In the summer of 2001 whales were spotted in 473 trips out of 474 = 99,8%.
In total, nine species were spotted: harbour porpoises, white beaked dolphins, minke whales, killer whales, fin whales, sei whales, northern bottlenosed whales, blue whales and humpback whales.
|Minke whales in 452 of 474||95,4%|
|White beaked dolphins in 294 of 474||62%|
|Harbour porpoises in 50 of 474||10,5%|
|Humpback whales in 115 of 474||24,3%|
|Killer whales in 3 of 474||0,6%|
|Sei whales in 3 of 474||0,6%|
|Fin whales in 2 of 474||0,4%|
|Northern bottlen. whales in 2 of 474||0,4%|
|Blue whales in 1 of 474||0,2%|

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.
