About Jake Morrison

Assistant Expedition Leader


Jake is in his element on the water. He started driving boats at age 5 and landed his first job at a marina by age 13. At 16, he fulfilled his childhood dream job of driving the water taxi at his family’s cottage. Jake first left North America during university, when he participated in an exchange at Copenhagen Business School. Two years later, he had visited all 7 continents.

Since joining Quark Expeditions in 2010, Jake has participated in over 30 expeditions to the Polar Regions. He recently returned “to the field” after working full time in Quark’s Toronto office for 6 years, where he participated in nearly every element of shore-side operations, from purchasing and logistics to port call operations and bunkering to expedition staff management.

Aside from traveling, Jake’s hobbies include kiteboarding, sailing, piloting small aircraft, cross-country skiing, catching up with family and friends, and meeting new people along the way.
