One of the most famous encounters with mysterious beings was reported in 1982, when seven military divers encountered three mysterious humanoid beings at a depth of 50 meters. According to the reports, these strange beings were dressed in tight silver suits. The beings did not have any diving devices like divers do, only strange helmets. Some experts have compared the descriptions of these beings seen in the lake with ancient petroglyphs where similar strange-looking beings are depicted with very similar helmets as those reported by the divers. The mysterious beings that have been seen by military divers, wear mysterious equipment resembling modern-day astronaut suits.

Together with the mysterious UFO encounters, there have been numerous reports of vessels disappearing in the waters of Lake Baikal. Locals have reported mysterious objects appearing on the lake, objects materializing and dematerializing, pointing to a list of unexplained phenomena in its waters.
