Top Small-Ship Ocean Cruise Lines
Quasar expeditions was born as a family-driven entrepreneurship looking to show the Galapagos Islands to the world. In 2018, it was awarded with the first place in the ranking of small-ship ocean cruise lines of Travel+Leisure.
The aim of the company’s founders, Eduardo Diez and Dolores Gangotena, is to offer a sustainable option for tourists to visit the natural wonders but also to preserve them for the future generations.
Quasar’s 18-passenger ship Grace was the recipient of the recognition by Travel+Leisure. Originally, the vessel was the wedding gift from the shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis to the princess Grace of Monaco. The ship was then adapted for new duties and sails today searching for sea lions and sea turtles in the Galapagos Islands. Traveling in it turned so into a unique way to experience both history and environment.
