(KSBW/CNN) — The whales were out to play in California’s Monterey Bay.

Ten humpback whales swam circles around boaters just a quarter of a mile off shore Friday.

The marine mammals — the size of a greyhound bus — can eat tens of thousands of anchovies in one gulp.

The fish and the warmer waters this summer are bringing the whales closer and closer to shore.
