501C3 Charities Raise Funds and Promote Environmental Awareness Together!

“We don’t inherit the world from our fathers, we borrow it from our sons.”

Customized, private, community based tours of the Galapagos are not only a “Hot Ticket” item at fund raisers they also allow the winner/future visitors to experience the Galapagos as only the natives can present them, support truly sustainable economic practices within the community (farmers, fishermen, artists, etc.) while minimizing visitor impact on the environment. Because these tours are private they can be set up with almost limitless “add ons” (days, participants, activities, etc.) 

The Diveheart organization (diveheart.org) developing and promoting adaptive diving for people with physical and emotional challenges has used the following tour for fundraising, click here.
