Ultramarine helicopter operations

Recommended Posts

On the Ultramarine itineraries, are all of the flightseeing operations and helicopter transfers included in the rate? Does this vary by itinerary? I've looked at a few different Arctic and Antarctic trips but couldn't find the helicopter operations listed in either the list of what's included or the list of what's not included.

 

Also, in the Adventure Options listings, what does the "Helicopter_Black" icon image.png.5c90820c4ccbfacd74ceac0dacb98a86.png indicate, and what is this one depicting: image.png.a369e18a6a6b4f37beceeb6f34815e32.png?

Just an FYI, @kaisatsu, that the folks from Quark Expeditions had finished answering questions last week.  They may or may not be available to answer this one at this time.

Ah. Since they replied yesterday, I thought it was worth a shot. Oh, well.

Hi @kaisatsu, we got you, apologies for the delayed response! 

Flightseeing is an included activity on most Ultramarine departures (the outliers are destinations where helicopter flights are not permitted. e.g. Spitsbergen). There are other included helicopter activities such as Heli-Landing, we recommend you check out each expedition to get a better idea. We've added a screenshot of where you can find what's included vs paid on our expedition pages below. 


The regular helicopter icon refers to the included Flightseeing activity. The second icon you referred depicts our Exclusive Heli-Landing Adventure Option (paid) on some of our Antarctic Expeditions, including the Essential Patagonia voyages, where you'll be flying into locations only accessible via helicopters in groups of 12 guests. Each Heli-Landing experience is uniquely curated by our Expedition Team, taking conditions and location capacity into consideration.

Ultramarine's helicopters will not only allow us to provide Flightseeing and Heli-Hiking opportunities to our guests but also Adventure Options such as Alpine Kayaking, exploring the Greenland Ice Sheet, Mountain Biking and much more. This has allowed us to create the innovative Greenland Adventure voyages, you can check them out here.

 

Let us know if you have any additional questions and have a good one!
