Xavier Garcia was born in Ambato, Ecuador; nevertheless he considers himself a young Galápagueño since his parents and him moved to San Cristóbal when he was only six years old. When he was a child he dreamed about being a guide, even role playing as a guide with his friends. On several occasions he led groups of tourists visiting “La Loberia,” and the old museum at San Cristóbal.

Xavier’s interest eventually turned to Communication and Media, so he started working on radio projects, and then moved to Guayaquil to study audiovisual production. After some years working in this field in Quito and Guayaquil, at the age of 26 he moved back to the Galápagos to become a Galápagos National Park Naturalist Guide in 2009.

Very excited to work in the conservation of the archipelago, he started working as part of the Galápagos National Park Directorate staff. For five years he was in charge of gathering the images and experiences of the Galápagos National Park Directorate conservation work. He brings his fascination and love for the islands, his experience as a photographer and audiovisual producer, and his knowledge of the Galápagos to your Silversea experience.
