Our History

The company is guided by the values and principles established by Arlen “Benny” Cenac’s grandfather, Jock Cenac, over 88 years ago: a commitment to employee satisfaction and great company morale. Benny takes pride in continuing the legacy started by his grandfather that was continued by his father, Arlen Cenac Sr., until it was passed down to Benny in 1981. He is committed to ensuring that the company continues to always operate as a family, and everyone from the boat captains to the deckhands are treated as such.
