Who knew sea lions were so fast? Apparently, an adult California sea lion weighing 440 pounds and measuring seven feet in length can reach a top swimming speed of 13.4 miles per hour.
So it was a bit of a surprise to see this California sea lion chasing a fishing boat off the coast of Mexico near Rayo, Loma Del Sol.
The sea lion is seen swimming fast in the boat’s wake. The humans on board open the back door, allowing the sea lion to board.
What happens next is truly amazing. The sea lion is rewarded with a huge fish. It’s almost as though it knew what to expect for its efforts.
Treat in hand, the sea lion bids farewell and quickly makes its way back into the ocean.

His name is pancho I actually got to feed and pet him last time I was out there he's a very docile sea lion I don't know why everyone was so twitterpaited about him coming in the boat he did that to me to but I treated him more like a dog because he was acting like one
I know but just this particular video is fake, i am working as a 3d artist for 3D projet red and i know when something is 3d and when something is not, in this case it is, glad to revealed it for ya :)
There are a lot of videos on Youtube with Sea Lions that jumps on board on ships.. So it's not an unusual thing! I'm a graphic designer and i see nothing in this video that maks me think that 3d animations has been used to create this video.. Just search 'Sea Lion Boat' and watch for yourself :)
+USCFlash OMFG There was no fucking Sea lion... where the fuck did you see.... oh wait, this is a normal conversation... Ok, you are right, there was a Lion in the Sea.
Hahaha, Nice talking to you mate hope your day is lovely and enjoy the rest of your week :)
No problem....understand what you are saying, and I appreciate your cordial reply....far too often on youtube, these harmless discussions turn in to massive, stupid fights over nothing for no reason.
So let's just agree that there may not have been a boat....but there was definitely a sea lion :)
+USCFlash Hi, You make some valid points and you went to some effort to reply, so I should at least comment back.
I am at work so can't say too much, Tbh I am going on my experience alone, you are correct we will never know, it's just someone about the water that makes me feel it's not a prop. Yes there is white on top, that happens with all objects moving through water, I was more implying under the water. Had to explain in writing, but the whitewash seems on top "caused from boat" rather then under the surface like a prop.
Props slice the water and creates air bubbles, thus chopping up the water underneath.
We could be wrong, this might even be fake and there was no boat! :)
Frankly, unless you can tell the model of this particular boat. there is no way you can claim jet propulsion with any degree of certainty
as for the water, looks pretty choppy & white to me....look at the low speed....dont forget, they are not going very fast....at that slow level, a sea lion can pace them leisurely, as this one is doing....sea lions have no trouble cruising at around 11-13 mph like this one and with a quick 20-25 mph burst actually accelerate to a faster speed to jump up and propel itself on to the boat, at speed.
Also, this is a larger, deep sea/off shore fishing boat based in cabo san lucas.
Larger day trip fishing boats, use props almost exclusively, mainly for a couple of important reasons.
1. They are more efficient costwise, for a big fishing trip every day, compared to jets. If you run a fishing charter boat in cabo, you need to compete with many other charterers....you need to find cost savings wherever you can without sacrificing performance.
2. Reliability - if your jet goes over kelp, kelp beds, seaweed, trash, anything else random and floating....who is going in to the water to unclog the intake and can you risk it happening with paying customers who are getting annoyed, on board? or in rough seas?
over time and especially in the moment, fishing boats need to be totally reliable and always operational. Big equipment problems in can be extremely bad for business.
3. choppy and big seas - off shore fishing, rough water fishing, big swells, you dont want the type of things that occur in rough seas with jet pumps, in terms of a nice smooth ride for your guests. Jets make a boat handle much more roughly in choppy/rough seas
4. jets are louder engine wise....you want your guests, who are paying big money, to be able to talk to each other.
but who knows....you may be right and if you identify the model and/or find out the fishing charter company and ask them what type of boat it is and then show it to me, i will respectively defer to those facts and compliment you on your foreknowledge.
Until then, I have to respectfully disagree, it is most likely propellers. propellers are the choice for the fast majority of larger commercial/charter fishing boats. propellers still remain safer, more proven, more reliable, more durable over the long haul, and that is most important to fishing boats like this one.
IMO, of course.
+USCFlash Hmm, I think this is Jet propulsion and how I know, look at the water, Prop boats chop up the water more, leaves a "white wash" effect, however with Jet power the water more comes out in a thrust effect "Like when a ore moves underwater and gives that flat like illusion above it"
Christ guys, act like humans. Frank, yeah sea lions are that fast and travelling in the boat's wake makes it even easier for them to move quickly. I don't know why people couldn't just say that.
21RB: Adobe added video features to Photoshop a handful of years ago, generally speaking it isn't super widely used but you're still wrong so try being less of a dick. Also using the term 'photoshopped' to colloquially mean 'edited' is pretty common. Now go google what colloquially means.
hulk hogan Let me guess you have been the stupid one and have tried to approach them during breeding season on the beach somewhere to pet a cub, and were shocked that the mother's were aggressive.
Pizzapingvin is 100% right.
He look cute because they have cutie face, but shit I don't trust animal as well they don't trust us!! That man should not do that again, what about if is a shark, I bet is gonna open the little gate so he can get the damn fish.. hell no!!
+Leggo My Ego They eat dogs and cats in China. They boil puppies alive in oil because they believe the suffering enhances the flavor. They have a special holiday wheel they slaughter them in the streets. Any pets not secured go missing at this time. In the markets, the dogs are in cages anf they see their pack members killed in front of them. Chinese will eat absolutely anything that doesn't eat them first.
+S Chang Actually dog meat is only consumed in one or two cities in China, most of the Chinese (and other asians) population advocate against dog consumption. Western mentality is so ignorant they assume ALL asians consume dog meat and sadly turned it into a Racist stereotype, thats like saying ALL Americans are Hill Billy Bonkers!

Hi, my name is Ross Williams . Let me share a personal story with you. Back in 2007, I held an excellent position at a large IT company with a nice monthly salary. By 2008, the great recession hit. The company ran into financial problems and was forced to lay off over 50% of its staff. Unfortunately for me, I was included.
So there I was stranded, unemployed, with all the bills to pay and a family to support. Where I lived, such jobs werent easy to come by. So I decided to do a little research. I spent many sleepless nights on the web just searching for something to do, anything that could help support me and my family. I just wanted a way to make money, and not lose it, as I soon found to be the case with numerous internet scams.
Just like you, I often stumbled upon all types of web sites offering me some money matrix scheme, promising me all the money in the world. Yeah, right! From stuffing envelopes, Multi Level Marketing, High Yield Investment Programs, to selling all types of useless products. You name it, Ive been there, done that.
Finally, I came across something that worked.
Online advertising has skyrocketed over the past few years. In 2015, companies spent close to $50 billion advertising online. That figure is expected to increase substantially in 2016. What does this mean for you? A lot more money could be going into your bank account this year. Thats IF you take advantage of this secret system.
Companies worldwide are desperately searching for people just like you to type up their ads and post them online, and theyll pay you nicely in return. Its a win-win situation. They get more customers, you get paid. Its as simple as that. These companies have cash, LOTS of it and theyre eager to share it with you. All types of individuals around the world are using this system to make more money than they ever could working in a boring, dead-end job. You can work part-time or full-time, its all up to you.
