According to Ocean X, scientists mapping the seafloor of the Gulf of Aqaba, the “right antenna” of the northern Red Sea, have recently sunk a wreck and two mysterious big squids flying around it. I found sightings at about the same time.

The OceanX team quickly identified the wreck after sending a remotely operated vehicle (ROV). It was the ferry Pella that ignited and sank in November 2011. However, it took time to identify the squid. But it made a lot of cameos. The crew used ROVs and submersibles to visit the shipwreck three times, each time seeing a giant squid swimming.
