A sperm whale named Whero

Recently we have been sighting a sperm whale that has a reddish tinge to his skin. With this in mind crew have started to call him Whero which is Māori for red. Aptly named wouldn't you agree? Here are a few pictures that one of our crew, Captain Paki managed to capture and share with us.
