Seasoned seaman serenditously sees sea serpent, films scene

Sea serpent off our shore

Reported by: Chandra Bill
Photographer: Dennis Burke

You've heard of the Loch Ness Monster, the Creature from the Black Lagoon.

The sea serpents of legend, right?

A local diver says he's found something not even the Smithsonian can identify and it's right off the shores of Juno Beach.

Beneath the surface of our crystal blue waters live a myriad of marine life.

Sometimes we can see them from the air -- steely eyed shark congregating by the thousands, graceful stingray, gliding along the shallows.

But go deeper

You never know what you'll find. Just ask Jay Garbose.

"This is a first and I've traveled and video'ed all over the world."

Take a look at what he found and listen to the story -- it's no fish tale.

"I was diving on Juno Ledge. That's about a mile off shore of Juno Beach. At first I thought it was a sea cucumber although no one's every seen one stretched 7 to 10 feet the way this one was. It's sort of grey and putty like and very smooth and taffy like in the way it stretches. Some of my friends and I have sort of dubbed it the living intestine."

As an underwater videographer, Jay has captured images for National Geographic and the Discovery Channel.

For this, he turned to his connections at the Smithsonian.

"They seem to have identified it as a Nemertean Worm."

Chandra Bill, reporter: "But they're not sure that's exactly what this is."

Jay: "They can't even identify what family it is in right now."

For now, the Smithsonian is calling it "undescribed".

Chandra Bill: "Do you think it will get named after you?"

Jay: "Well, they said I could name it, but I'd have capture it."

Jay says he wants to go back to Juno Ledge and look for it, but he knows it's unlikely he'll find it.
