Ferry survey applications

A reminder that the 2020 ferry survey applications close at midnight on Sunday 9th February! 

Dear All,

Just a quick reminder that applications for the 2020 ferry surveys close at midnight on Sunday 9th February. This year we will once again have surveys taking place with Brittany Ferries, DFDS, NorthLink, CalMac and a brand new route with P&O Ferries.  We will also have surveys with Isles of Scilly Travel, which will be open for application in the coming weeks. 

To apply for a survey 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 personal 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.

We will keep you all informed of the progress of the survey teams via the Surveyor Network news page.

We look forward to receiving your applications.

Best wishes,
