BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA – Looks like this family got the seal of approval. A young seal jumped on board the Murray family’s boat in Brisbane, Australia.

“It was like this little dog that went up side of the boat and laid down front of the boat. Amazing,” said Kerry Gannon, family friend.

The seal, which they named Salty, hung out with the family for a while.

“Yeah, dad had to push it off with a flipper,” said Ashleigh Murray.

But Salty wasn’t ready to go. He chased after the boat as the family headed off.

Salty is the same seal that hitched a ride for half an hour on this ferry last week. Hey, whatever floats his boat!
