Rare sperm whale encounter with ROV

At 598 meters (1,962 ft) below the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Louisiana,
ROV Hercules (EV Nautilus) 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.
