Octopus sighting at Rathlin

25 Jun

First time I’ve seen one in the waters around here, so it has to be recorded. It was off the North Wall of Rathlin , East of the Arches but before the mini amphitheatres at around 20 metres, right out in the open. Didn’t like the torch being shone on him, well you wouldn’t would you?. Probably the first human he had ever encountered. Very graceful swimming

Well I make it out to be a big thing, no doubt they are very common, but in my 3 years diving its the first I’ve seen here.
