Welcome to the One Thousand Whales in One Year Website.
Early last year, four strangers met on a whale-watching voyage near San Diego. A few months and many whales later, we had become friends. We conceived the idea of turning Scotty's tattered daily whale notebook into a real book - the story of our quest to find 1000 whales in 1 year.
It's now 2014. We found the whales. We wrote the book. This website reveals some of its contents. You can look at pictures of whales, view some videos, read a few pages of our book on finding whales, and order your own book.
If you just want to see the whale-counting statistics, here they are:
|May||0||0||0||0||0||0||0||0||We took no trips|
|June||6||0||6||0||1||0||7||3||Low number of trips|
|July||10||0||10||5||1||0||16||2||Low number of trips|
|August||24||0||10||3||0||2||15||10||Most "no whale" days|
We averaged 4.4 whales per trip, and had an 85% success rate in finding big whales when we went out looking for them.
