Proud owner shares team win

Whitsunday Times - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

AN ec­static Ocean Raft­ing crew scored two gongs, tak­ing home the gold award for the Ma­jor Tour and Trans­port Op­er­a­tor cat­e­gory, as well as bronze in the Ad­ven­ture Tourism cat­e­gory.

Owner Jan Clax­ton was thrilled to re­ceive both awards which was proudly shared with a large con­tin­gent of staff on the night.

“In what has been a chal­leng­ing year for ev­ery­one, it was won­der­ful to see the tourism in­dus­try com­ing to­gether to cel­e­brate the in­dus­try’s night of nights. We in­vited most of our staff to en­joy the evening as we are so in­cred­i­bly proud of them and their con­tri­bu­tion to the on­go­ing suc­cess of the busi­ness,” Ms Clax­ton said.

Ocean Raft­ing saw the ar­rival of a sixth cus­tom built ves­sel this year and has since sub­mit­ted an order for a sev­enth ves­sel due in the near future.

“Win­ning the Ma­jor Tour and Trans­port cat­e­gory for the sec­ond year in a row is a sig­nif­i­cant achieve­ment for us and can be at­trib­uted to our on­go­ing growth and com­mit­ment to de­liv­er­ing ex­cep­tional tourism ex­pe­ri­ences,” she said.

“With a fleet of six ves­sels we can carry over 170 guests each day on an ex­hil­a­rat­ing ad­ven­ture to White­haven Beach, Hill In­let and our spe­cial snorkelling sites.”

Ocean Raft­ing is also an en­trant at the Queens­land Tourism Awards.
