Wildlife Watching Experience - Amsterdam to Newcastle

Learn all about the wildlife that lives in North Sea as you sail from Amsterdam to Newcastle with marine life charity ORCA and their fantastic wildlife experts. There are so many onboard activities for kids and adults alike to take part in.

Visit the brand new onboard ORCA Wildlife Lounge where you can learn even more about our aquatic neighbours and take in the spectacular North Sea views. The wildlife watching experience is free of charge and is available onboard KING Seaways from March-September. The most common sightings onboard include Harbour Porpoises, Minke Whales and White Beaked Dolphins.

Why not book one of our special Marine Wildlife mini cruises?
