Waterspout off Castaway Cay
 
Just back from the Feb 9 Fantasy cruise. We had kind of icky weather at Castaway Cay, a bit cool, windy, and with some rain showers. Still had a good day. Took this video of a waterspout visible from Serenity Bay. First time I've ever seen one!

Pretty cool! Were people freaking out- if I didn't know what it was.... I would be!

Fascinating and cool

Wow!

I think everyone was too busy running for their cameras to get freaked out. If it had headed towards us instead of away from us, things might have been different ;-) I was so fascinated I couldn't stop looking at it!

I saw it and took pics but kept thinking should we be worried? I asked a CM and he said he didn't know bc he has never seen one there before. Lol. Great pics and memories though. At least the sun came out for a little while after

I also was there it was cool to look at the waterspout then we made our way to the end of the pier to see more of the waterspout and found our bartender, Andrae and had a hummingbird drink! Yummy!

Wow, that's cool! We were there that day too but were busy snorkeling finding the hidden Mickey! It rained pretty good but we were snorkeling so it didn't matter all that much. :)

We went parasailing in the afternoon and it was fun in the misty weather. I got dunked twice (asked for it!) and each time the ocean felt like the best bath water. Despite the not so sunny weather as we hoped for, Castaway Cay still offered up a great day and now a bonus to see this video! Thanks for sharing!

We had a twin spout on our 2011 cruise. You are in such awe that you kind of forget to be worried. Glad everyone was ok!!

:eek: Awesome!
We saw one on our sea day. It was about a half mile out, though.

Wow, 9 times at CC and never seen one. That's great footage. it looks like it was very cold that day!

I would have had a heart attack. Pretty neat to see on a video.

Has this been fixed? I don't think I would be comfortable swimming in the area where this happening.

Are you being funny? This is a natural phenomena - not even Disney can fix it.

How do you "fix" a waterspout??
