A sea lion has managed to escape a killer whale by jumping into a small boat.

Ernest and Viesia Godek said they cut their engine when they spotted a trio of killer whales near their boat while fishing at Pedder Bay, in British Columbia.

The pair said they soon heard a banging on the bottom of the boat, followed by the appearance of a sea lion at the side of their craft.

The sea lion then jumped onto the side of the boat to escape the killer whales. It is estimated the California sea lion weighed 300-400kg.

The boat righted itself and the sea lion plunged back into the water. The couple said it continued to follow them as they headed back to shore.
