Erik Jones of San Luis Obispo paddled alongside more that 30 of them last Sunday off of Pismo Beach — and he caught it on video.

Jones was paddleboarding with a friend, who was kayaking, and stayed out in the ocean for four hours to watch the whales and other marine life.
“Watching the whales was just amazing,” he said.
