Off the coast of Cameron Louisiana, two kayak fisherman got a surprise escort from a very rare pink dolphin.

In the YouTube video posted by "Marsh Life Yakin" a group of dolphins approach two fisherman near the Cameron jetties off the coast.

One of the fisherman Shane Coleman says the group started to escort them back to shore and then "Pinky" appeared. In the second half of the video, "Pinky" is shown moving closer to the group and following them back to shore. 

"Pinky" the dolphin is an albino dolphin which gives it the distinctive pink blubber and eyes.
