Baby Sea Lion Hitches a Ride on Family’s Kayak

The world’s cutest pirate hijacked a family’s kayak and got a free ride around Sterns Wharf in Santa Barbara, California.

“A family visiting Santa Barbara from Orange County had an unexpected visitor on their kayak, a sea lion pup! Rodney and Lisa Gist and their three kids spent more than a half-hour with the pup on the back of their kayak on Valentine’s Day. They say it’s a holiday they will never forget.”
