Surfers - Sailors - What's the Weirdest Thing you ever Saw in the Ocean?
I was swimming in the Atlantic in North Florida. Someone saw something and we were trying to work out if it was a shark or a dolphin.

So I asked a guy on a kayak who was out quite a way what it was (dolphin). I then asked him if he ever saw anything weird out there, and he just gave me a really weird smile - said if he did I probably wouldn't want to swim there.

He was too far out for me to nail him down to what he had seen... What have you seen that was not 'normal'?

I saw bright orange lights underwater a good way offshore in the Gulf of Mexico.
This happened April of 2012.

I have no idea what there were and I'll leave it at that.

Middle of nowhere in the Windward Pass, Caribbean. A standard yellow school bus being driven along like it was a boat. It was mounted atop some floats with the drive shaft through the bottom to a prop. Steering wheel had ropes to a rudder.

Some island guy island hopping buying, trading and selling legal stuff like blue jeans, shoes, fruit, tobacco, about anything you could think of.

This can happen anywhere on the ocean when the sun sets.
It's a brief green flash at the point the sun goes down over the horizon. Most sailors have seen it one time or another.

Nasty begging Dolphins!

Divers gave them Food and the smart Dolphins started
to wait for the Boats full of Tourists.

The begging was really aggressive.


Location was the Gulf of Thailand close to Cambodia.

This was off Florida's west coast.

3-4 round orbs of orange light.

Hard to estimate the size, I guess the size of a modern day Ford F150.

They were several hundred yards offshore then one started moving towards me on the beach. It moved inside the swim buoys and then stopped.

To be totally honest, I was frightened.

I have no idea what they were... they moved back offshore and faded out underwater.

I have seen the green flash in Barbados.
A giant Atlantic Ray off Grand Cayman while scuba diving, followed me like a dog and then swam next to me all the way to the surface. Must have been 8feet from nose to start of tail, amazing thing to see

A merman swam alongside me when a current pulled me from shore until I was safe again. He put his hand on my back, looked in my eyes before he swam off with telepathic communication. He had a ridge where his spine was that continued to the top of his head. Hawaii main island.
