My Trips

Personal work

Since my first swim in Corsica at the age of 6
and my encounter with my first whale in 1995,
I am below or above the sea!

Objectives 2023

  • Continue to fight against the captivity of marine mammals and zoos!

The death of the last killer whale Kiska in captivity in Canada is outrageous and supporting the marine sanctuary to help rehabilitate them is the best thing! To read the beautiful poem of my friend Franck.

  • I anchor a book and update a new website!

This winter, between my shift as a helmsman on the ferry in the Magdalen Islands (QC, Canada), I am writing my autobiography! I talk about where I come from, my youth, Corsica, my relationship with the sea, captivity, ocean pollution, marine mammals, my travels and the consecration of my work as a captain in Canada. In addition, my childhood friend Tsha-Tsha has created a brand new website for me but I have to learn how to update it! The two are linked because I draw a lot from this site to recall my memories and dates.


  • Whale watching cruises in Canada for an 8th season!

I confirm that I will return to the whale and seal cruises this summer for - Essipit Cruises (QC, Canada) from May 28th to September 25th 2023 inclusively! After 2008, from 2010 to 2015 (2016 for replacements) and 2022, I hope that everything goes well for my 8th season. My goal is to reach 10 seasons!

  • 5 weeks in the Canadian Arctic on a cargo ship between October and November 2022.

It was magnificent: Iceberg, the capital of Nunavut: Iqaluit, isolated villages like Pangnirtung, Baffin Island, polar landscapes, seals, etc...

  • Captain with - Essipit Cruises - for the observation of marine mammals in the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park (Canada, QC).

My first cruise with Essipit was in 2008, then from 2010 to 2017 and back in 2022. I will continue in 2023! Come and see me !

Discovery Cruises

Come and meet the marine mammals


A unique experience

Impressive and elusive, marine wildlife can be observed in exceptional conditions during the summer season in Canada



Beyond the show, these outings allow us to realize how small we are, all the wonderful magic of nature and the elements that are beyond us.



The whales approach the boats on their own and we make sure that they are in permanent confidence


20+ years of sailing

I know perfectly the ocean and the climate in this area where I have lived and sailed for a lifetime

Cetacean Watching

Are you an NGO? Interested in my work?

In Canada

I live in Northern Canada all year round and it is a favorite area for whales and other northern resident mammals, I would be happy to respond to any observation and photographic missions requested.

In the Mediterranean Sea

I am particularly familiar with this maritime area which was my first observation ground and I can carry out short missions oriented towards marine mammals.



I have studied in French Polynesia, French Guiana and the West Indies. I would be delighted to discover new areas of observation and to bring comparative capabilities for short missions.
