Comments : To me, Wolf-Eels are the highlight of any dive in Puget Sound. Although most Wolf-Eels and are shy, timid creatures, some of the resident Wolf-Eels at Sunrise have become accustomed to scuba divers. This female may be hand fed herring and even handled if treated very carefully. The current swept wall at Sunrise is home to at least five resident Wolf-Eels.
