Local marriage celebrant David "Crusty" Herron captured An image of the unknown visitor, who he claims resembles the Loch Ness monster.
"I was walking along the beach looking for wedding locations of all things," Mr Herron told ninemsn.
"Suddenly, somebody shouts out, 'what the heck is that? It looks like the Loch Ness monster!'
Mr Herron said the object, which locals have nicknamed a UMOOT (unidentified marine object or thing), appeared to be moving and was about 250 to 300m from the shore.
"I thought maybe Scotland had been too cold lately so Nessie decided to come and visit Maggie [Magnetic Island]" laughs Mr Herron.
