QUARK EX­PE­DI­TIONS 888-979-4073 quark­ex­pe­di­tions.com/en/antarc­tic#voy­ages Quark Ex­pe­di­tions’ Antarc­tic voy­ages de­part be­tween Nov. 5, 2017, and March 2, 2018. Cit­ing pas­sen­ger de­mand, Quark dropped its hy­brid cruise/fly pack­age. Op­tions are now just round-trip Drake Pas­sage cross­ings — two days at sea each way be­tween Ushuaia, Ar­gentina and Antarc­tica — or three-hour Drake fly­overs in and out be­tween Punta Are­nas, Chile, and King Ge­orge Is­land near Antarc­tica’s north­west penin­sula. Dou­ble Drake cross­ings on the Sea/Ocean Ad­ven­turer last 11 days, in­clud­ing a pre-and-post-voy­age ho­tel night in Ushuaia. This ba­si­cally means five days on and around the Antarc­tic Penin­sula and South Shet­land Is­lands. Prices range from $6,595 per per­son for a triple cabin ($600 per night) to $14,795 per per­son in the Owner’s Suite ($1,345 a night). Eight-day “Fly the Drake” trips in­clude flights from San­ti­ago to Punta Are­nas and back, five nights on the ship and the first and last nights in Punta Are­nas ho­tels. Prices range from $9,495 (or $1,356 a night) to $18,995 per per­son (or $2,714 per night).
