The experienced photographers and divers are enthusiastic wildlife conservationists.

Nick is running in the general election for the Altrincham and Sale West constituency for the Green Party to raise awareness of the need for marine conservation zones.

The grey spotted seals are inquisitive and playful creatures

They were thrilled by the friendly young animals which inspected their cameras and flippers.

Caroline, said: “We have been diving with the seals of the Farne Islands and Puffin Island for about 10 years now.

What are you looking at? The divers were delighted by the presence of the seals

“They are an iconic British marine species, and we are lucky enough to have protected them in our waters and saved them from extinction.

“When diving with the seals we are usually in quite shallow water, up to 10m in depth and sometimes right at the surface.

The young seals spent hours inspecting the cameras and swimming around the divers

“We can spend hours playing with them, until the cold water finally means our fingers can no longer operate the camera controls. 

“To be honest, they are a bit like diving with puppies who want attention all the time.”
