Catalina team-building activities should include time for your team to connect

Take some time to relax together: On a food tour, your team will have the chance to relax and unwind together, creating better cohesion and deepening the bonds between team members. Whether you are looking to launch a new concept, achieve your sales goals or reward your crew for a job well done, having the time together outside of the office and without work will increase moral and forge friendships.

There’s liquid conversation lubrication: There’s nothing like a cocktail – or two – to break down the barriers between people and encourage conversation. If you choose a food tour — or our Catalina Happy Hour Tour — for your team-building activity on Catalina Island, you can customize the alcohol options, either adding an additional stop for an extra beverage or – if company protocol dictates – eliminate the alcohol altogether.
