Former professional soccer player Joshua Phillips was out on a boat ride when he noticed something unusual. He quickly took out his phone to record the moment. What he captured on video were a couple of massive sea lions gracefully swimming around in the water.
It was a sight to behold, and Phillips couldn’t help but be amazed by the majestic creatures. He was thrilled to have captured the moment on video and couldn’t wait to share it with friends and family. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for him, and he was grateful to have witnessed it.
“The boat seemed strange, and as we got closer, we saw that there were two huge animals on it,” Phillips said to The Seattle Times.
Phillips made a video in Eld Inlet, located near Olympia in the state of Washington in the United States.

Reports say that a third sea lion tried to join his friends on a small boat, but they did not let him. The saying goes that if two big sea lions are on a small boat that looks like it might sink, adding a third would make it too crowded.
It is not yet known who the boat’s owner is or how long the two people used it for fun. But, it is clear that they almost caused the boat to sink. The Marine Mamma Center states that sea lions can grow as big as 11 feet long and weigh up to 2,500 pounds.
