Introducing a New Way to Pay Your ORCA Bill
ORCA is rolling out our new billing payment options for ORCA activities and trips. Consumers are encouraged to try out two new options for payment. Monthly Deposits are the easiest way to stay on top of your ORCA bills. It is as easy as setting up monthly installments of $20, $50, $100, or any amount to your ORCA account. Extra money stays on your account as a credit to be used for future outings or trips. Pay at the Activity Bring cash or check with you and staff will write a receipt.
SAIL works hard to keep all activities and trips affordable through grants and fundraisers. While we ask that everyone do their part to help cover the costs associated with our program, additional scholarships are available for most activities (except multi-day trips).
