We were there also. A guy next to us was kinda freaking out, as he thought it was a tornado! I asked him if he was from "tornado country" and he said no. However, I am from tornado country and knew it wasn't one. I explained to him what one looked like, but I'm not sure he believe me. Anyway, it was neat to see!

Waterspouts are still tornados so I'm confused by your post. . Some come from the sky down and others go from the water up, the later of which generally disappears over land. Either way, I wouldn't wanna be swimming near one of those suckers, lol. They are so cool though. What awesome footage!

On our stop at Great Stirrup Cay during our first NCL cruise, we saw 2 waterspouts very close to Coco Cay(Royal Caribbean's island). We were still on the ship at the time and were amazed by them. I wonder what the passengers on their ship(Royal Caribbean)thought though.

Ahhhh! I will forever have a mortal fear of Waterspouts. I was trapped on a roller coaster next to Lake Erie (Cedar Point) during a thunderstorm, and waterspouts started forming and the ride operators LEFT US! 45 minutes we sat there waiting for the storm to pass, I hate those things.

Lol!!!

I was life guarding at Soak City one summer during college break. One day, there were THREE water spouts that formed. THREE. I was getting my meteorology degree at Ohio State so I was in heaven! It looked like a scene from a movie with people running and screaming for cover! I was trying to get a better view
