In the summer of 2004 whales were spotted in 583 trips out of 611 = 95,5%.
In total, eight species were spotted: harbour porpoises, white beaked dolphins, minke whales, killer whales, fin whales, blue whales, sei whales and humpback whales.
|Minke whales in 454 of 611||74%|

|Harbour porpoises in 112 of 611||18%|

|Humpback whales in 95 of 611||16%|
|Killer whales in 13 of 611||13%|

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.
