Polar navigation remains hazardous.
It requires specific skills and knowledge.
A modern Polar Vessel must have special characteristics and features that must comply with the Polar Code.
That is why you will need the expertise of a professional.
" 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."
