Private Boat Safari in Sisimiut

Jan Bahnemann, owner of a private boat safari in Sisimiut, has been sailing for over 35 years and has accumulated knowledge about the sea and surrounding Sisimiut, where it offers unique tours and experiences for small groups, including the UNESCO World Heritage Tour to Sisimiut. On excursions, he shows the surrounding settlements, wildlife and talks about different types of fishing.

Sustainable development

In addition to unforgettable tourist experiences, Jan Bahnemann and his family are famous for their sustainable approach and participation in society. They have been involved in volunteer work that includes cleaning up litter from the environment, both on land and at sea, ahead of the peak tourist season. Embracing environmental responsibility can have a positive impact on others, and Sisimiut Private Boat Safari's initiatives can make a difference locally.

This commitment to sustainability can also be seen in its customized excursions tailored to the client's individual needs, as well as in its collaboration with other tourism operators in Sisimiut. Its mission is to ensure that tourism makes a positive contribution to the local community and that unique and authentic nature is not overburdened.
