The men suspected that the body was the corpse of someone who had unfortunately drowned at sea and as they approached in hopes of recovering it so they could identify it, all the men were shocked when it suddenly turned around and looked at them before disappearing.

Local residents know that there have been reports of something else that is common on most of the islands around Hawaii over the past half century. We have seen several mermaid sightings off the coast of the Big Island of Hawaii.
Most of these sightings came from a single source and were never really taken seriously until a dive boat captain finally captured footage of one of these half-woman, half-fish creatures. Jeff Lecker, a 43-year-old dive master, had been swimming in the waters around Hawaii for more than 20 years, but even he was surprised when he photographed a creature. Known as the Point Mermaid Queen, the encounter occurred on April 12, 1998 when he and six other divers were exploring coral reefs about 20 minutes off the coast of Hawaii's sunny Kona Island. According to her, the group was heading to a meeting point when the school of dolphins began to follow them playing in their path, suddenly one of the men saw something swimming next to the dolphins that clearly looked very different, the men could not believe What they saw was that less than 10 feet from the group there was a naked woman with long, loose hair. hair and a very beautiful face, the men reported that there was no way the woman could be human since she swam at the same pace as dolphins, which is practically impossible for any human, no matter how good a swimmer they were, but then The woman jumped to the surface revealing that the entire lower half of her body was covered in scales and tapered at the edge with a huge fish tail.

The image has been analyzed by three different accredited photography laboratories, all of which affirmed that the images were real. and had not been edited in any way The Mermaid of British Columbia Canada has had its fair share of mermaid sightings and sometime in 1967 British Columbia became the central center for mermaid sightings.
Mermaids are generally found in the open ocean, but this particular mermaid was found resting on a beach along the coast of the island of Maine in British Columbia, Canada. In 1967, a ferry carrying tourists spotted what appeared to be a blonde woman sitting on a beach. The woman seemed to be topless with long blonde hair, but what was even more strange was that instead of legs she had a long porpoise tail, what was even more strange is that this mermaid seemed to be eating a raw salmon in the beach and didn't seem fazed by the ferry full of people looking at her.
A mermaid was seen again the following week resting on the exact same beach, but this time she rushed back into the water after noticing that a fairy full of folk stories about the mermaid of the main island became so rampant that the locals started to look for clues about the mermaid's whereabouts. They became so rampant that the island's newspaper published a 25,000 reward for any video or photograph. Mermaid Evidence Many believe the mermaid sighting was a hoax, but that was only intended to entertain tourists in the ferry, but even when the supposed actor refused to come forward to claim the reward money, it began to seem entirely possible that she was actually a real mermaid.

Blackbeard noted some areas of the sea that he avoided at all costs, as he reported seeing mermaids. It was even noted that Blackbeard instructed his crew and made several voyages to avoid these chartered waters, as he called them.
The delighted Blackbeard reported that mermaids were famous for making hypnotic sounds that would confuse the men on any ship that dropped them off. mercy of these creatures, since he could not fight them at sea, he resorted to completely avoiding the regions where he had seen them to save himself and his crew from an uncertain fate.

A diver was studying sea creatures on the coral reefs near the region when he saw something swimming next to him with Unbelievable luck for him, he had his body camera on and was ready to take a quick snapshot of the creature if it swam by again.
Luckily, the creature swam right over his head and he couldn't believe his eyes or his GoPro camera. He saw what appeared to be a human with arms forward and long flowing hair, but with a long tail instead of legs. The creature swam right above the diver and disappeared into the murky waters. The diver was stunned by what he saw and quickly shared. the video of him online with people debating whether or not he was a real mermaid or just a person in a costume. What do you think the mermaid saw was not submersible? One of the most terrifying and downright fascinating images of mermaids was captured by a team of studying geologists. seismic activity on the ocean floor Dr.
Schmidt and his team were contacted by the Geo Survey Department of Iceland to conduct seismic mapping to locate promising sites for oil and gas reserves under the ocean near Greenland . The team was there submersible and had reached almost 3,000 feet below the sea surface and suddenly the whole team started hearing some interesting but quite scary noises coming from outside the submersible. Curiously, the noises faded away as soon as it started and the team completed their mapping and informed the base that they contacted Iceland. Geo investigated and requested permission to study the strange sounds they had heard, but they were surprisingly shut down.
The team was reminded in their confidentiality agreements that they were warned never to reveal their recordings to anyone else. Dr. Schmidt and his team proceeded to conduct their own investigations. and return to the depth at which they heard the sounds, this time they took several cameras and set them up to hopefully catch a glimpse of the strange creature and this time they did, the cameras captured a strange creature placing its hand on the glass . which dives for a few seconds before swimming away. A closer look at the video shows that the hand is not completely human and has fins between each finger that could be an evolved mechanism used for swimming.
The video went viral online and most people believe it. That this must be the most conclusive proof of the existence of mermaids, but the creatures actually seem scarier than the Little Mermaid fairy tales we've all been led to believe mermaid trapped in a net most fishermen are lucky Yes, they can catch a net full of fish, but this group of fishermen got much more than they bargained for when they threw in something completely different. This group of fishermen went about their normal daily routine trying to catch a net full of fish as they always did, they just cast. a bucket full of bait in a section of the ocean and they left their net waiting for the fish to take the bait and soon something began to shake the net, the group of men began to pull the nets in the hope that they had caught a huge school Of fishes. fish, but they were surprised to find something completely different there, as you can see, it turned out that they caught something extremely large with huge, almost human-like hands, the creature that the fishermen described as an enraged mermaid that broke through the net with With its sharp claws the creature fought against the net to free itself as it seemed that it was not used to nor liked being trapped in a net and was not willing to risk its lives at the hands of what turned out to be a very strong mermaid. the fishermen let the net go back into the ocean if they hadn't recorded this strange encounter on tape surely no one would believe them even though everyone saw the same thing mermaid in India mermaids are a common part of Indian culture and over the years , people have claimed to have seen mermaid sightings in different rivers across the country, but it's one thing to claim to have seen a mermaid and another thing to capture a mermaid in plain sight for the entire world.

The creature appears to have a fish head with a jaw, mouth and eyes and also the story of some type of aquatic animal with fins and tail, but the torso of this creature is where the problem lies, as it visibly has human-looking arms and also a distended belly with what appear to be breasts.
