Get your company involved with Governors Island and enjoy everything this urban oasis has to offer.

Bring your company to Governors Island and partner with one of New York City’s most dynamic and fastest-growing destinations! We welcome corporate partners to plan fun and rejuvenating events on the Island, take part in an impactful team-building volunteer activity, and sponsor the Island’s popular events and programs.


Governors Island is the easiest way for your team to get away. Just eight minutes by ferry from lower Manhattan, the Island feels like a world away from the city with its lush landscapes, lively waterfront eateries and limitless outdoor recreation opportunities.

Our team will work with you to design the perfect outing for your group, giving you insider access to the Island's best features. Whether biking along seven miles of car-free paths, gathering for a fully-catered lunch in the open air, or simply relaxing and enjoying the spectacular views, your team will feel like they've left the city behind as soon as they step on the ferry.

Your corporate event can be fully customized to ensure a fun, fulfilling and rejuvenating day outside the office. Governors Island is ideal for corporate retreats, team-building exercises and company picnics of all sizes.
