Once again, the octopus were not hiding. And I saw 8! Note I didn't say it was easy. But very rewarding. Now if only I could get them not to fear me....
I'll have to admit, he'e #1 had me a bit nervous: I could see its siphon, but didn't see it breathing through it. It was a large adult octopus, so I'm not sure what was going on.
In a small hole out near the surf break. The siphon is on the left (white circular thing) and the eye is below and to the right.
