SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - It was a very close encounter and it is hard to tell who was watching who.
A fisherman just off Camp Pendleton was enjoying watching dolphins and two grey whales swim a few yards off. Then, after disappearing for a few moments, both whales suddenly reappeared right along-side the boat.
One of the whales are longer than the 18-foot boat and passed within inches of rubbing it.
The whales then disappeared leaving a sense of wonder behind.
