Beachgoers along Dana Point Harbor were thrilled when a lost gray whale was swimming near the shoreline.

This breathtaking moment was documented by a drone. While the whale can be seen hovering near a group of swimmers. A lot of people gathered to watch this once-in-a-lifetime sight.

Some witnesses who got a very close look at the whale, commented on how thin it was.

Director of the Marine Mammal Institute at Oregon State University, Bruce Mate, believes that the whale was an outsider who had drifted ashore on his way to feed up north.
