Berthold Hinrichs has plenty of adventures in the icy waters around Scandinavia.
Back in 2012, he was in Woodfjorden on the remote northerly island of Spitsbergen. After dropping anchor, a seal tried to get into his dinghy. Now, the video has gone viral.
Berthold told Storyful that 'seals like to rest on ice-floes but if there isn't ice they look for somewhere else they can rest and keep a outlook for polar bears.'
The seal tried to get up on the boat for an hour with no success ... well, unless you count 'being the cutest thing ever' as a success.
