Transcending Through Expedition: Dr. Sian Proctor Named Godmother of Ultramarine in Quark Expeditions’ Exciting Announcement


Quark Expeditions Announces Dr. Sian Proctor as Godmother for Ultramarine: An Extraordinary Partnership

Quark Expeditions, the leader in polar adventures, is delighted to introduce Dr. Sian Proctor as the godmother of their new expedition ship, Ultramarine. Join Dr. Proctor onboard for a remarkable journey to Antarctica’s legendary Snow Hill in November 2023. As the ship’s godmother, Dr. Proctor continues the maritime tradition of celebrating strong women for the ship’s good fortune and safe passage at sea. However, just as Ultramarine pushes boundaries on its polar expeditions, Dr. Proctor goes beyond tradition and expectations.

“We are thrilled to have found an extraordinary partner in Dr. Sian Proctor for Ultramarine,” said Andrew White, President of Quark Expeditions. “Together, we will transcend the traditional role of a godmother, not just as a leader onboard Ultramarine, but also in supporting our company’s work and teams worldwide.”

Dr. Sian Proctor embodies Ultramarine’s spirit of going deeper and farther. She is a trailblazer, an astronaut who has explored the world’s most remote regions, and the first Black woman to pilot a spacecraft.

“When I saw our polar regions from space, I knew I wanted to make them part of my work,” shared Dr. Sian Proctor. “There is no better place than the far edges of the planet to expand our awareness of a just, equitable, diverse, and inclusive society.”

As an advocate for inclusivity, capability, and a geoscience expert, Dr. Proctor understands the strength of individuals and the unifying power of the landscapes they share. Her artistic and educational background illuminates Ultramarine’s capabilities for polar explorers, utilizing stories and images to inspire ambassadors worldwide.

Quark Expeditions invites explorers to join Dr. Proctor onboard Ultramarine for the special Emperor Penguin Quest: Expedition to Snow Hill voyage on November 24, 2023. Contact the company’s polar travel advisors for more details.

Fun Fact: Quark Expeditions was the first to land at Antarctica’s Snow Hill in 2004, thanks to an astronaut’s planetary observations while in orbit. Encounter a remarkable wildlife spectacle with 4,000 pairs of breeding Emperor penguins and their chicks—a truly rare experience!

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
