BBC wildlife cameraman to join Sea Safari in 2018

Matt Brierley, whose credits include Blue Planet II and Planet Earth II, will be joining the trip on 11th September to talk about his experiences whilst helping passengers spot whales and dolphins.

Matt Brierley has worked as a cameraman, producer and director on a host of high profile wildlife projects.

ORCA's 11th September trip across the Bay of Biscay will have an extra special guest, with experienced wildlife cameraman Matt Brierley joining the team for our ever popular Sea Safari.

Matt has worked on a host of exciting projects, including Blue Planet II, Planet Earth II and Springwatch, and will be travelling from Portsmouth to Santander to talk to passengers about the incredible experiences he has had, as well as helping us showcase the wonderful wildlife of the Bay of Biscay.

The trip will be the first time that Matt, who also writes for magazines such as Birdwatching and Voyage, will be working with ORCA on one of our trips.

ORCA Director, Sally Hamilton, said: "It's fantastic to have a guest of Matt's calibre aboard one of our trips. With the experience he brings from the groundbreaking television he has been involved with, as well as his time working for some of the biggest conservation organisations in the world, Matt is going to add something very special to the trip later in the year."

ORCA have Sea Safari dates throughout 2018, with Matt joining us for the fifth of seven trips. Places are booking at a record pace, with some trips already close to selling out, so early booking is advisable. To find out more and book, visit our dedicated web page here.
