ORCA in partnership with DFDS Seaways is happy to announce that there is a brand new dedicated Wildlife Centre on the King of Scandinavia this year. From April 4th until the 1st October there will be an ORCA Wildlife Education Officer providing whale and dolphin watching activities on board the ferry for all the passengers.
Hello my name is Kathryn I am one of the ORCA Wildlife Education Officers along with my team mate Stephanie. We are very pleased to be travelling with all the passengers onboard the King of Scandinavia between April and September this year. We will be looking out for whales, dolphins and porpoises as well as all the sea birds and any seals that pop up in The North Sea. We are both looking forward to some fantastic wildlife watching from the ferry with last year being particularly good for both Minke whales and Harbour porpoises.This year we have a brand new Wildlife Centre on board The King. The Centre will have all the information about the wildlife you can see out to sea and places you can visit too. We hope to inspire you to get involved in wildlife watching and to take part in some of the fun and interesting activities we will be providing.
In the Centre there is a children’s activity area where arts, crafts and fun learning activities will take place. We will also be making good use of the new observation lounge and getting out on deck to spot animals as much as possible.Both Stephanie and I have lots of marine wildlife experience and we are looking forward to talking to you about the marine world. It will be easy to find us. As soon as you board come to the sports lounge where there will be an introductory presentation. If we don’t see you there please come into the Wildlife Centre next to the shops. Here you can take a look at all of the displays, have a chat and find out what else is going on.
We look forward to meeting you.
