New Expeditions Added: Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctica via Buenos Aires
The inaugural voyage of the season aboard the Sea Spirit offers passengers an unprecedented experience.

Curated by North America’s largest documentary festival, Hot Docs, this on-board festival will feature a diverse documentary film program set against the remote beauty of Antarctic waters. The journey starts on November 1, 2013 on the Sea Spirit.
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.
