Ocean Raft­ing en­ters Hall of Fame

Whitsunday Times - - 2014 WHITSUNDAY TOURISM & BUSINESS AWARDS -

WHIT­SUN­DAY tour op­er­a­tor, Ocean Raft­ing, en­joyed suc­cess on Satur­day night at the Whit­sun­day Tourism Awards held at the Proser­pine En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre. Ocean Raft­ing took home the award for Tour and/or Trans­port Op­er­a­tor for the third year in a row, se­cur­ing the cov­eted Hall of Fame award for that same cat­e­gory.

Ocean Raft­ing own­ers Peter and Jan Clax­ton were proud of the achieve­ment.

“Achiev­ing Hall of Fame suc­cess and recog­ni­tion on a lo­cal level is some­thing we are very proud of,” Mrs Clax­ton said.

“We have such a fab­u­lous team of peo­ple who work for Ocean Raft­ing and love show­cas­ing the Whit­sun­days to the world. As well as thank­ing our won­der­ful staff we must ex­tend a big thank you to ev­ery­one who sup­ports our op­er­a­tion, from lo­cal agents, in­dus­try part­ners and of course our guests.”

Ocean Raft­ing has pre­vi­ously also won awards for the Tour and/or Trans­port cat­e­gory on a na­tional and state level.

The po­ten­tial to achieve Hall of Fame suc­cess on a state level is also a pos­si­bil­ity when Ocean Raft­ing vies for the Tour and/or Trans­port award at the Queens­land Tourism Awards in Novem­ber, after win­ning for the past two years.

Ocean Raft­ing is con­tin­u­ing its growth and de­vel­op­ment, with a new boat due for de­liv­ery within the next two months, bring­ing the Whit­sun­day fleet of ves­sels to five.

The fifth ves­sel will en­sure the company of­fers both daily tours and pri­vate char­ters for guests de­part­ing the main­land, is­lands and vis­it­ing cruise ships.

Ocean Raft­ing op­er­ates two ex­cit­ing day tour op­tions to some of the Whit­sun­days most de­sir­able des­ti­na­tions.

The North­ern Ex­po­sure and South­ern Lights tours are both fully guided and in­clude an ex­hil­a­rat­ing ride to White­haven Beach, pris­tine snorkelling reefs and guided Whit­sun­day is­land Na­tional Parks walks.
