ORCA

ORCA is one of the UK’s leading whale and dolphin conservation charities, dedicated to the protection of whales, dolphins and porpoises around the world. Ocean Conservationists will be showcasing the incredible diversity of wildlife that can be spotted from the deck, helping everyone learn more about the marine environment around them whilst collecting vital data about whales, dolphins and porpoises to contribute to their protection. Whilst on board, the team will be delivering activities to help guests learn more about these amazing animals as well as the threats they face, including the Ambassador & ORCA pledge and the first ever cruise "Anti-whaling" campaign.

What to expect on this sailing... The Bay of Biscay is an incredibly productive area for a variety of whales, dolphins and porpoises. The area is particularly important for elusive beaked whales, and migrating fin whales. 

This is also an important area to monitor for the impacts of ship strikes - one of the biggest threats to large whales in the area.
