TARPON SPRINGS, Fla. — Two scuba divers caught an enormous stingray on video during an underwater excursion eight miles off Tarpon Springs this weekend.

The stingray is resting on the Gulf of Mexico floor in the sand.

The underwater video is shot by Howard Cohn, a Tampa Bay local, who was diving with Narcosis Scuba Center’s Shawn Campbell.

You can see how massive the ray actually is when Campbell swims next to it.

The divers estimate the sting ray was 10-12 feet long including the stinger.
