We arrived in Marathon, Florida to chase waterspouts this week. We captured a nice waterspout from the sea while deep sea fishing at 9:30 AM on Aug 6th. Pics of the spout are shown below. This spout stayed in contact with the ocean for nearly 20 minutes! Unfortunately I forgot my Nikon D70, so all the shots here are video stills.
August 12th-22nd, 2004 Florida Waterspouts & Hurricane Charley
August took me for the first time to the Florida Keys waterspout chasing. As we arrived, Hurricane Charley intensified and we decided to chased it. After encountering 90 mph winds, we left and headed out of harms way. During our week in the Keys we saw several funnels and a waterspout. Next year we will go back!! It was a blast!!!!!
