” According to local legend, the largest octopus in the world lives below the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. Dive deep into one of Puget Sound’s most beloved mysteries.
In 2013, locals voted on the 11 Wonders of Tacoma through an online survey released by the city. Staples like Museum of Glass, Union Station, and Stadium High School were obvious picks. Historic landmarks like beautiful Wright Park and Tacoma’s “living museum” Fort Nisqually also made the cut. But the 10th Wonder was perhaps the most obscure. It was indeed an unofficial city icon, but one most locals have never seen: the giant octopus under the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. For generations, Tacomans have been telling the story. Some say it’s a 600-pound creature, once coined King Octopus by the The News Tribune, that tackles divers in the murky waters beneath the bridge. Others know it to be a scientific phenomenon, seeking nothing more than solitude on its ocean throne. “
