It has been a big few weeks for whale watchers around Newfoundland and Labrador, as a number of humpbacks and orcas were spotted and captured on film.

Maureen Griffiths spied a pod of orca whales on Saturday on the water between Pouch Cove and Flatrock, as the animals followed along side of her boat. Watch the great video above!

Three humpbacks were spotted by Grant Cudmore as he spent the afternoon kayaking near the breaching whales. 

Cudmore said he is always a little fearful of the animals while on the water, but he has faith in his abilities and the whales' awareness. He said a little fear makes the experiences sweeter.

The sound of a 94-year-old make-and-break engine can be heard in this video posted by YouTube user Twillingater as a pod of orcas swims right by the small boat. 

If you have your own video of a whale sighting, send it along to webnewfoundland@cbc.ca.
