Monkeys swimming in beach invade boat docked near shore


Footage shows curious monkeys swimming in a beach invading a boat that docked near the shore in eastern Thailand.

The primates were part of the group that swam on the crystal clear beach in Chonburi province to cool off during the hot summer weather on April 20.

Seafarer Saengtean Chomesiri said they were approaching the beach when the animals suddenly swam towards them and began jumping into the boat.

He said: ‘About five monkeys started swimming towards us. We then gave them some bananas as a friendly gesture. They were not aggressive.’
