Years ago I used to have an 18 foot Canadian Canoe, and my elder brother and I were doing a trip down the Murray River in South Australia.
There are a series of locks and weirs along the length of the River Murray to keep the river level constant, and we were in a lock waiting for the water level to drop when all of a sudden a 5 foot King Brown Snake (one of the deadly buggers) decided that he wanted to climb into the canoe with us for a rest due to the swirly waters in the lock.
My brother who at the time was in his 50s, screamed like a frightened girl (ha ha ha) got the attention of the lock master who had a special hook to grab snakes (evidently a common problem with houseboats traversing the locks) and he grabbed it and released it in a nearby swamp.
Needles to say, everyone observing this on the lock had a great laugh at our expense.
Still have the photos in my collection and ocassionally bring them out to embarrass him.
That is the closest I ever want to come to a snake in the water with me, THANK YOU VERY MUCH !!!!

When you kayak with alligators, ya don't worry too much about snakes.
Got that right, or the occasional salt water crock that shows up in Tampa

I live on a 250 acre farm in eastern NC and I was fishing a jitterbug top water lure last summer. Out from the bank came a large water moccasin after the bait. I started cranking as fast as I could with the reel and he was chasing it across the water. I've never seen a snake swim so fast. I've been fishing topwater lures for 40+ years and never seen anything like it. I went to house since the pond is 20 yards away and got my shotgun. I came back and it was still there in the water. Needless to say, that was its last day.

I've seen dozens of snakes but only had 1 try to get in the boat and boy did it try
i wouldn't think they're territorial but rather looking for relief

Here's a small rattler trying to sneak aboard. He was agitated but couldn't seem to get his tail rattling while swimming. Fortunately he wasn't fast enough. Rare to see a swimming rattler in So.Cal.

Baby northern water snake I found on walleye opener in the Kawartha lakes. It was friendly.

Last year I caught a water snake with a crankbait. I couldn't believe the thing struck my lure. I've had them try to get in my Kayak. I'm sure they are just looking for a place to get out of the water and hang out.
