2020 Ferry Surveys

The 2020 Ferry Survey Applications are now open! 

Dear All,

I am pleased to announce that the 2020 ORCA Ferry Survey applications are now open!

This year we will once again have surveys taking place with Brittany Ferries, DFDS, Northlink and CalMac, and excitingly a new route with P&O Ferries! We will also have Isles of Scilly surveys taking place and these will be open for application in the upcoming weeks. 

To apply for these surveys please visit the Applying for Surveys page on the Surveyor Network.

 Please note you will not be considered for any surveys if you have not completed and sent in an ORCA Marine Mammal Surveyor Form. You only need to fill out and send an ORCA Marine Mammal Surveyor Form if you have never submitted one to ORCA before or if any information has changed from your previously submitted form. This can be found on the Surveyor Network and needs to be emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

If you have not yet purchased your ORCA Marine Mammal Surveyor polo shirt you can do this via our online shop. You will not be permitted access to the bridge without wearing your ORCA polo shirt. Please note that you need to be logged into the Surveyor Network for the polo shirt to be visible on the shop as these are exclusively for our Marine Mammal Surveyors.

Applications close at midnight on Sunday 9th February and we will keep you all informed of the progress of the survey teams via the Surveyor Network news page.

The Saga cruise teams are being compiled at present and if you are offered a place you will receive an email from us with details of the cruise. We have currently finalised the Saga teams for up until June 2020 and will be working on allocating the rest of the cruises in the coming weeks. We will continue to keep all Surveyors updated on the progress of the Saga team allocation via the Surveyor Network News. We look forward to your applications,

Best wishes
