Antarctica 2013 – Save $1000 – Register by Aug 15th Antarctica Trip Feb 8-21, 2013 — South of the Antarctic Circle with 30 people-

August 6th, 2012 |  by No comments

 

Join us for our fifth trip to  Antarctica February 8-21, 2013  in this special digital photography workshop led by world renowned photographers – John Paul Caponigro and Seth Resnick. This time we will be heading South and crossing the Antarctic Circle which is truly a phenomenal experience. For the first time we’re offering a more intimate experience for fewer than 30 people – a small group within a larger group. You’ll be able to participate in all regularly scheduled public cruise events Quark Expeditions Sea Spirit, and in our private presentations. We’ll have Zodiacs dedicated to our photography group only with one instructor guiding each boat. We’ll work closely with the crew to shoot in the best times at the most beautiful places. Most importantly, we’ll work closely with you to help you make the most of the adventure and get the best results possible. You’ll benefit tremendously from our advice, guidance, demonstrations, lectures, reviews, special pre and post voyage webinars and one-on-one attention. Plus, we’re going on one of the most comfortable boats in the fleet. You’ll get world class locations, world class accommodations, and world class guidance.

Crossing The Antarctic Circle  & The Antarctic Penninsula

Few can say they’ve travelled past the Antarctic Circle to the last-explored and least-know realm on earth. Here’s your chance to join the select few who’ve crossed that final border, into a world where the sun never sets. This will be a trip of impossibly long sunsets as we approach the line where the sun only skims the horizon but is never lost from sight. We’re going late in the season so channels and bays that would otherwise have been ice-lock will be open to us and calving glaciers will be berthing icebergs the size of city-blocks. Penguin chicks will have hatched and will be moving from their nests. Seal and whales will be plentiful. We will try to even get to sail through the Gullet, a small channel our captain with over 20 years experience in the area navigated for the fourth time in his life in 2009. It was like floating past frozen clouds, which covered all but the sharp peaks of the mountains and dropped below the mirror-like surface of the water.)
Our Antarctica 2005, 2007, 2009, and 2011 workshops all sold out fast so don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity.
Registration is now available for our Antarctica 2013 Voyage.
Register by August 15 and save $1,000.
ITINERARY:


During our voyage south of the Antarctic Circle and back, we’ll visit the highlights of the Antarctic Penninsula – Deception Island (sailing into an active volcano), Paradise Bay (gliding in its mirror-like waters), Neko Harbor (walking above a calving glacier), Lemaire Channel (sailing through mountain peaks at sunset), Plenneau Bay (exploring an iceberg graveyard) and many more.
Having made four voyages, we find ways to improve our Antarctica experiences each time and are dedicated to making this the best trip yet.
Map
Itinerary
Day 1 – Ushuaia, Argentina??
You will begin your journey in Ushuaia, a small, but bustling port town at the tip of South America.  This Argentinean town is an ideal gateway for you to explore the southern extent of Patagonia while preparing for your adventure ahead. Get active in the mountains or enjoy some hand crafted chocolate in town.
Day 2 – Embarkation Day??
The Beagle Channel sets you on your way as the ship sails in the late afternoon. The channel opens up to the vastness of the southern ocean, where your next land sighting will be along the Antarctic Peninsula.  Named after the famed ship in which Charles Darwin voyaged, the channel presents many great photo opportunities to capture sea birds hovering overhead.
Day 3-4 – Crossing the Drake Passage??
The waters of the Drake Passage are unpredictable, so hope for clear skies and a calm ocean. You’ll have plenty of time to stare out at the sea, get to know your fellow shipmates and chat with your Expedition Team. ??Time over these two days will be spent preparing for the exciting days ahead, with numerous educational and informative lectures from your Expedition Team. You’ll learn about everything from safety procedures to the history of whaling in Antarctica.
?Day 5-8 – Exploring the Peninsula??
With the Drake Passage left in our wake, we make a final approach to Antarctica.  Get your cameras ready, as the continent’s coastline will make its first appearance, signaling the start of your adventure in the realm of the Antarctic.  You’ll see plentiful icebergs floating by and be fixated on the surface of the ocean as curious whales spout and breach before your eyes.  ??As exciting as it can be from onboard the ship, your true exploration occurs when you disembark and set foot on the great continent.  There are several potential landing sites we may visit, including Neko Harbor  , Petermann Island, or Pleneau Island.  While weather dictates which specific landing sites we can visit, each one presents a new collection of wildlife and natural attractions. ??Your days will be busy spotting wildlife and being mesmerized by the beauty of Antarctica. Watching penguins waddling on the beach and listening to the crackling and crumbling sounds of icebergs and glaciers will become your daily entertainment, while kayaking with whales and camping in Antarctica are a couple of extra activities you’ll want to book ahead of time and experience at least once.
Day 9-10 – The Antarctic Circle
Crossing the Antarctic Circle is an impressive achievement, as most expeditions to the Peninsula do not reach 66° 33’ S. You and your shipmates will celebrate in style with a well-earned glass of champagne!??With a toast to the first explorers who ventured this far south, you can take pride in knowing you’ve made it to a part of the world still visited by very few people. This is raw Antarctica, a special area that you’ll experience during the midnight sun if you’re on our first voyage of the season.
Day 11-12 – Northbound Along the Peninsula
If you haven’t had your fill of Antarctic wildlife and icebergs by now, you’ll surely be satisfied by the time we return to the Drake Passage. We’ll continue to journey onto land and out by Zodiac twice daily as we travel north along the western Peninsula. Your Expedition Team will also be on the lookout for any species of penguins, seals and whales that may have eluded you on the journey south.
?Day 13-14 – Drake Passage to Ushuaia
Re-crossing the Drake, Antarctica fades away and you’ll be left with a collection of memories to last a lifetime. Excited conversations with your newfound  friends will make the time passing the Drake Passage fly by, independent of weather and sea conditions . Your Expedition Team will round up their series of lectures as well, perhaps with a slideshow of some of the great landing sites and wildlife you’ve visited over the course of your voyage.
?Day 15 – Disembark in Ushuaia, Argentina??
Today you’ll say goodbye to your Expedition Team and your fellow travelers.  You’ll disembark in the morning so that you may catch your homeward bound flights.???Important reminder: Embracing the unexpected is part of the legacy – and excitement – of expedition travel. There are no guarantees that we can achieve everything we set out to accomplish. A measure of flexibility is something all of us must bring to a voyage. There are nearly 200 recognized sites in the Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetlands and the places mentioned above may be changed to others equally as interesting.

Read what other photographers have to say…

I attended the webinar last night — you guys are so efficient, to the point, informational and super approachable — as always!  I feel lucky to have a training source like this.

 

– Inga Peterson, photographer
The insight you guys provide is academic and hands on – the difference between using a tool and knowing what a tool does. You guys describe the important factors of how a tool works better than anyone out there. The accessibility of the webinars doesn’t hurt either.
