Were Swoop right to recommend Quark Expeditions?


Tell us about the wildlife

The humpback whales and yes I got the pictures I wanted

Tell us about Zodiac excursions

Yes I felt safe even knowing there had been deaths the month prior. The humpback whale pod

Tell us about the expedition team

Yes they were all great! Neil and Abbey do an incredible job. Johann, Russ, Craig on the Zodiacs. Todd and Callum did a great job as well. Actually they all were awesome.

Tell us about the Ocean Adventurer

Beds were great! Food was awesome. Yes!

Something Else?

It would be my recommendation to just up the total cost of the entire excursion by $75-$100 and include “free” Wi-Fi instead of requiring each person to register and then a two cabin $150 or three cabin $225 cost and the Internet is very iffy. I would just say free Wi-Fi included. And provide a disclaimer of, “Please note it can be intermittent due to where the ship is currently located at any given time on the excursion”. Thanks!

Do you have any tips or advice for other people planning a trip to Antarctica?

Get prescription grade seasickness medicine it works quickly and does not make you drowsy like Dramamine or dry out your mouth like the patches.

Has your experience changed your perspective in any way?

I want to go to the Artic!

Do you have any recommendations for Swoop, or feedback about the team?

See above with regards to Wi-Fi
