“Watertaxi – Multiple franchise in west and north”

It is hereby published that Greenland Water Taxi has entered into new franchise agreements

with two other boat operators in Qasigiannguit and Maniitsoq respectively.

We will continue with the same concept in both Qasigiannguit and Maniitsoq where the focus will be on smallboat charters.

In Qasigiannguit you have the opportunity to invite some of the tourists down from Ilulissat who want to see another part of the disco bay and with short operating time to eg Aasiaat and other towns, we feel that Qasigiannguit is closely linked to our visions.

The cooperation takes place with Qasigiannguit Tourism & Charter, which has been started by our former skipper in Nuuk Water Taxi, Aannguaq Jerimiassen, so he has received a good training in concept, vision and mission.

“I’m glad that Aannguaq would like to start up with Water Taxi in Qasigiannguit, as there is also a great potential here with some amazing hidden places that only locals know. We will show them to the tourists. “Says Anders Lykke Laursen.

“I was happy when Anders suggested to start with Water Taxi in my hometown, as I think the whole concept about Water Taxi fits well with the smaller boats – We are looking forward to 2018!” Says a happy Aanguaq Jerimiassen.

In Maniitsoq, the cooperation will take place with the people of Arctic Wildlife Adventures, which already run a fishing camp in the Kangia Fjord at Maniitsoq.

“Maniitsoq has some amazing fjords and whales in great numbers, which we naturally want to help show to the tourists. In addition, there are many anglers as well as heliski tourists who come to Maniitsoq and can we help increase the number of them and bring in new ones, and maybe we can create even more jobs in Maniitsoq tourism. We believe it can be so. “Says Anders Lykke Laursen.

“The collaboration with Water Taxi means that we now feel that we are not alone in marketing ourselves and we can utilize the network and the recognition factor like Water Taxi. We know Maniitsoq, so who’s better to show it than us? We look really forward to next season, “says Karl Davidsen.

Within the next few weeks, the watertaxi.gl website will allow both private, business and foreign agents to book sailings with the yellow boats in all five destinations.

Press release on change of ownership (English version further down)

– Det har været en meget svær beslutning, udtaler Espen Andersen. Vi har haft 15 helt fantastiske år i Grønland, og der er mange ting vi kommer til at savne. Det gælder også Ilulissat Water Taxi, som har været rigtig sjov at starte, og jeg er helt overvældet over den gode modtagelse og start firmaet har fået.

Den nye ejer hedder Anders Lykke Laursen. Han kommer fra en stilling som categori manager i KNI A/S. Anders Lykke Laursen fortæller: – Det har været en drøm for mig at fortsætte Ilulissat Water Taxi. Det er et helt unikt brand, der er bygget op, og jeg glæder mig til at udvikle det endnu mere.

Espen Andersen fortsætter: – Jeg er rigtig glad for at Anders overtager firmaet. Vi har samme passion for at formidle Grønlands fantastiske natur, og hvad der også er vigtigt er, at vi har samme fokus på sikkerhed, service og udvikling. Så Anders er den helt rigtige til at drive Ilulissat Water Taxi videre i den rigtige ånd.
I Visit Greenland er der også glæde over, at Ilulissat Water Taxi bevares som virksomhed i Grønland.Seniorkonsulent Malik Milfeldt udtaler:

– Ilulissat Water Taxi har været et frisk pust i branchen, og har haft kant i sin markedsføring, som er nået langt omkring, og gavnet hele branchen i Grønland. Det er også et forgangs-iværksætterprojekt, der viser andre iværksættere, at det er muligt at starte rentable mikrovirksomheder i turistbranchen.

Anders Lykke Laursen siger, at han slet ikke kan vente med at komme i gang. – Vi har lavet en meget grundig overdragelse, således at kunderne ikke kommer til at mærke dette ejerskifte.
