SYDNEY (CNN/SEVEN NETWORK) - Some surfers in Sydney, Australia, got an up-close look at a pair of visiting whales.
The giant animals cruised right up the shallow waters of Bondi Beach.
Known for their curiosity, the southern right whales were in no hurry to leave, either -- unfazed by their dozens of admirers.
Officials with the new South Wales National Parks suspect the pair were actually a couple that mated in the warmer waters north of Sydney and were traveling back south as a pair.
A pod of dolphins tagged along for the ride.
