Quark Expeditions has announced full details of the company’s Antarctic 2013/14 season.

New Expeditions

Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctica: Explorers and Kings
The inaugural voyage of the season aboard the Sea Spirit offers passengers an unprecedented experience. Departing from Buenos Aires, the 22-day voyage offers passengers the Floating Polar Film Festival. Curated by North America’s largest documentary festival, Hot Docs, this on-board festival will feature a diverse documentary film programme set against the remote beauty of Antarctic waters. The journey starts on November 1.

Antarctic Express: Crossing the Circle
Quark’s newest fly-cruise voyage offers passengers all the incredible experiences and bragging rights of crossing the Antarctic Circle, in less time than a typical voyage. This new 11-day expedition (instead of the usual 15) departs on December 22 and will have passengers celebrating New Year’s Eve aboard the Sea Adventurer.

Crossing the Circle via Falklands & South Georgia: Epic Antarctica
For those looking for the ultimate Antarctic experience, there is now a 23-day ‘do it all’ expedition on Sea Adventurer which departs February 3, 2014. This extensive itinerary offers travellers a chance to see seven species of penguins and more than 30 species of birds while visiting the “Galapagos of the Poles.” This is the only voyage available taking passengers to the Falklands and South Georgia as well as across the Antarctic Circle to the Peninsula.

The largest of Quark’s fleet, the super-yacht Ocean Diamond, is back for its second season of Carbon Neutral voyages. The ship features unparalleled comfort and stability, with passengers able to enjoy a massage and wellness programme, the largest Polar library, in-room flat screen TV and DVD player and each cabin offers exterior views and en-suite bath. An all-inclusive beverage package is also available on this ship.
