Sea lion jumps into boat, cuddles with passenger (Video)
James Gilkinson was on a boat a couple miles off Newport Beach, Calif. when he spotted a sea lion pup splashing around in the water.
He was surprised when the pup swam over and hopped into his boat — then started sniffing Gilkinson and rubbing its nose up and down his leg.
Gilkinson says the marine mammal stayed on his boat for about an hour before belly-flopping back into the ocean.
