We have surveys confirmed with our longstanding partners Brittany Ferries and Isles of Scilly Travel on the following routes:

Plymouth – Santander (Bay of Biscay)

Plymouth – Roscoff

Poole – Cherbourg

Penzance – St Mary’s (Isles of Scilly)

Full details of the surveys, how to apply and what is required of ORCA volunteers on board can be found on the Applying for Surveys page on the Surveyor Network.

Please note applications will close at 11pm on Sunday 6th March 2022 and we will keep you all informed of the progress of the survey teams via the Surveyor Network News page.

We are continuing to liaise with our other ferry partners to provide more surveying opportunities for you and as soon as more routes and dates are confirmed we will let you know.

With very best wishes,
