Alex McNeil

Quark Expeditions
Director of Expedition Experience and Innovation

In his role as Director of Expedition Innovation and Experience at Quark Expeditions Alex McNeil has attempted to redefine what modern exploration means, to pioneer a new engagement ethos with remote communities, and to strike a balance between tourism growth and the environmental changes we are surrounded by. Over the past decade Alex has personally led 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, for the people who live and work in the Arctic and Antarctic, and for inspiring people to travel there.
