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.
|Minke whales in 441 of 481||91,7%|
|White beaked dolphins in 410 of 481||85,2%|
|Humpback whales in 138 of 481||28,7%|
|Harbour porpoises in 109 of 481||22,7%|
|Sei whales in 3 of 481||0,6%|
|Total: 478 of 481||99,4%|
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.
