Want to get the year off to a flying start for your team at work? Looking for a stress-free, fun-filled event for a club, fitness crew, or sports team? Let us throw you a three-hour Everyone’s Adventure event! No organising, perfect for summer, and we’ll do the dishes…

 

You’ll get kayak and standup paddleboard hire for a large group, beach sports gear, and a BBQ on our deck. We’ll do all the work and clean up afterwards - all you need to do is show up with your team and enjoy Wellington’s beautiful Days Bay. Bring your own BBQ food and self-cater, or pay a bit extra and we’ll sort it for you. Plus, you can BYO, and we’re selling cold drinks, ice cream and gelato for dessert!

Perfect for team-building, learning something new, getting to know each other better, and enjoying the great outdoors.

Plus, you’re contributing to an awesome community project - every dollar you spend goes towards covering The Boatshed’s operating costs this summer. Once those are taken care of, we’ll make gear hire free to the wider community for the rest of summer!

Check out our packages for different budgets and requirements. You can see what days are available and book your whole event in just a few clicks. FAQs, optional extras, and prices for catered food are below.
