Ogopogo Monster - Canada's Famous Lake Monster


OGOPOGO Sightings of 1989

During the summer of 1989, the British Columbia Crypto zoology Club (BCCC) made two expeditions to Lake Okanagan to seek out the Ogopogo Monster. Several sightings of the creature were reported, as well as  captured on video. The first sighting was on July 30.  The following is a quote from the BCCC report.


"The focus of the investigation turned to Summerland, and a particularly good vantage point was located at Peach Orchard Beach, Lower Summerland, on July 30. All four members of the investigating team were stationed at various points on the beachfront when, at 3:55 p.m., a most extraordinary occurrence took place. A large patch of white water materialized close to a headland at the southern end of the beach, drawing the attention of the BCCC observers. It was about 1,000 feet distant at this point, and it was clear that a large animal was swimming in a northerly direction against the prevailing wind and slight swell. At a distance of about 600 feet, Kirk Sr. was able to see clearly through a Bushnell 40X telescope that this was the classic Ogopogo, with its humps well above the water level. Both Clarks were also able to see the object clearly through binoculars. The animal displayed, variously, five and sometimes six humps.

"Kirk's telescope allowed him to see that the animal's skin was whale-like, and that there were what appeared to be random calcium-like deposits under the skin which appeared to be similar to barnacles in shape. All the team members agree that the animal was between 30 and 35 feet in length, and was almost 3 feet above the surface at its highest point -- that being the middle hump."
