A 9-year-old Orange County girl had the experience of a lifetime while riding behind a boat on an inflatable raft off the coast of Newport Beach over the weekend.

Gabrielle Zeni was riding on the tube when a group of dolphins appeared and began swimming alongside her.

Members of her family in the boat saw the dolphins first.

"They were becoming behind her, so we started screaming, "Dolphins! Dolphins!" Gabrielle's mother, Reyna, said.

The family started snapping several pictures to capture the moment.

"Everybody thinks we Photoshopped it," Reyna Zeni said.
