2019 Ferry Surveys

An update on the 2019 ferry survey applications. 

Dear All,

Many thanks for your applications for the 2019 ferry surveys.  All ferry applications (except for the Isles of Scilly routes) are now closed. 

The 2019 Isles of Scilly Surveys will remain open for application until midnight on Friday 8th March. This is a day sailing running on a Saturday, Sunday or Wednesday throughout March – October. To apply for these surveys please visit the Applying for Surveys page on the Surveyor Network.

We will be starting to put the teams together on a month by month basis and successful applicants for March and April surveys will be emailed over the upcoming weeks. Unfortunately, due to the high volume of applications, we are unable to individually email all unsuccessful applicants each month and we will keep everyone updated on the progress of surveys via the Surveyor Network News page.

For those that have not already purchased their ORCA Marine Mammal Surveyor polo-shirt you can do so via our online shop. Remember that you must wear an ORCA Marine Mammal Surveyor polo-shirt to be granted access to the bridge during surveys. Please note that you need to be signed into the Surveyor Network for the polo-shirt to be visible on the shop.

Please ensure that you have submitted a completed ORCA Marine Mammal Surveyor Form this year, which can be found on the Surveyor Network. Survey tickets are unable to be booked without this information and your application is invalid without this information.

ORCA would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support and dedication, without which we would not be able to conduct our vital conservation and education work.

With very best wishes,


Lucy Babey
Head of Science and Conservation 
Deputy Director
