I want to map sampling locations. The coordinates are in decimal format in an Excel file. How do I import the Excel file into ArcGIS for mapping the sample locations. Further is there a source of base maps over which to position the sampling locations. I am especially interested in ocean basin maps created by NOAA.

Excel To Table—Conversion toolbox | Documentation 

then

XY Table To Point—Data Management toolbox | Documentation 

make sure you define the coordinate system of the points

It gets easier, once the jargon becomes familiar
