London’s Only Canal Treasure Huntcanal clue quest canal treasure hunt

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city this summer and join us for a summer activity like no other. This is your chance to drive your very own team boat in an iPad based treasure hunt along the culturally rich central London canal.

Voyagers will navigate themselves through magnificent scenery along the pre selected route in their very own modern electric boat! The boats are eco-friendly and made from 80% recycled plastic bottles fitted with Torqeedo electric motors and sustainably sourced wood.

Choose between Regents Canal, Paddington OR River Thames, Kingston-upon-Thames. For smaller groups (10-16) Paddington is the ideal location. Guests will see London from a completely different perspective as they cruise past highlights such as Little Venice, Regents Park & The London Zoo. We are excited to make London’s waterways accessible for every corporate group by providing a truly unique canal experience this summer. For larger groups (17-150) guests will explore the idyllic riverside location in Kingston-upon-Thames (Launching September 2021). 

Please note photos were taken in summer 2019. We are following strict covid-19 regulations to ensure your group has a safe and enjoyable time.

What are we doing to keep our clients safe?

  • New ‘Learning Zones’ to keep different groups at a safe distance

  • Every Boat is sanitised in-between each trip with an all-purpose cleaner that is also a disinfectant and sanitiser. On the floor of the boats we used a citrus based natural degreaser.

  • If anyone in your group experiences any corona symptoms please stay at home.

socially distanced team building activitiesKEEPING EACH OTHER SAFE

We understand it has been difficult to plan ahead in recent times. This is why we are providing you with a COVID guarantee on all of our team building activities. This means that if you or any of the group are unable to attend due to local or national restrictions we will help you rearrange the activity to a suitable date free of charge. However, we can now look ahead to a time where teams can come back together at a safe distance by following strict Covid regulations. At Team Tactics we love bringing teams together albeit virtually over the last few months. If you are planning the team reunion or are looking to bring your team back to your offices, we are here to provide safe socially distanced team building activities.

Canal Clue Quest

Each team will be given a full safety briefing including the rules of the waterway. One of our trusted skippers will then join you on board to give you a short demo of how to drive the boat before leaving you safe in the knowledge that you will be avoiding that ‘sinking feeling’. Don’t worry, the boats have a leisurely top speed of up to 3.5 knots (approx 4mph) so you will be safe on the water.

Teams will be issued with the latest iPad Mini before setting out on the Canal Treasure Hunt. Teams will need to navigate themselves along the canal making sure they answer as many questions as possible on the interactive iPad map as possible. Only when the GPS verifies that you are in exactly the right location along the canal will your team be able to activate the hotspot and attempt the challenges!

The challenge is to navigate around the hotspots to crack clues, complete challenges and earn as many points as possible. But please remember to return to the boat basin within the designated time or you will be severely penalised!

Package Includes

  • One electric power boat per team (2 hour hire & seats up to 8 people)
  • Professional Skippers on hand on the day including a high speed skipper boat for emergencies
  • Cosy blankets if the weather turns chilly
  • Event manager & event staff
  • Prize giving and results after the treasure hunt
  • Photos taken throughout the event sent via email
  • Public liability insurance £5 million

We did the treasure hunt as a team building event and we had an absolutely amazing time. It was very fun. Only thing I could suggest is to make the game a bit more easy.

We had an amazing time, regardless of the ever-fluctuating British weather conditions! It was impressive, that the questions were not straightforward “Ask Google” questions. The event was very well organised. Thanks to all at Team Tactics!
