BONITA SPRINGS, FLORIDA (FOX NEWS) – Beachgoers in Bonita Springs, Fla., were treated to a strange sight last week: an alligator going for a swim.

“Rare alligator sighting today at the Island!” Capt. Jessica DeGraw of Island Time Dolphin and Shelling Cruises, Inc. posted on the cruise company’s Instagram page.

The video shows the gator swimming in the water before coming ashore on Big Hickory Island.

“First time I’ve ever seen it on Big Hickory Preserve,” DeGraw told Fox 13.

According to the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration, it’s rare to see alligators in the ocean since they are freshwater animals.
