(FOX NEWS) – Recreational boaters got up close and personal to the SpaceX capsule carrying two US astronauts after it landed in the Gulf of Mexico Sunday — catching NASA officials off guard.

“That was not what we were anticipating,” NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said at a press conference addressing the private boaters who greeted the craft with spacemen Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley aboard.

Several boats with multiple passengers, including one flying a Trump campaign flag, could be seen on a Livestream that captured the historic voyage surrounding the floating capsule after it safely touched down.

Bridenstine noted that the U.S. Coast Guard cleared a landing for the craft and it wasn’t until after splashing down that the spectators crept close.
