LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. — An amazing moment was caught on camera this weekend off the coast of Southern California.

Chuck Patterson and Trish Meyler recorded hundreds of dolphins following their boat on Sunday, frolicking in water near Laguna Beach and Dana Point south of Los Angeles.

Patterson said in a Facebook post that “Mother Nature’s amazing wonders never disappoint” and it highlights “the importance in protecting this magic by cleaning up our oceans and use of single use plastics.”

Meyler said on Instagram the dolphins were having a great time and they “could hear them laughing.”

She described it as “magic” and a reminder of "all the beauty that lives in the sea.”
