Isles of Scilly Survey update

A reminder that applications for the 2020 Isels of Scilly surveys close at midnight on Sunday! 

Dear All,

Just a quick reminder that applications for the 2020 Isles of Scilly ferry surveys close at midnight on Sunday 23rd February. Please do not leave your applications to the last minutes as we are not in the office over the weekend to deal with any account problems on the Surveyor Network.

We will once again have 16 surveys on this route from Penzance to St Mary’s on the Isles of Scilly Scillonian III. This is ORCA’s second highest diversity survey route so provides an opportunity to experience different cetacean species and is also ideal for those requiring at sea experience and to become fully familiar with the ORCA Survey protocol. 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 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 team allocations via the Surveyor Network News page.

We look forward to receiving your applications.

Best wishes,


Lucy Babey
