Sydney Harbour Kayak  - Search for the Tadashi

"Search for the Tadashi" - Is a super exciting on-water strategic game using Sea Kayaks (and lots of life-like props).

During WWII a Japanese sub, the Tadashi, disappeared into Middle Harbour and today, you have been transported back in time into a war that has come to Sydney's doorstep. It is up to you and your fellow team mates to save Australia.

The Sydney Harbour Kayaks Team Building program consists of three specifically designed activities that aim to bring out the best in your team, group or employees.

Middle Harbour / paddle to beautiful places that are only accessible with a sea kayak.

These activities were designed to focus on motivation, leadership, communication and collaboration. They are all unique, a lot of fun and are proven to gain positive results. The Tadashi begins with you being divided into teams and provided with vital clues to solve the exciting mystery.

We have a changing room with toilet and shower facilities.

At only $175 per person it’s a very detailed and authentic team building activity

The "Search for the Tadashi" is a fun, 'light-hearted' team building exercise (strategic game), focusing on leadership, problem solving and collaboration. It is also a lot of fun and very fulfilling when both adults and children are involved. Hopefully your morse code and code cracking skills are ready for some testing, to assist you in solving the mystery.

The emphasis is on fun with a subtle introduction of leadership, communication and cooperation. In addition your team will enjoy the healthy benefits of paddling in beautiful Middle Harbour and leave refreshed, enthusiastic and ready to apply new practical skills at work.


The "Search for the Tadashi" takes about 2 hours and is ideal for groups of 10 to 20 people.

The Team Building Activities are able to be run when you require; 7 days per week.


  • They require a minimum of six people to start and we can manage up to 60 people at one time (Our group discounts start over 40 people.)

At only $175 per person it's the perfect way to discover parts of Sydney you will only ever see from the water as well as being a very detailed and authentic team building activity.
