Recently there was a rare sperm whale encounter observed by the Nautilus Exploration team in the Gulf of Mexico. The sperm whale was observed in the deep sea at approximately 600 meters off the coast of Louisiana. The ROV Hercules captured the footage, which is an extremely rare event. Kudos to the Nautilus Exploration team for capturing this beautiful event! I’m so excited to be joining the team on May 11, 2015 in the Gulf of Mexico!
