The polar travel company Quark Expeditions embarked on its first cruise of the Antarctic 2022-2023 season on November 1, 2022, with the 11-day "Antarctic Explorer: Discovering the 7th Continent" itinerary.

Guests on the polar voyage sailed out of homeport Ushuaia (Argentina) on Quark's newest ship - Ultramarine.

Wendy Batchelor (Quark's VP of Marketing) said their Expedition Team was especially excited to welcome tourists back to the Antarctic Peninsula.

"Our impressive collection of Antarctic trips offers something for every type of traveler, who also get to enjoy superb onboard amenities on the technologically-advanced Ultramarine."

Quark Expeditions offers the largest portfolio of off-ship adventures in the Polar Regions, ranging from Exclusive Heli Landing and Alpine heli-trekking to Zodiac boat cruising and land camping. Equally appealing, "guests get to do it all with the most seasoned expedition team in the industry, some of whom have 20-plus years of experience," according to Batchelor.
