Quark Expeditions

Now this a close encounter! Experience unique wildlife experiences while on a Quark Expeditions voyage.

Founded in 1991, Quark Expeditions is a leader in polar adventures. In fact, they ran the first-ever tourism transit of the Northeast Passage (to the North Pole). Quark takes their guests on polar expeditions to remote parts of the Arctic and Antarctic.

Small Ship Advantages

The vessels that make up the Quark Expeditions fleet accommodate under 200 passengers, taking their guests to remote areas that larger ships cannot reach. With less guests, Quark Expeditions often has significantly more time spent at each landing site, in comparison with larger ships that need more time to get their guests on and off their ships. With a more intimate group, guests get to know the expedition crew, onboard staff and feel passengers by name rather quickly. There are many more possibilities for one-on-one interactions during the cruise and while on land.

Expedition Team

A team of knowledgable and talented professionals is key to a successful expedition voyage, and you can count on Quark Expeditions to provide that. Their Expedition Team is made up of seasoned veterans with backgrounds in fields such as marine biology, history, glaciology, geology and more. With a high staff-to-guest ratio, Quark Expeditions will provide you with a truly memorable experience.
