Video shows sea lions relaxing on a boat in Puget Sound

Two sea lions were spotted on a boat in Eld Inlet near Olympia. (Check out the video below.)

Joshua Phillips, a former professional soccer player and Gonzaga University alum who is now owner and president of Spawn Fly Fish, posted the video to his Instagram account on Tuesday. In the two days that followed, the company wrote that the video had been viewed more than a million times.

“It looked a little off and we got closer and closer and realized there were two massive animals on board,” Phillips told The Olympian.

Another video posted on YouTube that was shot from shore shows a third animal in the water trying to get on the boat and being turned away, The Olympian reported.
