A Rare Encounter with a Sperm Whale! – 31/3/18

It was late in the day and we were supposed to be heading back to the dock when the crew got a report that a sperm whale was near where we were. We raced over to where it was last seen and dropped the hydrophone.

We listened to him echolocate for about 20 minutes before he finally surfaced. He sat there for about 10 minutes just breathing before he dove back down.
