Melbourne: Beachgoers at Magnetic Island have reportedly spotted a distinctive long, curved "neck" bobbing up and down off the coast and believe it to be a Loch Ness monster.

The strange sea sighting has created quite a buzz on the island as locals are desperate to know just what is lurking in the water, News.com.au reported.

However, marine biologists Glen Chilton said that while new and old creatures are constantly being discovered, even near the Great Barrier Reef, it`s unlikely to be a strange aquatic beast and added that the unidentified marine object is probably a piece of a tree or boat.

Australian crypto-zoologist Rex Gilroy said that it could very well be a dragon boat which sunk off Townsville last week.
