Quark Expeditions was born out of a mutual appreciation for the incredible Arctic landscape between two adventurers in 1991. Since then, the company has pioneered many firsts in polar expeditions and is proud to offer voyages to Antarctica, the Arctic Region and Galapagos Islands.
With Quark Expeditions, you’ll discover some of the earth’s last areas of true wilderness. The Quark fleet features small expedition ships that are nimble, yet comfortable, so that they can take passengers to even the most remote of places. Called ‘Polar Adventure Ships’, there are 8 vessels in the fleet and each is equipped with inflatable landing craft (Zodiacs) for easy shore transfers. Each ship carries fewer than 200 people and is equipped with ice-strengthened hulls to ensure that it can safely navigate the Arctic and Antarctic waters. Although these are small expedition ships, you can expect to feel right at home with comfortable facilities and a warm atmosphere on board.
Quark Expeditions also has a dedication to environmentally responsible tourism and practises eco-friendly initiatives to help preserve the natural beauty of the Polar Regions.
