Everything is coming together for Orca Watch 2022. Last minute preparations are going well, and it seems the orca are waiting for us – with many sightings in the area over the last few weeks.
If you’re not able to join us in person, you can still join in!
As we did in 2021 we will be bringing the excitement of Orca Watch into your home. (Subscribe to the Sea Watch You Tube channel and look for Orca Watch Live.)
Join us at home for our traditional Evening of Talks on Saturday 28th May, to help us launch Orca Watch. Livestreamed from the Pulteney Centre in Wick, the evening will feature a conversation with Hugh Harrop about the recent orca sightings, a talk about how experience at orca watch helped one Sea Watch alumni, Dr Chloe Robinson, develop a career in cetacean conservation, including working with the Southern Resident killer whales, and will close with the world première of a documentary film exploring how Steve Truluck, discovered his passion for helping others fulfil their dreams of seeing orcas.
If you can’t join on the night, the link in your ticket will stay live throughout Orca Watch week, to give you time to watch the programme.
Then, during the week, we’ll be broadcasting short evening roundups, on most nights, to fill you in on what we’ve seen. The programmes will then remain available to watch, via YouTube.

Finally, on Sunday 26th June, at 7.30pm, a few weeks after the end of Orca Watch week, we’ll be holding an online Orca Watch reunion, looking back at what was seen during Orca Watch 2022, sharing preliminary findings, and sharing experiences. Tickets for this event will be available from 6th June, after Orca Watch week has ended.
We look forward to ‘seeing’ you…
