Meet Shackleton and Scott aboard Quark Expeditions’ Ocean Diamond


Quark Expeditions, the leader in polar adventures, announces Jonathan Shackleton (cousin of Sir Ernest Shackleton) and Falcon Scott (grandson of Robert Falcon Scott) will be guest lecturers aboard the 11-day Antarctic Explorer voyage, departing February 9, 2013 from Ushuaia, Argentina.

Shackleton and Scott will join renowned Polar scientists, photographers and historians as part of a unique Expert-in-Residence program available exclusively aboard the Ocean Diamond. Their lectures will add an extra layer of interest and insight to the voyage and will afford passengers the opportunity to experience the expedition in an intimate and conversational environment.

Jonathan Shackleton is a leading expert on the life and achievements of Ernest Shackleton and authored Shackleton: An Irishman in Antarctica and The Shackletons of Ballitore (1580-1987). Falcon Scott maintains a longtime interest in the Antarctic and his grandfather’s expeditions, and recently spent more than one month in Antarctica working with New Zealand’s Antarctic Heritage Trust to weather-proof his grandfather’s famous expedition base hut.
