    Madrona Point is located north of Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island off Canada's west coast. During this dive I encountered several pacific giant octopus, and some wolf eels. Enjoy :)

    I missed a couple on the run back at the top of the wall, didn't have enough bottom time left. And one that has been actively feeding wasn't in it's den, so may have been out deeper hunting.

    There was a 4th wolf eel deep in a horizontal crack between the tiger and yelloweye rockfish (which are at app 2:00 min on this video, I didn't include in the video though). Sometimes there is an octopus very close to that wolf eel.

    I've noticed most of you videos include wolf eels. Do you ever see aggression between the GPO and the wolf eel? Do you see wolf eels around brooding octos
