San Francisco Sea Serpent: Our Own Nessie, Go Find Her

San Francisco Sea Serpent: Our Own Nessie, Go Find Her 1

By Mollie McWilliams

Forget Bigfoot, Yeti, and Nessie, San Francisco has its own mysterious creature.

The San Francisco sea serpent, according to Mysterious Destinations Magazine, has been swimming through the bay since at least the 1800s and has been spotted lurking in the waters near Marina Green.

In artist renderings of our sea serpent, who definitely needs a name — and possibly a Twitter account — she (he?) looks like an elongated eel with dorsal and pectoral fins. From a distance, one could say she resembles waves rolling in to the bay.

While we’re not convinced of her existence, we will admit it does appear something is going on in the water in this video at the 1:58 mark.

One of the other famous sightings of her happened on February 5, 1985, where, according to Mysterious Destinations, the Clark brothers were watching some sea lions out in the bay, when suddenly they scattered, and she appeared!

“When it got within a few yards of the group of sea lions it suddenly raised its head and a portion of its body approximately 10 feet straight up out of the water and then it lunged forward into the group of sea lions.”

You can watch the entire interview of this encounter at the end of this post, and read about other sightings on their site.

Our sea serpent is the main feature of their magazine this month, and to coincide with this, they’re encouraging S.F. residents to grab a pair of binoculars and head to the bay to try and catch a glimpse of her. They say now is the best time of year for spotting her, as the warmer bay waters lure her in from the wintery ocean. We’d love to see an Instagram picture of her (or what wave ripples you think are her). Let’s start a hashtag, #SFNessie. Now, go look for her.
