Warmer spring weather certainly calls for more fun in the fun, especially if you’re a whale.

Dana Point Whale Watching Captain Frank Brennan was on the waters off the coast of Orange County, California when he spotted two gray whales, so he sent up his drone camera to get a better look.

What he found was truly an adorable sight to behold. The two gray whales were swimming and twirling along with a pod of white-sided dolphins in the crystal clear waters, almost as if they were playing a game.

“The pair of gray whales could care less about the pesky Pacific white-sided dolphin pod," Brennan told Patch.com. "They could not be bothered.”

“The same pair were rolling around with a pod of common dolphins earlier in the day. One thing's for sure, these dolphins love the gray whales,” he added.

Captain Dave Anderson of Captain Dave's Dolphin and Whale Watching Safari told Patch that his tour also spotted the fun sight near Laguna Beach. "I don't think I've ever seen whales play like this, and I've been doing this for 17 years," he said, calling the twirling and jumping an act of courtship.

The gray whales are currently in their migration period, which can be observed along the coast of Orange County.
