Who is Antoine ?

What is your motto ?

Go for it!

Your sailing style ?

I listen to my passengers but also to the elements. I always do everything I can to leave people with the best possible memories – with passenger safety constantly in mind.

How do you handle the life on board ?

I explain, the crew participates if they want to

How does shopping work?

I take care of supply on board

How does cooking work?

I cook

How did you become skipper ?

I started out as a fisherman for 16-18 years and now I've been skipper for 10 years.

What people say about you?

Aren't you a bit young for a big boat like that?

Your best cruise memory

 My arrival in Antarctica. Mountains on the horizons. Whales everywhere. I discovered another world.

In your opinion, what makes for a successful cruise ?

A successful cruise for me is when people get off the boat and say "That was the most wonderful journey of my life."

Your worst cruise memory ?

Un démâtage :-( Mais tout s’est bien terminé, nous avons pu finir la croisière sans soucis.
