Is Antarctica on your “Bucket List” but heard horror stories of the rough waters crossing the Drake Passage or just don’t have a lot of time to cruise. Have we got the itinerary for you.
Quark Expeditions offers an Antarctica Fly & Cruise itinerary. This is the perfect expedition for people short of time and reluctant to cross the Drake on a ship. The Drake Passage crossing is reduced to two hours by flying from Punta Arenas, Chile, to King George Island in the South Shetlands. You save 100 hours of sailing time, when compared to traditional Antarctic Peninsula cruises.
A quick crossing doesn’t reduce the time you spend in Antarctica. The ship explores the Peninsula for 5-days, the same amount of time as any other expedition.
