SAGA is our longest standing cruise partner spanning over a decade, and was the first to take our dedicated teams further across oceans to collect essential scientific data on whales, dolphins and porpoises (collectively known as cetaceans). With ORCA’s teams and guests learning more about the world’s oceans and its inhabitants, SAGA is enabling and contributing to the research and conservation of these wonderful creatures and their habitats.
ORCA’s trained teams of four volunteer experts are on board specially selected SAGA cruises, inspiring and informing guests with lectures and wildlife watches on deck. SAGA’s cruise ships offer a superb viewing platform to take in the oceanic wilderness, with forward-facing spacious decks offering a panoramic view of the ocean and animals both ahead and all around. The smaller cruise ships in SAGA’s fleet get guests closer to the water, better enabling you to see these charismatic animals.
