Tom Satre has a tour boat company, which means it’s his job to see ocean wildlife. But he and his family got quite the surprise when they spotted four deer swimming past. Just over a mile from shore, Satre used his mooring line to help them onto the boat. Luckily, they caught a few photos of this rare event, which you can enjoy in the gallery below.

Now this is a picture you don't see every day!
