Logbook 2010

In the summer of 2010 whales were spotted in 878 trips out of 914 = 96%.

In total, five species were spotted: harbour porpoises, white beaked dolphins, minke whales, blue whales and humpback whales.


Summary 2010
Minke whales in 759 of 914 83%
White beaked dolphins in 462 of 914 51%
 Harbour porpoises in 244 of 914 27%
Humpback whales in 104 of 914 12%
 Blue whales in 40 of 914
 Total: 878 of 914 96%


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.
