About Quasar Expeditions
HIGH-END ADVENTURE TRAVEL PIONEERS SINCE 1986 - 30th Anniversary!
In 1983, Eduardo Diez and Dolores Gangotena, a recently married Ecuadorian couple, set out on an adventurous voyage to the Enchanted Galapagos Islands aboard a small and very rustic 1902 Baltic trader. Never could they have imagined at the time of their voyage, that it would set the roots for the creation of Quasar Expeditions, one of the most sought after names in high-end adventure travel in Latin America. Recognized the world over by adventure travel connoisseurs and the luxury travel industry, Quasar pioneered high-end expedition cruising in the Galapagos Islands in 1986 and played an important role in establishing the Galapagos Archipelago as a must see destination for world travelers. The Quasar name is synonymous with its classic expedition yachts including M/Y Grace, with its rich history that includes being built for the tycoons of the roaring 20s, serving with distinction in British Navy during WWII and being presented as a gift by Aristotle Onassis to Prince Rainier of Monaco and his bride, Hollywood icon, Grace Kelly.
30 years later, Quasar Expeditions continues to inspire adventurous travelers from all over the world, now with its unique adventures in Wild Patagonia.
