A waterspout is a tornado-like column or funnel of violently rotating air that usually forms over the surface of the sea. It is a non-supercell tornado over water having a five-part life cycle - formation of a dark spot on the water surface, spiral pattern on the water surface, formation of a spray ring, development of the visible condensation funnel, and ultimately, decay.
Waterspouts form mostly in tropical and subtropical areas. But regions, including Europe, Middle-East, Australia, New Zealand and Antarctica also report these votives on rare occasions.
It is crucial to maintain a safe distance if you witness a waterspout.
