Two Enormous Sea Lions Borrow Small Fishing Boat To Take Joy Ride

One day, Joshua Phillips and his friend were riding aboard a boat on Puget Sound off the coast of Washington when they came across another boat anchored in the water. They got closer and spotted a pair of enormous sea lions was on the small boat.

“It looked a little off, and we got closer and closer and realized there were two massive animals on board,” Phillips said in an interview with The Olympian newspaper.

No one knows who owns the boat, how the pair came to be on it, and how long they hung out there, but there’s no denying that it is an awesome scene. Phillips didn’t believe in his eyes, so he captured the scene on video. “I’ve never seen anything like this,” he said.

The video of the large-and-in-charge sea lions aboard the small boat was posted on Instagram page of Spawn Fly Fish, Joshua’s company on Tuesday. It has gone viral and has been viewed more than a million times since.

As you can see, the boat wasn’t exactly designed to handle such gigantic passengers. The combined weight of two giant sea lions caused the stern of the boat to sink lower and lower into the water. Thankfully, the small fishing boat did not go down.

Sam L, another witness to this hilarious sight, also shared a video on YouTube, which included some encouraging words to the owner of the boat. “Landon, if you’re watching this video, I’m sorry about your boat mate.”

The video shows a third sea lion in the water trying to get on the boat and being turned away by the two who were already there. “The boat is so close to sinking. If that thing eats three more salmon it’s done for,” someone can be heard saying in the video.
