Business doesn’t have to be business as usual! You could plan your annual business strategy meeting or company retreat in any U.S. city and stay at a normal chain hotel and do normal teambuilding activities with your coworkers. Or you could escape to Emerald Isle and stay at a luxurious vacation rental with the ocean just steps away and participate in unique team building exercises on the beach or enjoy a scenic cruise or fishing trip with the group.
While Emerald Isle is the perfect beach getaway destination for families and friends, it’s also very accommodating for business meetings and company retreats. Emerald Isle offers plenty of spacious and affordable accommodation options and has tons of activities that are excellent for collaborating with coworkers and building rapport.

You’re just a 2-and-a-half-hour scenic drive away from North Carolina’s Crystal Coast for a weekend or weeklong visit to reconnect and build inspiration for the next big idea!
For companies that are looking for a retreat but aren’t within driving distance, there are two airports that are located approximately 45 minutes away from Emerald Isle. Ellis Airport (OAJ) and Coastal Carolina Regional Airport (EWN) fly both American Airlines and Delta Airlines and have Alamo, Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Hertz and National rental car companies available for your transportation needs.

Enjoy an array of fun group activities on the coast
After you discuss facts and figures, set goals and successful business strategies, get ready to hit the town with your team to enjoy some of the Crystal Coast’s favorite pastimes.
One way to immerse yourself and your coworkers into Emerald Isle is by going on a cruise along the Crystal Coast. Lookout Cruises charters a 45-foot Catamaran with comfortable seating for up to 45 people. While on the cruise, you’ll be able to see dolphins and other marine life, as well as other Crystal Coast gems, like the Cape Lookout Lighthouse.
Another way you and your group can participate in some teambuilding exercises is by taking a chartered deep-sea fishing trip. A number of fishing charters can be found throughout the area that offer half-or-full-day trips. You’re sure to find the perfect adventure to please everyone in the group.
Maybe hitting the green is more your thing? Emerald Isle has some of the United States most scenic golf courses. These golf clubs have courses that are manicured in a way that a professional would appreciate, with a coastal touch of course, and some clubs have more than just golf that you can participate in.
