When your life revolves around the sea as ours does, you hear stories. Stories of deep sea monsters, mermaids and giant squids right out of a Moby Dick novel, are just some of the tales we’ve heard. Most stories about mysterious creatures we shrug off as ‘not bloody likely’, but others enter the realm of real possibility.
Over the years we have personally seen our share of magical and mystical creatures on dives, but most have been previously documented. We consider these rare sightings perks of the trade. While diving with friends off the coast of Baja, California, we had the unique pleasure of swimming with Whale Sharks. It would take the biggest tow truck St Louis MO had available to haul this magnificent creature on land. Yet these 40 foot harmless “monsters” glide effortlessly through the tropical waters filtering plankton as they go.
