His friend, Taiyo Masuda said it was a “beautiful day and seals were swimming and enjoying sun on the rocks. Right around lunchtime, several seals started to swim around. We just thought they were refreshing their body, yet apparently they were seeking more food.
“One of the seals swam right next to us, having an octopus in his mouth, pops right up of the surface next to us, then tries to chew up the leg but ended up slapping our face! We instantly started laughing, certainly got surprised. We are all adventure guys but we don’t encounter that every day! Such a raw moment, brought so much laughter to all of us all day long… What a day to remember!”
The seal came up a couple of times before swimming away, probably to hit another innocent kayaker.
