Rare sighting of sperm whales off California coast

Two sperm whales can be seen swimming off the coast of Southern California in a video recorded by a boat captain in the area. Captain Ryan Lawler, who is also a whale watching tour boat owner, said he steered his boat from Newport Harbor in Orange County to obtain the spectacular view of the mammals. The whales were swimming within one mile of each other, about five miles off Palos Verdes Peninsula. Sperm whales tend to stick to deeper waters, making them harder to research than most other animals. An adult sperm whale, among the biggest mammals on earth, can grow up to 16 metres and can weigh up to 57 tonnes.
