About Alex McNeil

Director of Expedition Experience and Innovation

In his role as Director of Expedition Experience and Innovation at Quark Expeditions Alex has attempted to redefine what modern exploration means, pioneer a new engagement ethos with remote communities, and strike a balance between tourism growth and the environmental changes we are surrounded by. 

Over the past decade Alex has completed over 100 polar expeditions including 14 expeditions to the Geographic North Pole. He has sailed on fourteen different expedition vessels, icebreakers, and completed trips by land and aircraft. Through his travels he has developed a strong passion for the polar regions, the people who live and work in the Arctic and Antarctic, and inspiring people to travel there. 

Alex’s creative and collaborative approach to product development has led to the creation of Quark’s industry-first Greenland Adventure itineraries, our immersive Tundra to Table program, and the extensive portfolio of helicopter activities offered aboard Ultramarine.
