Logbook 2002

In the summer of 2002 whales were spotted in 478 trips out of 481 = 99,4%.
In total, five species were spotted: harbour porpoises, white beaked dolphins, minke whales, 
sei whales, and humpback whales.


Summary 2002
Minke whales in 441 of 481
White beaked dolphins in 410 of 481
Humpback whales in 138 of 481
Harbour porpoises in 109 of 481  22,7%
Sei whales in 3 of 481
Total: 478 of 481


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.
