On June 27th, 24-year-old Mike Bell took a group of tourists out on the water when he picked up the abnormal object about 115 ft below the surface.
The object had completely vanished when he circled around to scan the same place again.
“I would like to think this is our creature, Nessie,” Mike said. “It’s my first year being the skipper in the boat [and] in five months I’ve never seen it or had something that big on the sonar.”
“An object of that size I would think is way too big for the normal species in the loch. It must have been about five or six minutes we spent trying to pick up this creature again.”
This is this year’s eight formal Loch Ness Monster sighting reported on the official sighting page of the Loch Ness Monster.
“My dad is the more experienced skipper who has been doing this for a few years and has said he’s never seen it that big before on the sonar,” said Bell.
“It’s my first sighting of Nessie and I think my dad is a wee bit jealous as he has never seen it.”
