Love is in the air and the water in Argentina.

A snorkeler and his friends received quite the surprise when a sea lion swam up next to them. The sea lion started kissing the man and the video of the interaction went viral and continues to gain traction across popular media websites. The video, posted to the Ocean Reality Facebook page in early July, was shared more than 40,000 times.

In the above video, courtesy Ocean Reality, you’ll see that the animal checks out the divers's face and mask and then showers him with kisses. Then sea lion then notices the camera and swims off.
