'Once in a Lifetime': Octopus Wraps Itself Around Diver's Camera

A woman recently diving with friends near Campbell River in British Columbia had a “once in a lifetime moment” when a friendly octopus wraps itself around her camera.

Video by Andrea Humphreys shows the sea creature approaching the camera and eventually wrapping its body around it, allowing for some stunning close-up shots.

Humphreys told Storyful that her friends were visiting from the east coast and had “requested” to see an octopus, having never encountered one before.

“I did not disappoint, to say the least,” she said, adding that the experience was a “once in a lifetime moment,” and that she felt blessed about the encounter. Credit: Andrea Humphreys via Storyful
