The Antarctic is Waiting To Be Explored.

Antarctica, at times an unforgiving continent marked by harsh temperatures and rugged terrain, is home to a rich diversity of wildlife that inhabits the glaciers, mountains, bays, fjords, inlets, pebble beaches, and rugged coastlines. To experience the Antarctic Peninsula is to witness minke and humpback whales at close range, and to gaze upon icebergs of every conceivable shape and size in the bays, fjords, and inlets. Visitors can observe penguin colonies, or stand in awe at the sight (and sounds) of mammoth glaciers calving.  The sub-Antarctic destinations of the Falkland Islands and South Georgia are also not to be missed. Both islands are known as meccas for wildlife with epic displays of animals congregating by the thousands.

 

While exploring the Antarctic with Quark Expeditions you'll have the opportunity to experience their pioneering vessel, Ultramarine. This purpose-built vessel is designed to extend the boundaries of polar exploration and offer an unmatched Antarctic experience, including a flightseeing tour you’ll never forget and a range of adventure options more extensive than any other ship in its class.

Setting foot on the 7th Continent is a polar achievement relatively few people experience in their lifetime. Even more rare is the incomparable milestone that’s achieved when a traveler crosses the iconic Antarctic Circle. Navigating south of 66°33' S is—for most guests—the highlight of the 14-day itinerary Crossing the Circle: Southern Expedition, which rewards passengers daily with views of dramatic ice formations, humpback whales swimming alongside the ship, leopard seals diving beneath your Zodiac, penguins sliding off icebergs into crystal waters, or giant petrels soaring above the crackling sea.

Also available on the November 24, 2023 expedition at the same fare.
