Continuity 

When on the boat looking at the monitor during close-up shots, there is a boat and a large mass moving through the water. When panned out, the screen is clearly on, but there is no picture. But when they go back into close-up, there is the boat and large mass on the screen again.

Factual errors 

The emergency radio on the bridge shorts out when the boat begins to flood and the boat's generator goes out. Emergency radios work on internal batteries to avoid just such problems.

Virtually every character, including a renown scientist, refer to the monstrous squid as a giant squid, even after they confirm how big it probably is. But the size of the squid shown in the movie describes a colossal squid, significantly larger than what's called a giant squid.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Whip states the largest whole squid carcass ever found was 45 feet long, and that no one knows how big a squid gets. While the first statement is not strictly true, it could be Whip's error; the second statement is true, since squid are not generally visible.
