Ultra-luxury cruise line Silversea has formed a partnership with the UK marine conservation charity ORCA – enabling marine conservation experts to share their expertise with passengers.
Passengers can discover, engage and contribute to marine conservation work by helping to collect critical sightings of whales, dolphins and porpoises.
ORCA conservationists will travel on board select voyages, complementing Silversea’s enrichment programme by sharing their knowledge of marine life. The charity has championed marine conservation for more than 15 years.
“We strongly believe when guests travel with Silversea they become ambassadors for both the destinations and wildlife across the globe. Silversea is committed to responsible cruising and with our guests will ensure that generations to come can enjoy the wonders of our oceans,” said Erin Johnson, Silversea Marketing Director, UK and Ireland.
Lucy Babey, ORCA Head of Science & Conservation, said: “The entire ORCA team are incredibly excited to be working with Silversea Cruises, and this partnership will allow us to reach parts of the world we have never visited.”
The whale watching voyages in partnership with ORCA complement the extensive Silversea enrichment programme. Through Silversea’s partnerships with Accademia Teatro alla Scala, The Peninsula Hotels and Royal Geographical Society with IBG, renowned artists, experts and guest speakers travel on select voyages enhancing the guest experience.
Conservationists from ORCA will travel on board voyages on the Silver Explorer from 2 and 13 May and the Silver Muse, on May 12 and 27 May from various departure points. For more information visit www.silversea.com/whale-watching-voyages.html
