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... This entire route provides an abundance of cetacean activity! From monitoring minke whales and fin whales through the Irish sea, and resident populations of bottlenose dolphins around the UK. The North Sea provides an excellent monitoring opportunity in a marine protected area important for harbour porpoises. The Shetland Islands is a perfect area for population monitoring or passing humpback whales, orcas, and Risso’s dolphins.
