SAN DIEGO - A 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 posted the mesmerizing footage from about four miles off the coast of La Jolla Monday on YouTube of a blue whale cow/calf pair 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 breaching multiple times.
