelings of camaraderie, improving communication, and developing collective strategies that make a team successful. The successful completion of most team building tasks requires sharing ideas with each other, trying new approaches, and cooperating together as a team.

Corporate Team Building Games

Theme parks are a great way for your team to build closer relationships, experience being in a completely different location that is different from where they work, and to simply have fun! It is especially a lot different than regular offices when you have the kind of team building experience with Miami Seaquarium. Take a look at some corporate team building games you can do here with us at Miami Seaquarium and in any other attractions below!

Game #1: Miami Seaquarium Scavenger Hunt!

Game #2: Sharky’s Sky Trail

This is a great way to build trust with your team and have some bonding time! Sharky’s Sky Trail definitely gets you out of your comfort zone as you climb your way through different levels. Make it a game! Everyone can divide into different teams and make a competition of who can get through the sky trail the fastest. Your team will learn time management, work as a team to get from one point to the next, and create a committed bond that makes it to the end!

Game #3: Human Knot

At Miami Seaquarium, since we have the privilege of being located in sunny South Florida, the park can offer the corporate team to take over the back field (which overlooks the beautiful city of Miami) for a game of human knot! It works best with smaller groups, so divide a large group into teams of six to eight players and employees will learn teamwork skills and problem solving as they attempt to form their human knot. Begin with each individual facing inward, standing in a closed circle. Extend your arms into the center of the circle and randomly grab the hands and wrists of another individual. The challenge consists of untangling without loosening their hands!

Game #4: Mystery Drawing Marine Animal Edition

Take advantage of Miami Seaquarium’s event tent and have catered food while your team plays some games! Break your group into pairs and have each pair decide who will be the illustrator and who will be the director. Give a drawing to each director, in this case a choice of a marine animal, instructing him or her not to disclose the drawing to his or her partner (the illustrator). Give a blank piece of paper and a pencil to the illustrators and have both of them sit back to back. The directors will describe the drawing step-by-step to the illustrators who attempt to replicate the drawing. To make the process a bit more challenging, do not allow the illustrators to ask questions. When everyone is finished, have them compare their drawings. This team building exercise improves each participant’s ability to give and receive directions and creates more team bonding!
