Quark Expeditions was founded in 1991 when the founders took the first group of commercial travellers to the North Pole. Since then Quark Expeditions has taken travellers on polar expeditions to remote parts of the Arctic and Antarctic where no one else has set foot. As the market evolves and mature over the years, Quark Expeditions continue to push the boundaries in polar expeditions. Choose to fly across the Drake Passage, catch the Northern Lights while searching for polar bears or venture to Russia Arctic – the options are endless.
Quark Expeditions will soon operate 6 vessels of various comfort level but all of which take fewer than 200 passengers. The latest addition Quark Ultramarine will be equipped with two twin-engine helicopters, 20 quick-launching Zodiacs, spacious suites, wellness amenities and numerous outdoor wildlife viewing spaces.
