Mix ‘n mingle in Antarctica with explorers, past and present.

Both Jonathan and Falcon will be on four Quark voyages during the 2013.14 Antarctic season. Break bread with Jonathan and Falcon while onboard and explore this incredible continent by Zodiac, on land, by ship as they recount exciting stories from their ancestors as well as their own experience being in the place that has shaped their lives over a hundred years ago.
