A pod of bottlenose dolphins was recently spotted playing with a blue whale off the coast of Dana Point, California. Dolphin Safari tour operator, Captain Dave Anderson, and his crew captured this video of the dolphins ‘surfing’ on the wave generated by the 80-foot whale.

Anderson told the Dana Point Patch, “This type of surfing behavior is usually seen when dolphins ride the pressure wave created in front of a boat. However, this time the dolphins were having fun and ‘surfing’ the largest animal in the world, a blue whale.”

“Even though blue whales and bottlenose dolphins coexist in some of the same oceans, they do not run in the same social circles and are not typically seen together, making this a unique and memorable whale watching encounter for all.”

Despite its rarity, this isn’t the first time that dolphins and whales have been caught playing together on camera. On at least two different occasions, dolphins have been observed playing with humpback whales in a slip-and-slide game near the Hawaiian Islands.

Southern California has more oceanic dolphins per square mile than anywhere else in the world and is also home to the largest concentration of blue whales between June and October, where they migrate to feed on krill.
