Hundreds of curious sea lions couldn’t resist a closer look at Joost van Uffelen’s underwater camera when he and his team swam with the colony in Mexico.  (Caters TV)

How amazing would it be to spend time splashing around with some of the sea’s friendliest creatures?

One diver got to live the dream of many by getting up close and personal with a huge sea lion colony just off the coast of Mexico’s Isla Santa Margarita and, as the video shows, the cute pups seemed more than happy to see her.

The sea lions seemed keen to take a closer look at the camera which captured the incredible footage, with a couple of them even mistaking it for a tasty meal.

Despite the likely presence of fearsome predators such as sharks in the surrounding waters, the sea lions seemed in lively mood and underwater photographer Joost van Uffelen managed to spend plenty of time interacting with them.
