A video of kayakers being greeted by a friendly seal on the Isle of Man has gone viral.

Big Pond Kayaks spotted the animal near the Calf of Man over the weekend, taking photos of their encounter.

Stephen Marsh who is a member of the group said, "The seal was trying to give the sea weed to us to play with."

The seal can be seen in the video swimming close-up to the kayakers before swimming away.
