Short video with a great encounter with a Giant Pacific Octopus as I was filming the Octopus was curious and started to reach out and touch my gloves first it was one hand then two at which point it was only using two of its 8 arms. It was then it decided to take my camera, you will see the suction cups attach to the video lens window and then the film goes black after a short period we gently negotiated the camera back. Also in this video is some great encounters with Seals filmed in shallow water.
