2020 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 2020 season. These trips are on the Saga Sapphire, Spirit of Discovery and Spirit of Adventure.
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 10th November 2019.
We have now confirmed all the survey teams for 2019 across all routes, and we are currently working on the ferry survey dates for 2020 and will be in touch as soon as we can about these.
With warm wishes,
Head of Science and Conservation
