Friendship comes in many shapes, sizes, and species. When this smiley little seal met a diver in the ocean near San Clemente, California, he couldn’t contain his excitement.
In the video below, posted on April 18, 2017, a diver from Florida named John Dornellas sees a playful seal floating beneath his feet. But this is only the beginning of their swim together. He is in for the sweetest surprise when the seal swims up to his level.
As John films the adorable creature with an underwater camera, the seal takes it upon himself to wrap around the man’s legs for a quick cuddle. He then sticks his head out and pokes at the camera with his face. Just look at that goofy smile on him!
Later on, John dives deeper into the water and, sure enough, his new seal friend follows. He latches onto John’s arm and slowly crawls up to take a good look at the diver’s face.
Suddenly, the cute seal jolts upward and clings onto John’s head, but quickly loses his grip. Luckily, he swims back and tries to cuddle John’s shoulder in front of the camera.
As John tilts himself downward into the water, the little seal follows and hugs his head.
