INSPIRE. MOTIVATE. CHALLENGE

Motivate your group with fun water based games and team challenges with our stable, safe and easy to use riverbugs. Team building can be incorporated into our riverbug tours on one of the local awa, or as a calm water activity on the lake, moana (ocean) or swimming pool. 

A typical program starts with meet & greet, briefing, warm-up, equipment allocation, then it's off to the water to get to know your Bug. We'll ease into a few simple warm-up exercises to get everybody up to speed with paddling techniques. On our river based programs we then head downstream through the rapids as a group and introduce fun innovative challenges in the calm parts of the river. For our calm water based programs we get straight into fun riverbug games and initiative challenges – with a few surprises thrown in for good measure! A Bug Ball game being one of the highlights. 

Our river based programs are approximately 4 hours and calm water programs 2 or 3 hours. We can also customise duration and content to suit your needs. Program cost will depend on the size of your group and program duration. For river based programs we apply our group discounts 

  • 5% for groups 5 - 9 people
  • 10% for groups 10-14 people
  • 15% for groups 15+
  • Weekday trips outside of public holidays extra 5% off

Our flat water programs rates start from:

  • $10 per bug / hour per bug 
  • $50 per programme facilitator / hour
