A local photographer caught what he described as aquatic gold when a pod of dolphins had an impromptu play date with a pair of blue whales.

Domenic Biagini recorded the mesmerizing footage from about four miles off the coast of La Jolla. He posted it on  YouTube  this week.

In the video, A blue whale cow and her calf can be seen interacting with a pod of bottlenose dolphins.

Biagini wrote the whales came up to their small vessel while they had their engine completely off.

What followed were minutes of the whales and dolphins swimming freely around each other. The blue whale cow and dolphins breached the water multiple times.
