Proud owner shares team win
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.
