The Northwest Maritime Center offers teambuilding programs that foster trust, team work, communication and connection among co-workers.

Step back in time aboard an historic 26 foot wooden replica rowing and sailing vessel. Up to 10 participants per longboat accompany our experienced Captains and Mates for an experience designed to allow every member of your team to realize their importance in the group’s success and have the opportunity to contribute.

While aboard the longboat, everyone will have a chance to row, sail, navigate and steer the boat. The program will stimulate creative problem solving while working on new and unfamiliar challenges. Participants will have opportunities to take new risks and different roles with co-workers and reach beyond their comfort zone.

“I’ve been in a lot of team building programs with a lot of different organizations, and this was the most superior activity I’ve ever done.” – Port Townsend Library Staff Member
