Marine Mammal Surveyor Sea Safari 2020

We are delighted to announce the date of our 2020 Marine Mammal Sea Safari! 

From Tuesday 6th October - Thursday 8th October 2020, we will once again be running a very special edition of our Sea Safari trips exclusively for ORCA Marine Mammal Surveyors. 

This trip will give our most loyal supporters a chance to catch up with friends old and new whilst enjoying one of the most vibrant and exciting marine spaces ORCA visit – the Bay of Biscay. The Sea Safari will follow the same itinerary as our ever popular Sea Safaris, with the ship leaving Portsmouth on Tuesday 6th October and returning to Plymouth on Thursday 8th October. 

Up on deck all day, you’ll have the chance to catch up with friends as well as chatting to ORCA staff about our research, the organisation structure, membership, our corporate partnerships and plenty of more besides! You’ll also have the chance to ask those burning questions about being a surveyor, whether that’s getting extra training on Logger or having the chance to dig a little bit deeper in to our policy work.

We want as many people as possible to be able to join us and have been able to secure a very low price for berths compared to our standard Sea Safari pricing:

One person sharing a 2 berth cabin - £145 per person


  • Once you have booked, you will be allocated a space in a same sex cabin AT RANDOM. We are unable to accommodate requests for individually booked spaces to share with specific people.
  • If you would like to share with a specific person, you must both book places at the same time in one single booking. 
  • All guests booking on the trip must be an active ORCA Marine Mammal Surveyor who is a current ORCA member.
  • All passengers must have a valid passport and be able to travel to Spain on the dates of the trip.
  • Places are limited and subject to availability. Due to deposits and cabin costs, bookings are non-refundable within 60 days of the departure date of the trip.
  • Guests are responsible for their own travel insurance and travel to Portsmouth and from Plymouth. Unfortunately, due to limited space, no free parking will be available for guests.

To book, you can visit the dedicated page on the ORCA shop here – you will need to be logged into the Surveyor Network to access this item on the shop.

We only have a limited number of places and we are expecting this to book very quickly, so we’d encourage you to book as soon as possible! 

We hope you will be able to join us next year, and look forward to seeing you all soon!

Best wishes

The ORCA team
