We’ve all experienced that cute moment where a puppy stretches out on his back and looks at us for a belly rub. Well, imagine that same moment happening with a seal as you’re diving! That’s what happened for this shocked diver as he was hunting around under water. Though he was an experienced diver, he had never run into a situation such as this one that involved scratching a seal’s belly like a puppy. What’s more is that the animal asked for it, grabbing his head with his teeth and paws, and guiding the scuba diver’s hands to his tummy. After a thorough rub, the seal got the pet on the back and the head, eliciting happy noises from the satisfied seal. Then his buddy came along and asked for the same treatment. What a moment to catch on camera.

“I’m an experienced diver but I have never known anything like that”
“People ask why I go diving… this is why”
