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).
