Whale Survey Data 224 cetacean sightings were made, totaling 660 animals. Fourteen species of cetacean were seen (8 odontocete and 6 mysticete). Humpback whales were the most numerous baleen whale encountered on the voyage, both in number of sightings (n=68) and total number of animals counted (n=150). Similarly, killer whales (13 sightings, 123 individuals) and pilot whales (5 sightings, 150 individuals) were the most numerous odontocete, while sperm whales were sighted most often (n=21).
