Cheeky seal hitched a ride on my kayak.

We paddled from Hawes pier at South Queensferry to Crammond, then over to Inchcolm via Inchmickery. As we were leaving Inchcolm a very inquisitive and playful seal joined us. A amazing experience with a wild seal. This video went viral and was shown all over the world. Here is my private compilation of its reach. https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=DMKp-nS2IyE "This video is managed by Newsflare.

Maybe he wanted to be save for predators? But if not Thumbs up anyway.

Except he'll mess you up worse than any rottweiler or GSD ever could if you piss him off.
They are very cute, but make no mistake they are efficent predators, and like any wild preditory animal, can be unpredictable.

Better to keep your distance, and shoo him off gently with your paddle, safer for you... and him.

If he gets habituated to hanging with humans, someone might hurt him, and that would be a shame.

Hehe what a little cracker. And a bloody heavy lad too. I've had a heron follow my route on the canal for a couple of months now. Last week whilst I stopped for a smoke and a brew he appeared and after a few minutes observation he flew down and landed on my deck. He had his back to me the whole time and occasionally glanced backwards to be sure before he took off again. It was a lovely moment. Thanks for sharing your encounter. peace
