Dancing with a sperm whale. In the heart of the Indian Ocean, off Reunion Island, two divers swam with this cetacean. A unique adventure for them, since they were able to approach and commune with this giant of the seas. “We are on either side of the sperm whale and we see the eye of the animal, we can detect the Milky Way, stars in its eyes. In ours too I suppose”, relates Alexandre Boulhol, diving guide.
The two friends were able to spend an hour with the animal, a baby sperm whale of almost 8 meters all the same. Adults, they can measure 16 meters and snorkel up to 900 meters deep. A trip to the sea that the two divers will not forget. The presence of the toothed cetacean off Reunion Island is indeed extremely rare. The species is classified as vulnerable and is protected.
