2019 Saga Cruise applications are now open!
I am pleased to announce that Saga have once again offered ORCA Survey Team places on board their cruise ships for the 2019 season. These trips are on the Saga Sapphire and the Spirit of Discovery.
Saga cruises cater predominantly for individuals aged 50 years and over, however ORCA has special dispensation so our survey teams can include people from 21 years of age and above. Teams of four from ORCA have been invited on board Saga’s ships since 2007 and since then we have built up a reputation for enhancing the enjoyment of guests' trips and their understanding of marine wildlife through delivering presentations, running deck-watches whilst surveying and generally being on hand to talk about any wildlife seen on the trips. Many passengers book on specific cruises if they know an ORCA team is going to be on board.
To find out about the cruises and to apply please visit the Applying for Surveys page on the Surveyor Network. Please note applications will close at midnight on Sunday 4th November 2018.
We have now confirmed all the survey teams for 2018 across all routes, our 2019 ferry surveys will be open for application in the new year.
