Governors Island is the easiest way for your team to get outside and 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.

Let us curate your perfect outing
Our team will work with you to design the perfect outing for your group, giving you insider access to the Island's best features. Governors Island’s 172 acres offers expansive open space for social distancing and a safe team outing. 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. Governors Island is ideal for leadership training, corporate retreats, team-building exercises and company picnics.

Flexible Cancellation Policy
Due to COVID-19, an adjusted cancellation fee policy is in effect for 2020 events. In case of cancellation as a result of government restrictions due to COVID-19 that would materially impact the event, fees will be 100% refunded.

Join like-minded companies who have held fun, engaging, team-building retreats on the Island.
