Since 2007, teams of four Marine Mammal Surveyors have been invited onboard Saga’s ships and we have built up a reputation for enhancing the enjoyment of guests' trips and their understanding of marine wildlife.
In the 2018 State of European Cetaceans report, we featured research by Kimberly Nielsen, who was completing a Masters at Plymouth University, using ORCA data investigate harbour porpoise distribution and drivers. This research has now been published in a new paper!
Here at ORCA we love to see our volunteer Marine Mammal Surveyors becoming friends and keeping in touch after meeting on surveys and cruises, so were thrilled when we heard that Charlotte and Terry were getting married after meeting on an ORCA trip! Read on to find out their story.
CalMac passengers have been experiencing some great encounters with wildlife this month, from puffins to minke whales, and our luck with the weather has continued into August with only the odd day of rain and wind, very unusual for Scotland!
