Giant Pacific Octopus

[singlepic id=185 w=320 h=240 mode=watermark float=left]UWE was out diving at Tuwanek Beach again today, as it is a dive that never disappoints, and once again today we were rewarded with a beautiful encounter with two Giant Pacific Octopi.  The sky was dark and threatening rain, but the water was calm, and visibility a little short, but still good enough to enjoy the trip out to the octo’s dens.

Susanne and I slowly proceeded down the sloping bottom until we ran into the wall, and then followed it out to the den in 70 feet of water.  As we approached we saw one smaller Giant Jellies, and some crabs.  As I headed into the den, I was at the lower portion of it, and there in the corner was a little octopus, who was very very curious, as they kept probing and playing with my [singlepic id=141 w=320 h=240 mode=watermark float=right]dive light.  Susanne was a little shallower then I, and was checking out the other portion of the den where she saw a “HUGE” octopus.  So, needless to say it was another successful dive!!
