Galapagos Naturalist Guides

To this day, Quasar's Galapagos naturalist guides are handpicked by the company’s founders. We understand that guides are an elemental part of our adventures and that they truly make the difference between a 'good' and an 'exceptional' adventure. This is why our founders continue to hand-pick and carefully select only the most knowledgeable, professional and friendly naturalists in the region.

Our naturalists are professionals, with a firsthand experience of the destination, who provide you with an authentic understanding of the natural wonders you will explore every day. They are all very well versed in safety and first-aid, so you know you are in great hands while on your adventure.




As the second oldest cruise company in the Galapagos, we have over 3 decades of experience handpicking and training only the best Guides in the Islands. Many of the naturalist you find today working in other cruise companies were originally trained and educated in the Quasar school of Guides. Watch this video to learn what a great Galapagos guide is all about.

Meet Quasar's Guides

Our team of Naturalist Guides is made up of Galapagos locals with a special love for their home. Educated in the fields of conservation, biology, and wildlife, they bring passion, insider knowledge, and a gift for helping others learn to every expedition.

There’s a reason we capitalize the G in Guide. Our team of Naturalist Guides have earned their titles. Each team member has achieved the challenging, sought-after Level III Galapagos National Park Guide certification.

Their vast knowledge and knack for seeing what others don’t in Galapagos means every Quasar Guest experiences the very best of each destination.
