New Expedition Added:
Antarctica’s Scotia Arc: The Ultimate Insider’s Voyage
A highlight of the 2014 holiday schedule, this 25-day voyage takes travelers off the beaten track – to rare and seldom-visited sites of the Scotia Sea – for a true insider’s journey to Antarctica. This expedition will follow the Scotia Arc, a sub-marine mountain range extending from the southernmost Andes, all the way through to the Antarctic Peninsula, calling in at the beautiful Falklands and South Georgia before heading south to the lesser-known and more remote South Sandwich, South Orkney and South Shetland archipelagos. Passengers will experience active volcanoes, rich bird life and some of the largest penguin colonies in Antarctica, all set against a rich historical background. One departure: December 15, 2014, starting at US$19,595.
Crossing the Circle via Falklands and South Georgia: Epic Antarctica
A sell-out for the 2013-2014 season, the 23-day Epic Antarctica voyage is the only one of its kind to take passengers to South Georgia, the Falkland Islands, and the Antarctic Peninsula exploring farther south across the Antarctic Circle. This extensive itinerary offers travelers a chance to see seven species of penguins and more than 30 species of birds while visiting the ‘Galapagos of the Poles.’ Two departures: December 2014 and January 2015, starting at US$18,995.
The largest of Quark’s fleet, the ‘Super Yacht,’ Ocean Diamond, is back with Quark Expeditions for its third season of Carbon Neutral Voyages™, along with the Sea Spirit, Quark’s luxury adventure ‘all-suites’ ship and the Sea Adventurer. All Quark’s ships feature outside cabins with en-suite facilities, internet access, a Polar Boutique, and a Polar Library.
