Plastic Fishing

Looking for a fun, sustainable and environmentally friendly company outing? Plastic fishing is exactly what you are looking for! This is one of the most popular team outings in Amsterdam. You will be given scoop nets and the task is to fish as much plastic out of the canals as possible. Not only is this a perfect teambuilding activity, you will also contribute to a cleaner Amsterdam. Want to make it a bit more challenging? Then make it a competition! Who can fish the most plastic out of the canals? Would you like to do plastic fishing as a team outing? Then put this in the comments when renting a boat or contact us for more information and special requests.

Scavenger hunt

Do you want to discover Amsterdam, but also do it in an interactive way? Then a boat scavenger hunt is perfect for a company outing in Amsterdam! There is a lot to discover on the Amsterdam canals, and how much fun is it to do this during a treasure hunt? You will be given a number of assignments to carry out and get to know Amsterdam that way. Work together to get answers to the questions. Want to make it a bit more challenging? Then make several teams. Which team will finish the treasure hunt first? Would you like to do a treasure hunt through Amsterdam as a team outing?
