Try Adding A Different View to Your Business Meetings
Attention all CEOs, Executives, Presidents and Managers!
Do you have retreats, seminars, board meetings, or incentive groups? How about chartering a small cruise vessel? There are many options on both coasts of the US as well as some of the rivers. This makes a great venue to have a “vacation with a purpose.” Getting out of the office and into adventure builds loyalty and comeradery with your company.
A number of years ago my husband & I had a small manufacturing business with a “revolving door”. Then we decided to have a company fishing trip for a weekend off the Washington State coast. We chartered a fishing boat and everyone departed for Westport to go salmon fishing. It was to be expected that Saturday night was party time, but the crew was up and running Sunday morning while it was still dark. We built loyalty and the “revolving door” closed. Those trips were talked about all year long.
Mix Fun with Play & Build a Team
You can easily plan your meetings around the daily events on the boat and there is no hard work doing the set up and take down. Many times these can become tax write offs. You could have a pre night event in the departure city while everyone gathers.
Here are some possibilities:
American Safari Cruises
American Safari Cruises has several itineraries to Alaska, Columbia & Snake Rivers, Sea of Cortez and Hawaii. The sleek profile and maneuverability of our yachts gives you unparalleled access to your destination’s many wonders. You come so close to pristine waterfalls that you feel the invigorating spray. Your itinerary is flexible enough that your Captain can change course when word of whale sightings comes over the radio, or slow the engines and linger in a tidal inlet if bears are out foraging on the beach. Maybe all the guests agree they want to spend extra time kayaking, hiking, or beach combing. It’s your trip.
Blount Small Ship Adventures
The Caribbean & Central America, The East Coast & Historic Rivers, and The Northeast Coast is where you’ll find adventure below the shady palm trees of a faraway beach, in the welcoming smiles of villagers living on the banks of a small river, or tucked under low bridges on a canal built in the 1800s. They’re the kind of places the big ships can’t go. And the kind of places that change the way you see your world.
Inner Sea Discoveries
Our Inside Passage cruise itineraries are designed to avoid the typical Alaska tourist-clogged towns in pursuit of up-close encounters with nature in a world where it is common to see whales, bears and sea lions all in the same day. Our goal is to get you deep into the heart of the Alaskan wilderness and let you truly experience the adventure of a lifetime.
American Cruise Lines
American Cruise Lines specializes in a unique style of small ship cruising along the inland waterways and rivers of the United States. Fascinating itineraries include the Pacific Northwest, Maine, New England Islands, Hudson River, Chesapeake Bay, the Historic South & Golden Isles, Florida, and the Mississippi River coming in 2012. There are many others in Europe such as canal boats in France and others.
