I am not sure whether or not the photo itself is real, but there is apparently a local history of seeing mermaid like creatures in the area. This is the statement of the man who took the photo:

"I'd heard about her before," says Leicher, who operates Jack's Diving Locker. "Most of us who are out in these waters regularly have heard stories. But I'd never seen her until that morning.

"We were on our way out to the point when a school of dolphins started following the boat, playing in our wake. Suddenly one of the men on the port side starts yelling and pointing.

"I couldn't believe what I saw. There, not 10 feet from the bow, was what looked like a nude woman.

"She had long flowing hair and one of the most beautiful faces I've ever seen.

"Then she leapt into the air and my heart almost gave out on me. The entire lower half of her was covered with scales and tapered back into a huge fish tail."

"She jumped once more, then disappeared under the surface."

All 10 people on the boat witnessed the bizarre incident. But there was another incredible surprise still ahead.

"About an hour later we arrived at the point and we were diving. I was photographing some colorful fish with my underwater camera.

"Suddenly I felt something brush against my right leg. She shot by me like a streak of lightning, then turned and came back past me, swimming the other way. I just aimed the camera and started snapping pictures.

"I kept shooting as she broke for the surface and swam away."

Weekly World News had Leicher's pictures analyzed by three noted photography labs. All three say the photos are genuine and have not been tampered with. "
