The seal kisses the diver during an underwater encounter. Watch their adorable video
Scuba diving is a fascinating experience. The breathtaking marine life provides a visual treat for divers exploring the underwater world. Although diving deep into the ocean also poses dangers to aquatic animals, an attack can be expected at any time. However, in an interesting incident caught on camera, a friend seal got cozy with a diver and apparently kissed him underwater. A video showing the seal’s encounter with the diver has surfaced online and the seal’s sweet gesture is winning hearts around the world.
The clip shared by ABC News on Instagram shows the seal approaching the diver. The seal apparently kisses the man on his cheeks again and again. Water bubbles appear around them.
In a series of tweets, Ben Burville, an underwater cameraman, shared glimpses of his seal encounters. In one photograph, a seal is seen resting its face on the diver’s helmet. In another video, a seal is seen examining the diver after he was joined by another.
In the third tweet, Burville noted that the seal’s whiskers were tickling his face. “About 23m down was deeper than my usual encounters…whiskers were tickling my face!” Burville tweeted.
Internet users were amazed by the gesture of the seal. One user commented: “He gave you a 💋 kiss with your eyes closed. Almost like in fairy tales. Again: brilliant! Another user wrote: “Ahhh how beautiful. .
