A group of guys out on the Gulf yesterday had some visitors coming along for the ride.

The folks at Swift Plumbing sent the Herald this video of orcas visiting them in the Gulf, and they made great use of their cameras filming them underwater.

The footage shows a pod of orcas swimming alongside the boat, coming up for air.

"It's bigger than the boat," one guy exclaims. "Watch out it doesn't come up under us, bro!" another responds. "Free Willy!" someone yells with glee later on.

The gents then dunked a the camera underwater to get an incredible look at the pod in its element.
