Friendly Octopus Clings onto Freediver

Occurred on June 30, 2019 / France

Info from Licensor: "During a snorkeling trip, I saw a rock on to the sand. I got down to have a look there was an octopus was stuck to it. Straight away, it came over and stuck to me. He decided to stay on my back and I couldn't find a way to remove him or make him let him go. I tried several times to descend again to the sand about eight meters deeper, but he stayed stuck to me. I didn't want to injure him trying to remove him from me. At one point, he changed position and came around to my chest so I descended again and got him off of me gently. It was more than 30 minutes of close contact."
