Video shows dolphins having fun with whales in Monterey Bay

MONTEREY BAY, Calif. (KGO) -- Drone video recently captured a triple treat in the waters of Monterey Bay. A group of dolphins encountered a gray and humpback whale. The dolphins intentionally splashed near the heads of the whales, which caused them to lunge forward, creating waves for the dolphins to surf in.
