This guy (I have it on good authority that it was in fact a male) found us and started being quite inquisitive. He mostly swam around the kayaks and we would loose him when he was underwater, but then he started to become quite playful and did the exact thing shown in this video a few times before I calmed down enough to actually try to film him with my gopro.
Fave frame: the glance.
