Celebrating 21 years of Freedom
Posted on January 7th, 2020
We all dream of making waves on our 21st birthday, and on New Year’s Day, Keppel Bay’s Freedom Fast Cats did exactly that.
One of the busiest days so far for the new decade, local day-trippers and holiday makers joined the crew from Freedom Fast Cats to celebrate New Year’s Day and this special milestone with summer sunshine, perfect weather and the always tropical waters of the Keppel Islands.
With island living and boats in their blood, the Allen family took their first trip across Keppel Bay under the ‘Freedom Fast Cat’ banner back in 1999.
Since then they have taken the daily journey from Rosslyn Bay Harbour to Great Keppel Island, proudly showcasing our island paradise to thousands of locals and visitors.
Now operating five ferries and two glass bottom boats, Max Allen Jnr spent the anniversary reflecting on the past 21 years, thrilled to see the business thriving as popularity continues to grow for the Capricorn Coast and Keppel Islands.
“Our family is so grateful to all of our customers, supporting business, agents and Capricorn Enterprise for all of their support over the past 21 years,” shared Max (Jnr).
“We’ve just launched a new website and online booking system, which we know will increase our business even more during 2020.”
“We hope to be here for quite a few years longer to be a part of and share in visitor holiday experiences in our top-notch part of the world.”
With the Keppel Islands only a 30-minute ferry ride away with Freedom Fast Cats, the Capricorn Coast promotes some of the best islands, unspoilt habitats and most pristine beaches within easy reach.
CEO of Capricorn Enterprise, Mary Carroll is delighted to have a first-rate operator on the Capricorn Coast to share their quality experience with visitors.
“For so many years, the crew of Freedom Fast Cats have guaranteed outstanding memories for their passengers through their consistent delivery of experience, impeccably maintained vessels and friendly service,” said Ms Carroll.
“Our destination is privileged to have such a successful business operating on our doorstep and wish them all the best for hopefully their next 21 years in Keppel Bay!”
Freedom Fast Cats provides island transfers 7-days a week. For the more adventurous, don’t miss the opportunity to cruise on their glass-bottomed boat and enjoy the wonders of the reef and spectacular
marine life. Step it up another level and you can immerse yourself in the underwater world with a snorkel tour and boom-netting on their adventure cruise.
To celebrate their birthday, Freedom Fast Cats is giving away two adult transfers to Great Keppel Island. Visit their Facebook page to enter. The competition will be drawn on 10th January.
