Ocean Diamond

The Ocean Diamond is a modern, stable super-yacht, and one of the largest of our small expedition ships. Carrying a maximum of 189 passengers, and with two stabilizers and an ice-strengthened hull, this outstanding vessel is ideal for polar expeditions.

As one of the newest, fastest, and most eco-friendly ships in Antarctica, it is also one of the most comfortable. There are 101 elegantly designed cabins and suites, all with exterior views, and expansive common spaces, a club lounge, and a spacious restaurant. The ship offers numerous adventure options, plus on-board features such as interactions with photography instructors. After a full day of exploration, passengers can relax, browse books or DVDs in the well-stocked polar library, or enjoy stunning polar scenery from the sun-lit, panoramic observation lounge.

Passengers traveling to one of the world's most remote destinations will also do so in a "greener” fashion; the Ocean Diamond is the first ship in Antarctica, and in polar travel history, to offer certified CarbonNeutral® voyages.

Sustentabilidade – A Quark se importa

A Quark Expeditions está profundamente comprometida com o turismo ambientalmente responsável. Como membro ativo da Associação Internacional das Operadoras de Turismo Antártico (IAATO), e da Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO) (Associação das Operadoras de Cruzeiros de Expedição Ártica)

há muito tempo a Quark segue diretrizes rigorosas destinadas a assegurar que as regiões polares permaneçam intocadas por muitas gerações.

Ocean Diamond promove a primeira viagem CarbonNeutral da história

A Quark fará a compensação de carbono com o Ocean Diamond, seu navio mais novo, portanto, promovendo a primeira viagem neutra em carbono para uma região polar do mundo. Aqueles que viajarem para a Antártica, um dos destinos mais incríveis e remotos do mundo numa experiência única na vida, terão a garantia de que terão uma experiência “verde” sem custo adicional. A Quark Expeditions vai compensar uma quantidade estimada de 5.682 toneladas de dióxido de carbono equivalente (CO2e), com projetos selecionados Carbono Neutro em energia hidrelétrica e eólica e reflorestamento na Turquia, no Quênia, na Índia e na China, sendo um deles projeto padrão-ouro.
