The local teacher is an experienced diver and during a recent trip near the Argonaut Wharf she had an experience she’ll never forget.

Her and four diving buddies encountered a 10-foot octopus that definitely wasn’t shy around humans. 

“It had climbed on my camera like a bunch of times and at one point it was on my body, like, kind of engulfed over my stomach area giving me a hug,” Humphreys told the Campbell River Mirror. “The only exposed part of my body was my mouth and several times it had a tentacle up over my mouth and my regulator; on my lip and I could feel it, like, sucking in the suckers on my lip.”

“Oh, yeah, it was insane,” she added.

What’s even more amazing is that Humphreys was able to film the whole thing. Watch the video here

“I’ve been diving for 12 years. Six-hundred-and-fifty dives and never had an encounter like that,” she told CHEK News. “It was exhilarating.”
