He was enjoying his boat ride when the former professional soccer player Joshua Phillips came across a very interesting event. He spotted two sea lions riding someone’s boat and decided to record a video of them sailing freely.
“The vessel looked a little off, and we got closer and closer and realized there were two massive animals on board,” Phillips told The Seattle Times. Phillips took the video in Eld Inlet near Olympia in Washington, United States.

There were reports that a third sea lion has been trying to join his buddies, but apparently they turned him away. You know the saying, if two huge sea lions are dangling their flippers on a tiny boat that looks like it’s gonna sink any second, three’s a crowd.
