LOS ANGELES – A couple of friendly gray whales greeted some boaters off the coast of southern California recently, and it was all caught on camera.

The whales, which were adults estimated to be about 50 feet long, came up to a small fishing boat. One of the whales even rubbed against the engine.

A whale watching tour group shot the video from another boat. They said the whales continued to hang out for several hours before moving away.
