It is the least to say that the adventure which awaited the diver was anything less than a one-of-a-lifetime experience. It is when she talked through to get to swim just some meters down the surface of the sea off the coast of Cornwall in the United Kingdom. She was unaware of the fact the danger it holds. Along with, putting on her swimsuit and the scuba tank beside her cameraman she went ahead into the deep wild ocean. The dive which she planned to make for the point of exploring the underlive bought her to the point where she got to meet a humongous underwater creature. On the contrary, all thanks are to the cameraman who recorded the fearlessness and courage of the duo. No matter what kept their cool in a place where they were not meant to be from the beginning. 

Nevertheless, the wandering of the team took them to some biggest specie who is never to be sighted in their entire life.

A secret location can lead to a discovery.

Just like Lizzie’s other videos, this video starts with her wearing her swimsuit and scuba tank. She selects Falmouth Bay in Cornwall for her dive. In contrast, to her diving in a secret location, she has heard some talk about not going there as some creature might be roaming in the depths of the bay. Nonetheless, Lizzie says she had no plan of going to the place. As the initial plan was to go offshore to take a look at the blue sharks. However, plans changed as it started to get windy and so they decided to go for a dive on the Cornish coast. This decision alone was about to change everything for them.

Being underwater made Lizzie at home. It’s just the feeling of being underneath and touching the sea animals, that brings so much peace. She began to listen to some sounds clicking around her which were coming from the fish around her. Her companion started to record and they went far into the bay.

The Explorers went into the unknown and were about to get the surprise of their lives

The talk going around was very true. They were at a place full of jellyfish. At first glance, they came across the small jellyfish that they had recorded many times over the years however, as they dived further into the bay she saw bigger ones. Lizzie had spent many years learning about the jellyfish she knew a lot about them to stay away at a safer distance. She alongside her cameraman, Dan Abbot, was completely relaxed around these amazing beings. Having enough knowledge about the creatures gave them the benefit of staying away from those who are harmful and touching those who are friendly. Even so, they hadn’t known the size they can grow to in this particular bay. A surprise was awaiting them.

The first meet-up – was her life in danger?

It was just after a short period at the bay, that Lizzie sees a slow-moving jellyfish. She immediately uses her knowledge to identify it. And realizes it is a ‘barrel jellyfish’, which doesn’t bring any harm to humans. There are other kinds too which give a dangerous sting if come any closer. The sting can paralyze and kill the person it contacts with. Despite this, the barrel jellyfish doesn’t use any of these tools, so Lizzie and Dan went on exploring the underwater life.

They, however, mentioned the distance as they didn’t want to scare the barrel jellyfish. In the meantime, she carried on capturing as many pictures and videos of the amazing and graceful sea creatures. It was for the fundraising event the name Wild Ocean Week.

The Moment the Cameraman Spotted a Sea Monster

It is in the moments as such, that a person becomes still. Despite the fact, that Dan already quite experienced in the field of filmmaking underwater for years. He wasn’t prepared for what he was about to witness. As he was slowly diving around his camera caught something which took his breath away. Lizzie on the other hand was confidently diving deep underneath and reached the bottom of the ocean. She was not up for what was coming her way next. Whereas Dan tried to warn her by shouting but that all went in vain as they were underwater and so his voice came out muffled. His heartbeat went up high as he was witnessing the scene unfold.

The monster weighing over seventy pounds who gets to meet Lizzie

Now Dan and Lizzie were in the company of the largest barrel jellyfish they have ever come across. For some time, she thought she was imagining it all. Due to the size of it being incomprehensible which completely dwarfed her small frame. Differing from most divers who would have left the place after coming across such a humongous creature. Lizzie knew exactly what should be done. She was making small movements which were to not scare the jellyfish away. Moreover, she was keeping a safe distance so it doesn’t get alert and goes away. Dan was all the way filming the scenes of the marine biologist following the jellyfish wherever it went.

 

The Cameraman Describes the Magical Moments as He Filmed Lizzie

Dan continued to record Lizzie going around the giant creature. Her heart was running at a marathon speed as she was following the jellyfish. It wasn’t until later that Lizzie told about her time spent in the presence of the creature as ‘calming’. For over a decade, Lizzie spent time underwater. Whereas, this was the most different yet amazing experience of her life. On the other hand, Dan was facing the same emotions. In an interview, he describes it as ‘the three craziest days of my life with Lizzie. Especially, their filming experience with the giant creature for the Wild.
