Angel Island offers visitors a wide range of activities to engage in that are not only fun, but also help to promote and conserve its beautiful landscape. Regardless of whether you make your way to the island alone, with friends, together as a family, or even with colleagues, you can rest assured that the visit will be worth your time. Listed below are some of the activities you can partake in that have built Angel island’s reputation as a top team-building destination.

Angel Island Activities That are Great for Developing Comradery

Scavenger Hunts

Scavenger hunts are one of Angel Island’s most popular activities. Not only are they fun and exciting as you get to explore the island, but scavenger hunts can also foster teambuilding and bonding experiences so you can work to improve the personal and professional relationships in your life.

Angel Island’s natural flora and fauna are showcased beautifully during any scavenger hunt, during which participants answer questions, make observations, and solve puzzles to challenge each team’s creativity, teamwork, and perspicacity.

Special challenges and semi-hidden locations also make scavenger hunts on Angel Island a one-of-a-kind experience for those with a thirst for adventure.

Camping / Group Sites

Angel Island has 11 environmental campsites, comprised of an ADA site, 9-numbered sites that can accommodate up to 8 people, and a kayak-accessible group’s site that is capable of holding up to 20 people. As you can see, all these campsites are well-suited to handle a team-building event.

There are tables, restrooms, running water, and barbeque areas at each site; which creates the perfect setting for a team building experience.

Diggler Scooter Tours

You and your colleagues can explore Angel Island on mountain scooters that are both stylish and electric. Since not everyone may be comfortable taking a ride on such vehicles, this represents an ideal opportunity for teams to learn how to help each other to accomplish things together. The diggler scooters are also much easier to ride than regular bikes, which helps to shorten the learning process. Once you get the hang of it, you can take a relaxing ride as you and your colleagues go on a special tour of the island. In fact, you will see the Bay Area like you have never before, especially if you are on a guided excursion.


Cornhole is a really fun outdoor game that is played by two teams of two. Each player tosses bean bags across, with the objective being to land the bags on the opposing board or in the hole, to score points. The game can be played by people of all skill levels.  Cornhole also is a game that only requires one hand so it’s a great game to play while you’re holding a beverage!


Most people love fishing, and for those who don’t have a special liking for it, they often don’t mind trying it out under the right circumstances. This is one of the main reasons why having team-building events on Angel Island can be so beneficial. Activities such as fishing are known to bring people together since they foster cooperation, friendly competition, and team spirit.

So, whether you want to fish from the beaches, your boat, or on the island’s pier, the San Francisco Bay provides a variety of different fish including lingcod, halibut, leopard shark, sturgeon and striped bass.


The foot trails, perimeter road, and fire roads encircle the whole island, facilitating access to the 788-foot-high summit of Mt. Caroline Livermore.

The main trails are properly marked and are designed to prevent a wide range of hazards, including the poison oak that grows in the region.

As you can see, there are endless team building opportunities that can take place on Angel Island.
