I have only two things to say about this:

1. This is freaking fantastic!
2. The dude who jumped in the water with it is certifiably nuts. (But then again, he can legitimately claim to be the first person to ever swim with a giant squid--and live. So. . . bragging rights, I guess.)

I have wondered if I would even have considered jumping in with the squid, even seeing that it was not in great shape. Self answer, NO, not after seeing so many Jumbo squid videos!

A little footage here not contained in the above videos. The quality isn't so great in the first one, but what the heck!


And a seventh video (who would have thought...)

@Phil No 8 is from 2014 so not same sighting but the rest seem to be (seventh is dated on the 23rd but may just have been the first one posted)

Whoops, sorry about that. I made a mistake whilst copy and pasting the links last night. I will delete it to avoid confusion.
