Rare Encounter With Sperm Whale

A magic moment for researchers!

A few days ago researchers ROV had a rare encounter.  "At 598 meters (1,962 ft) below the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Louisiana, ROV Hercules encountered a magnificent sperm whale. The whale circled Hercules several times and gave our cameras the chance to capture some incredible footage of this beautiful creature. Encounters between sperm whales and ROVs are incredibly rare."
