Totally thought this would end with a clubbing.

Actually I have a recipe for Baked Seal Meat. It was from Newfoundland and if anyone wants it just let me know.

Ha!
That was cool. I think that was a sea lion,not a seal.I was going to say that there was probably a great white around,But in this case I don't think so.I've had them ( seals) come right up and try to get on board when great whites first started showing up on stellwagen bank.

that is cool... they are so tamed even in the wild around san diego... very cool... kids love them and I used to as well, now they are fish thieves and monsters to me and imo should be open season with a shotgun lol.

Hi, Capt Party Pooper here.
Seems that rewarding the creature's boarding of the vessel is going to cause someone problems down the line.

Lucky he didn't grab the marlin and take that with him. I love seeing wildlife like this but I always wonder if it is really the best thing for them to be that comfortable to come aboard. Nevertheless, liked the video.

Pretty cool. In the video they were wondering how he was swimming that fast. Not swimming at all, he was surfing the wake taking advantage of the "station wagon effect".

I though it was very cool to see nature like that. But I agree this could have been an aggressive animal, had it tried to attack them they would have had to beat it to death. Then again I have lived in SE Florida my entire life and have never even seen a wild seal or sea lion so I have no idea how they typically react with humans.
