I’m originally from France, but have been livingin Ecuador for more than a decade. I studied tourism and worked in France in ski stationsin winter and on the coast for the summer seasons.
I then had the chance to work for a tour operator in Quito and later in Galapagos, where I founded Sharksky with the idea of creating superior services and direct tours that would also benefit the local community.
I work in sales, so I am often your first contact when emailing or calling us. I enjoy putting together the perfect tour for you according to your wishes and interests! It’s my pleasure to work on an itinerary until we find the ideal one for you. Galapagos is a once in a lifetime experience!
In my free time I enjoy going snorkelling and bodyboarding. I’m also now a mum, so I enjoy seeing my little boy grow up in such an amazing environment.
I am from Switzerland and came to Galapagos Islands 6 years ago as a volunteer. I fell in love with the Enchanted Islands immediately and kept coming back for several weeksevery year. I have been working forSharksky Ecoadventures Galapagos in human resources (with staff and guides) since July 2015, ensuring everything in the agency runs smoothly.
I speak Swiss-German, German, English and Spanish fluently and understand French (even though I’ve forgotten how to speak it.) Better to just say ‘I understand French’ and stop at that!)
It is great to work for a company that focuses on ecotourism which supports local boats, hotels, and restaurants who mainly employ local Galapagueños residents.
What I love most about our work is welcomingtourists from all over the world and ensuring that they(not will have) have an unforgettable time on Galapagos Islands.
I’m originally from (not ‘the’)mainland Ecuador but Inow live between Galapagos and Switzerland, where my wife is from and where my daughter now lives. I’ve been working for Sharksky since 2013 and you will meet me when you arriveon the island of Santa Cruz. I help ensure that you given the best tips and advice for your stay on this island, whichI know inside out (or ‘like the back of my hand’) so that you may enjoy “my” island as its best!
I speak Spanish, German and English.
I’m half French and half British and I will be your contact on Isabela Island. I got to know the Galapagos while doing a 3 month internship for my tourism studies. Once I graduated, I got the opportunity to come back to the Galapagos to work.
I’ve been living on Isabela Island since June 2015 working as the operations manager for Sharksky. I ensure that everything goes smoothly for my customers and love seeing them take home great memories.I speak English, French and Spanish fluently (and understand a little Italian??)
In my free time I surf and dive – I’m a shark lover!Every day is such a pleasure for me to be able to share with our visitors thisbeautiful island with all the (not ‘these) amazing endemic animals that you will find here.(or ‘that are found here’)
