    I would try to be disarming (I hear octopi are suckers for that kind of thing).

    Getting a grip on the situation before I get sucked in - How large is said sucker? 

    If was a small one I would surface and head to the dive boat
    Larger than small use my dive knife after I had gotten the sucker by the neck and start making open ocean sashimi, after the ink sak is released if you do not have control of the neck you be dead
