Remarkable Giant Pacific Octopus and Wolf-Eel Encounter
Trust me, you are going to love the video below!
It is one of the most remarkable encounters I have witnessed in all my dives.
It’s a fortunate enough thing to be able to watch a large Giant Pacific Octopus when it is hunting. In this encounter, the octopus passes directly over a mature male Wolf-Eel in his den. THEN, a Decorator Warbonnet emerges as well.
It was an exciting day in this wonderful marine neighbourhood.
I hope this 3-minute clip allows you to share in the awe and excitement.
For me, this was the NE Pacific Ocean equivalent of seeing a giraffe, elephant and rhino in close proximity.
Video and photos contributed by dive buddies Katie Morgan and Diane Reid while on our trip with God’s Pocket Dive Resort.

Fabulous Jackie! So, Iâm just wondering if youâve seen the video of the octopus eating a sharkâ¦..? It was in an aquarium, but still, it made me worry about youâ¦..
I have seen that video Vickie – attesting to the intelligence of octopuses. Have never had any reason ever as a diver to worry about them. Magnificent animals!
