First underwater video footage of the True’s beaked whale

A species of elusive deep-diving whale has been captured on film for the first time in its underwater environment. The footage was recorded in the coastal waters of the Azores and shows three majestic True’s beaked whales surfacing. True´s beaked whales spend 92 per cent of their time underwater, which means sightings are scarce. So far, only seven live sightings of the species have been reported in Macaronesia, a region in the North Atlantic ocean.
