Sea Serpent Sightings in San Francisco Bay

21 posts in this topic

The busy waters of San Francisco Bay may not seem the likeliest place to find reclusive cryptids like sea serpents, but both history and current events seem to contradict that assumption.

Recorded sightings of large, serpentine sea creatures in San Francisco Bay date back to the 1800’s and continue to the present day.

I remember seeing the interview with the brothers and wondered if Caddy's use the bay as a spawning ground, or if the bay is on a migratory route ?

Seems like the Giant Squid they have found remains.

Spawning ground? so when you kill them, they spawn 24 hours later?

That would be re-spawn.

Well, at least SF Bay is big and directly connected to a sea. Better than some other sea serpent stories.

There are a lot of creatures in the worlds oceans that humans have not met, and if they do these creatures are passed off as Giant Squids, Whale Sharks etcetera, so if more than one person has seen these Sea Serpents (at the same time),its not an optical illusion. Sometimes you haven't time to get out your phone/camera before the creature has disappeared under the waves.Then when you tell someone you get laughed at or they want proof.I know this from experience, but I know what I saw and I was with shipmates at the time,it was discussed for days in the Mess Room.

Well apparently there was no nessie sightings in the lock ness last year, maybe SF is where nessie is currently residing

This is one of the most monitored and busiest bodies of water on the the planet by civil, naval ships and planes one of the heaviest in traffic. There are people counting the fish that travel through the bay area for a living, in some underground facility, they are just sat looking through windows monitoring fish 24 hours a day.

The bay also has a large build up of weed and when this gets clumped together many people may have mistaken that for a sea serpent.

I believe if there was a sea serpent living in those waters, we would have more sightings - photo's - videos. Just my opinion!

Edited for spelling errors.

ahh but noone could predict the prehistoric shark found in Japanese waters in a busy shipping area that was thought to be extinct millions of years ago

The Clark Brothers!!

Members right here at UM you know! I ended up with quite a repertoire after a while, we have exchanged personal emails and all. Their idea is not that it lives in the bay, but visits it for food as far as I know, last time I spoke to them they were chasing down a fisherman's sighting out in the ocean.

I have been wondering from time to time how they are rolling. Big claim, but really nice fellows and I found them very open to questions, and one cannot really ask for more than that in a discussion forum I think.

Been ages, I hope they have both been well.

I remember having a pleasant exchange of emails with them but I vaguely remember them spamming the board with the same or similar threads and I may be wrong but didn't they try to sell their full video of their sighting to us when we asked to see the full clip?

Sort of, they did say that costs were involved, but I did give them a hard time about it, and they explained what it costs them to produce, and they were only interested in covering costs, and the overall cost seemed fairly mild if I remember, and I am pretty sure that they ended up sending me an email with some of the information from the clip and report anyway, I'll have to dig through my old emails and see if I still have it.

They did spam a bit, but that was in their enthusiastic stage when they just got the report done and one of them had a recent sighting in the bay, I think that excitement just got the better of them, they have been rather quiet since. Although I do hear about them from time to time.

They got shafted by that sham organization GUST too, they did a thread here and emailed me about it. Honestly not sure if those jokers are still operating.

That's correct, now I remember, thanks for reminding me :tu:

It would be nice to have them update us on their opinions now and any new findings?

I am an AVID fisherman, along with marksmanship make up my two favorite sports.

There are a few BIG fish that could be mistake for a sea serpent. One example of that is the ore fish. The can get as large as 36 or more feet long and look like a eel/snake.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oarfish

Other examples are basking sharks - not sea serpent looking but if you saw one you would think monsters of old lol http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basking_shark

The sleeper shark of nordic decent has been identified as the creature that could be "nessie" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_sleeper_shark

Then there is the frilled shark, could be mistaken for a sea serpent with out a problem http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frilled_shark

There are many more examples, so it is possible that this is a not known species of fish that visits the bay or it could be any number of known species just old, big, and scary looking lol.

...with all the millions of fishing nets that go into the water every single day you'd expect at least a dozen "Nessie's" to be caught on a daily basis. Assuming that they exist of course...

Whales are often sighted in the SF bay.
