“We were leaving Long Caye, during our Blue Hole Dive trip, which is located at the Lighthouse Reef Atoll, heading towards Turneff Atoll,” commented Rolando Caceres, dive master at Ramon’s Village Dive Shop. “It was about 15 of them; the boat would get close, about 100ft, but they would dive down. Only one stayed close about 50ft from the boat, which is the one on the video. The snorkelers that got in water got about 10 to 20ft from it.”
Caceres says that only one of 15 sperm whales was curious enough to stay as close as 50 feet from the boat as they attempted to get close to the pod.
