ROV’s rare encounter with sperm whale 1,963ft beneath the surface of the ocean

Remotely Operated Vehicles or (ROVs) are unmanned sea vehicles operated under the sea. Many of these ROVs are used for research expeditions.  During an expedition below the Gulf of Mexico, off the Coast of Louisiana one of these vehicles has a rare counter with a sperm whale.  The curious whale circled around the ROV several times before continuing on its journey.  Watch the amazing footage.
