Tsunami Cryptid?

Posted by: Loren Coleman on March 13th, 2011

Do you see a Sea Serpent or watery cryptid in this video at the 2:06 minute mark, moving in the lower right hand corner? Click to watch it full screen.

The black object that goes from apparently near the shore to the right hand corner is quite obvious. But as opposed to a creature swimming rapidly away from the shore, it probably is a bird flying over the water, away from the land and out to sea. Similar imagery has been recorded for Loch Ness, which at first looks like it is an animal in the water but upon closer examination is seen to be a bird over the water.

Due to the probable aerial nature of the object, even a bird is not necessary to explain the object. It, no doubt, is a helicopter or the shadow of a helicopter.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

  1. traveller responds:

    I think it’s a helicopter. Right shape and its trajectory is very straight.

  2. Mibs responds:

    I saw a lot of those watching various aerial footage of different areas and I think it’s either a bird or a helicopter

  3. Mïk responds:

    …or a helicopter’s shadow?

  4. alegler responds:

    Just based on the speed alone it is probably a helicopter. Unless it is a supersonic cryptid – maybe a turbo-charged nessie.

  5. springheeledjack responds:

    Yeah, the dark spot moves too seamlessly across the water, and not through the water to be any animal like thing.

    However this brought to mind a sighting (maybe WWI?–don’t have my books handy to check the dates) where a boat or u-boat went down and when it exploded a sea monster was supposedly thrown to the surface (yeah, that’s pretty vague on the details, but again, see above. :)).

    And I would guess even sea going cryptids could get caught in tsunamis, though on the other hand, animals seem to have a much better handle on mother nature for sensing that kind of thing.

  6. Insanity responds:

    looks more like a shadow of an object moving overhead. If you watch it as its crosses over the water edges and beach edges, its image wavers. Consistent with a shadow cross over edges to me.

  7. Spinach Village responds:

    Yeah, helicopter shadow…that’s my first thought.

    And in addition to that, it starts on land and then swiftly crosses the water without leaving any sort of wake or traces of water disturbance.
