This group of surfers was treated to a stunning sight last week after they were joined by some unlikely companions.

This breathtaking drone footage captures the moment a pod of dolphins cruise into the path of some surfers off the coast of Australia.

The video, which was filmed by Shaun Petersen, shows dozens of the cetaceans gliding through the water on a small ocean wave that carries them, and surfers, past the shore.

Since Petersen posted it to Instagram, it has been viewed thousands of times.
