Logbook 1999

In the summer of 1999 whales were spotted in 465 trips out of 467 = 99,6%.
In total, four species were spotted: harbour porpoises, white beaked dolphins, minke whales and 
sei whales.


Summary 1999
Minke whales in 434 of 467 93,7%
White beaked dolphins in 345 of 467 74%
Harbour porpoises in 121 of 467
Sei whales in 18 of 467 3,9%
Total: 465 of 467 99,6%


Please note: When it comes to calculating the success rate of trips, different companies have different methods, some more credible than others. As a rule of thumb, North Sailing's crews count trip as "unsuccessful" if nothing bigger than porpoises is seen during the tour. Also if for some reasons conditions to spot the whales are that hard that not every passenger sees the whales we do not count those trips as successful.
