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.
