Join us aboard a lavish vessel for our most extreme cruises in Antarctica and Greenland.
Out Adventures returns to Antarctica aboard an all-new ship – The Ultramarine – in 2024. In fact, we were so impressed by this vessel that we’ll climb aboard for another, all-new cruise to explore the coast of Greenland at the other end of the world. Whichever frosty foray might warm the cockles of your heart (why not both?!), here’s a preview of the luxurious boat that will get us through the most rugged cruises Out Adventures has ever offered.
We’ve held 22 cabins for up to 44 fellows on these gay-friendly voyages (the boat holds up to 199 guests in total). As the newest boat in Quark Expeditions’ fleet, it offers breathtaking public spaces and more outdoor wildlife viewing opportunities than any other expedition ships its size. It also serves up best-in-class operational range and sustainability features that exceed industry standards.
Onboard helicopters take sightseeing to new heights
Onboard helicopters! This is definitely our favourite feature of the boat. Not one, but two, twin-engine helicopters will open up otherwise inaccessible bays and mountaintop glaciers for our daily adventures. Short “flightseeing” trips of 10-15 minutes are included in the voyages and helicopter landing excursions are also available as an optional add-on (weather permitting).
