A surveillance camera at Seattle’s Elliott Bay Marina recorded the birth of a baby harbor seal on the dock Monday.

Harbormaster Brian Kaloper posted the video on YouTube. He said it happened around 9 a.m. on G-Dock.

“Mom and baby hung around enjoying our maternity wing until about noon and then took off for baby’s first swimming lesson,” said Kaloper.

The dock was immediately closed and locked until the pair made it back into the water.
