ROV Encounters Sperm Whale 2000 ft Underwater During Livestream
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 their cameras the chance to capture some incredible footage of this beautiful creature. Encounters between sperm whales and ROVs (remotely operative vehicles) are incredibly rare.
