Testimony

" Working with Benoit was a great pleasure : motivation, extensive hands-on experience and determination are the main skills that allowed us to successfully accomplish our missions, often in harsh ice and weather conditions.

To summarize: a valuable guide in the pack ice and a very good seafarer to be recommended for any polar expedition."
