A family out for a kayak trip in the US have picked up an unexpected hitchhiker - a sea lion pup that hopped on for a 20-minute ride.

The little sea lion enjoyed the sunshine on the back of the kayak in Santa Barbara, California, on Saturday, video aired by KEYT-TV shows.

The family, from Orange County, said it hopped up and made itself comfortable, even cuddling up with the father as he paddled with his children.

A crowd gathered on the pier to watch as the pup relaxed and enjoyed the journey.
