The Ocean Endeavour is classed as small expedition ship, but it’s got all the features you’d expect of a modern, dedicated polar vessel. The ship has an ice-strengthened hull, Zodiacs for exploration and day excursions, generous deck space, two restaurants and all the latest navigation equipment. Endeavour is also the only polar adventure ship in Antarctica focused on health and wellness. From the newly built saunas, to the pool, gym, hot tub and wellness café with a juice bar, it’s a warmer reception than you’d expect in the Arctic. The ship also has a Polar Boutique, where guests can buy gifts as well as gear they might need for the voyage.
The Ocean Diamond is an exceptional polar vessel, designed to give passengers the ultimate experience of exploring the Antarctic, within the comfort of a cruising yacht with additional amenities such as a massage and wellness programme, as well as a well-stocked polar library. All cabins boast exterior views, as well as en-suite bathroom facilities. There are also optional camping, kayaking, snowshoeing, skiing and mountaineering options available depending on conditions.
Designed to carry passengers in comfort and convenience to the furthest corners of the globe, Ocean Nova still manages to deliver a clean, crisp Scandinavian design that harks back to its Danish origins. Its ice-strengthened hull allows it to cruise the ice-choked waters of the Polar regions in safety, while the chef-prepared meals on board, polar library and glass-enclosed observation lounge add a touch of refinement. There’s also Zodiac boats for day excursions, optional kayaking and snowshoe hire on-board, everything the budding explorer needs.
The sturdy, 117 passenger Sea Adventurer, plies the waters of the Antarctic and the Arctic. With the highest ice rating in our fleet, she is a perfect platform for wildlife viewing and getting into those hard to reach places. Boasting a beautiful wooden promenade deck, forward facing lounge and bar, and window lined dining room, you will be able to soak in the surroundings no matter where you are on board. And like all our vessels, the Sea Adventurer is equipped with zodiacs to get you ashore and on board experts to help you understand all of the wonders that the Polar regions has to offer.
Our polar trips score an average of 5 out of 5 based on 1 review in the last year.
Fantastic trip, well worth the hefty price. Quark does an excellent job. Guides and staff are stellar. They go above and beyond to make your Antarctic Peninsula wishlist sightings come true. I wish there was a bare bones option for a ship with basic lodging and food, but I have to admit that the cushy environment and fantastic meals were pretty welcome after a busy day of playing out in the wilds of Antarctica!
