Sea Kayaker Gets a Surprise Of a Lifetime When Something Swims Towards Him

When you are out sea kayaking or stand up paddling the only movement you hope to see in the water is the ripple of your paddle as you stroke along your vessel. When anything else catches your eye it’s sure to give you a start!

That’s why this guy was in for a surprise when something came swimming toward him with no regard for it’s own safety…When it got closer they realized it was a sea turtle tangled in a plastic net. It’s almost as if the turtle knew to swim over to the kayaker for help as the net was wrapped around the poor turtles head and front arms causing some serious drag.

The kayaker scoops the turtle up and is able to safely cut away the fishing net and return the him back to safety!
