In the video above, uploaded to YouTube on June 20, a group of sea kayakers are paddling near Barra, an island in the Outer Hebrides in Scotland, when they come across three juvenile dolphins, one of which is trapped in seaweed. One of the kayakers paddles over to the distressed creature and helps guide it to safety.

The dolphins then show their thanks by somersaulting before swimming away.
