Made famous by the novel Moby Dick, the sperm whale is the species most of us associate with the word “whale”. But surprisingly, this most familiar of all whales is something of a mystery mammal. Its deep diving and oceanic way of life has made it extremely hard to study. But once a year, sperm whales gather to mate off the coast of Dominica, in the warm shallow waters of the Caribbean Sea. We go underwater during mating season and discover some of the sexual secrets of this mysterious deep ocean traveler.
