A baby sea lion off the Southern California coastline was tired of swimming and hitched a ride on a boat.

The sailor, J.R. Gilkinson, uploaded the incident to YouTube and it's getting a lot of views.

After the sea lion got comfortable, it spent more than half an hour affectionately snuggling Gilkinson's leg.

He says it was a day at sea, he'll never forget.
