Calling it a “once in a lifetime encounter,” Weldon Wade posted video footage showing sharks feeding on dead 30-35 foot sperm whale floating off Bermuda, with the video also showing Marine Biologist Choy Aming on top of the whale capturing GoPro footage from a very unique perspective.
In an Instagram post, Weldon Wade said, “Here is video from a once in a lifetime encounter back in May of 2015 of tiger, dusky and blue sharks doing what they are designed to do: keeping the ocean ecosystem in balance and healthy, keeping disease from spreading and moving nutrients and influencing prey items so the ocean is healthy and in balance.
“This 30-35 foot dead sperm whale was found floating about 12 miles off Bermuda’s shore on the eastern side of Challenger Bank by a fisherman who alerted Marine Biologist Choy Aming and photographer Chris Burville. A few of us were fortunate to join and share the experience.
“We could smell the whale from a distance and once we got close could see the sunburned baking whale skin and the various species of shark feeding.
“We spent some time observing from the surface, about 20 minutes in the water with the sharks, about 30 minutes tethered to the whale and, as seen in this short clip, Choy spent some time on top of the whale capturing GoPro footage from a very unique perspective while wearing snorkel gear so that if he did roll of he would have a good chance of seeing everything and be able to move out of harms way.
