Sea Monster Of Darien, GA
Although the name may give the impression that this monster is a joke, it has been sighted by seasoned fishermen who say they have never seen such a thing before (and rather wish they never had,
from the teasing they have received). Named after the river it frequents, the Altamaha, this mysterious creature is said to be large, dark, has two humps and churns the water in a strange way when
surfacing or submerging. The local newspaper, The Darien News, has recorded a number of sightings, while some remain unreported. Darien, Georgia is a small fishing town in the county of McIntosh,
which is veined with many waterways and protected from the sea with barrier islands.
