It's Official: Quark Expeditions is Heading Back to the Antarctic starting November 25!

SEATTLE, Oct. 15, 2021 /CNW/ -- Quark Expeditions, the global Leader in Polar Adventures, has confirmed it will resume polar voyages to Antarctica in November, starting  with the inaugural voyage of its game-changing new vessel Ultramarine. Quark Expeditions is proud to be one of the first polar operators to return to the Antarctic.

"We're beyond thrilled to make it official: It's all systems go for our Antarctic season to launch on November 25, 2021, now that Argentina is opening up its ports and airports to international travelers on November 1," said Thomas Lennartz, Vice President of Sales at Quark Expeditions. "And we're doubly excited because our highly-anticipated Antarctic 21/22 season will also be the inaugural sailing season of our technologically-advanced ship Ultramarine, whose maiden voyage will the specially-curated Solar Eclipse 2021: Totality in Antarctica, with South Georgia expedtion."

While many itineraries in Quark Expeditions' Antarctic 21/22 season have sold out already, cabins are still available on two one-of-a-kind voyages:

? Essential Patagonia: Chilean Fjords and Torres del Paine: Retrace Charles Darwin's epic voyage to the "edge of the world" on a 15-day journey into Chile's spectacular network of fjords and channels.

? Celebrating Shackleton: Journey from Antarctica to South Georgia: This 20-day voyage follows in the footsteps of Sir Ernest Shackleton's Trans-Antarctic Expedition (1914?1917), including Elephant Island and wildlife-rich South Georgia.

"All of the voyages in our Antarctic 21/22 season are designed to fulfill the pent-up desires of travelers who've long dreamed about exploring the Polar Regions," said Lennartz. "Thanks to Ultramarine's two twin-engine helicopters, 20 quick-deploy Zodiacs, superb onboard amenities?including a spa with floor-to-ceiling windows?and the largest portfolio of off-ship adventure activities in the industry, our guests will celebrate their return-to-travel in the most memorable way possible."
