The friendly animal came up to greet swimmers at Bell Wharf beach in Leigh-on-Sea at around 5.30pm Sunday, August 25 having been seen around the area for a number of days.
Tara Lee, 22, a business development manager for a marketing agency, was out in the sea with a friend from Argentina when she came across the seal.
"I was swimming and my friend said ‘There’s a seal behind you!’," she said.
"I thought it was a dog at first, but then it poked its head out of the water and I realised it didn’t have any ears. It swam past us and then it started swimming around.
"It was just swimming under the water and then popping out and saying hello to everyone."

A bison gored a 72-year-old woman in Yellowstone National Park after she "approached within 10 feet of a bison multiple times to take its photo," according to a National Park Service press release.
The press release said the incident occurred last Thursday evening at the California woman’s campsite at Bridge Bay Campground.
The woman was transported to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center via helicopter after rangers provided immediate care on-site for multiple goring wounds. ...
“The series of events that led to the goring suggest the bison was threatened by being repeatedly approached to within 10 feet,” Yellowstone’s Senior Bison Biologist Chris Geremia said in the press release.
“Bison are wild animals that respond to threats by displaying aggressive behaviors like pawing the ground, snorting, bobbing their head, bellowing, and raising their tail. If that doesn’t make the threat (in this instance it was a person) move away, a threatened bison may charge. To be safe around bison, stay at least 25 yards away, move away if they approach, and run away or find cover if they charge,” Geremia added. ...
There is a strong tradition of naturism in Germany, where in summer it is quite normal for people to strip off in parks. The back-to-nature movement is known as Freikörperkultur - "free body culture" - or FKK for short.
