Diver captures stunning footage of rare 8-foot giant squid

Still Waters

Recommended Posts

A diver in Japan swam alongside an unusual companion earlier this month: An 8.2-foot-long (2.5 meter) giant squid. 

Yosuke Tanaka, who co-runs Dive Resort T-Style with his wife in Toyooka City, Japan, got the opportunity on Jan. 6 when a local ferryman called him to say that there was a large squid swimming near the surface off the coast in the Sea of Japan. Tanaka hurried over, he wrote on his blog, and was rewarded with a close-up encounter with one of the ocean's most mysterious creatures.

It was the first time he'd ever swum with a giant squid (Architeuthis dux), Tanaka told Live Science in an email.
