I mind working offshore about 25 years ago we had a cheeky seal hanging about our platform. People used to watch this seal for ages (we were much easier pleased in them days before Netflicks or the internet).

One of its favourite tricks was to juggle a fish to tease the gulls. It would sometimes leave it floating on the surface then shoot up trying to catch a gull when one tried to grab the fish.

Yeah, they're clever and always on the lookout for a free meal
My mate used to run a fishing charter business and hated seals because they\d follow the charter boats and do exactly hat you said T
I once went to kayak under the Golden Gate bridge, then read that there\s great white sharks around that area, so decided to kayak the San Jacquim river delta instead
Almost shat myself when a bull elephant seal surfaced right beside me and kept pace with as I paddled
My boat was 17 1/2 feet, and that seal was just as big
I pulled off to the side and it carried on
Amazing creatures

Mon the Beau, mon his wee duck pals,ye can jist imagine them sayin, 'who's the lanky fecker ower the back!
The first time we went there, they took a while to come over
Now when they see us, they fly over and it's cool watching them 'splash down' as they flock towards us
They even come up onto the dock, and couldn't care less if Beau is close to them
