Ogopogo is Canada’s most famous water monster. Legend has this fearsome water monster living in the depths of Lake Okanagan. There have been thousands of reported sightings of Ogopogo over the years. The most common description is that of a 40 to 50 foot long sea serpent with many humps and a horse-like head. It is believed that Ogopogo is an omnivore – eating both lake animals and plants. Physical evidence so far has been limited to unclear photos, such as this one from the internet.
Down on Kelowna’s waterfront is a fiberglass statue commemorating Ogopogo – unfortunately this has been my only sighting of the elusive creature. BUT I am keeping my camera at the ready.
