In the Heart of the Sea - The First Attack

Thomas Nickerson, cabin boy aboard the Essex, was at the helm of the whaler when he saw a potentially unnerving sight. A huge sperm whale was swimming toward the ship.

Most of the crew members were elsewhere, hunting whales in their open boats, at that very moment. Owen Chase, the First Mate, was nearby, however, repairing his boat which a whale had damaged.

This image depicts a screenshot from Ron Howard's film, "In the Heart of the Sea." It depicts the first attack by the whale.
