Quark Expeditions has spent the last three decades taking travelers on polar expeditions to remote parts of the Arctic and Antarctic where few other humans have ever set foot. The vessels in Quark Expeditions’ fleet accommodate anywhere from 128 to 199 passengers. Smaller ships can take you to remote areas that large ships simply can’t reach. We know we can give guests the best polar experience on a smaller ship. The perfect polar expedition doesn't just happen. It takes a team of talented, knowledgeable and experienced professionals to bring it all together. Our Expedition Team is comprised of seasoned veterans with rich backgrounds in marine biology, history, glaciology, geology, and more. With the highest staff-to-guest ratio in the industry, our Expedition Teams safely deliver your trip-of-a-lifetime to maximize your polar adventure every step of the way.
