With our unique take on marine conservation, ORCA is a charity that’s

them during their voyage and show them the wonders of the ocean.

abundance of wildlife that can be spotted across Norway & Denmark;
encouraging passengers to help protect the whales and dolphins. This
education work is conducted through lectures, or other interactive
activities. In addition, you will be collecting scientific data based on
your sightings using the OceanWatchers app, data that contributes to the
protection of whales and dolphins.
