WATCH: 'Mini tornado' forms off Mackay coast
A FISHERMAN has captured a waterspout on the south-west side of Penrith Island.
Jack Spratt posted the photos to Facebook, and said he's only ever seen a few before.
"It's a bit like a ... mini tornado," he said. "We were about (6.5km) from the spout."
Mr Spratt said the waterspout was sucking water from about 100m around and described it as a "vortex on the water".
He said they saw a second one on the north side of the island.
