When you can cruise around plucking scallops in 50 feet and place them into
a sack clipped to your torso with these little darlings reaching up to envelop
you without making dust and I'm talking where you almost cant see the sand

That is absolutely amazing! On such barren substrate, what ARE they living on? Each other?

This is a regular migration of spider crabs from Tasmania that happens every year. They move around the bay feeding at various sites, including some of the piers where us divers get to watch them. The sandy area in the video can be full of life, on nights dives I have done there you see a lot of octopus coming out of the sand to feed.

We see the same thing with lobsters out on the sand at the right times of the season.

The practical side of buoyancy control is the real deal. I like to drop down and pluck golf balls from silty fresh water sites without stiring things up.

My colleague just suggested it might be the mafia body-dump site TSandM, that would explain what they live off?

That video needs a stick of butter in it to give us a perspective on their size.

Now that's the way all sand beaches should be, we have an oil dock that has dungies like that, I wonder if we here in PNW have are spider crab tribal meetings somewhere in the sand.
