Whatever your preferred travel style, Quark has a diverse fleet of modern ships to ensure every passenger experiences true comfort and maximum enjoyment while on an expedition.
Polar-passionate team members with rich backgrounds in marine biology, history, geology and more will deliver a truly enriching experience. With under 200 passengers onboard, Quark offers one of the highest staff-to-guest ratios in the expedition world. And that means more expert guidance for your trip-of-a-lifetime, not to mention you'll be spending time with some of the most fascinating people on the planet!
