diplomatic fight. Thank you, gio. It would, george. Now daredevil boaters. They spot this water spout and do they head away? No, they head straight for it. Matt gutman shows us what happens next. Reporter: Kevin johnson calls this water spout slalom. Others would call going through these five tornado-like vortices crazy. They were boating. The dog doesn't care. Reporter: They had been lobster fishing when they spotted this rare system with multiple water spouts. Similar to small tornadoes on the water. Sud lynn, the funnels all around them. On the other side of this one, three or four more. Reporter: Intense enough for johnson to keep the snorkel on. Settling right beneath a water spout. How many see water spouts and tornadoes from this perspective. Reporter: So, what to do, get out, right? Then we're going inside. Reporter: And by inside, he means drive right through it. There's the spray, the wind, and that cackle. it opened all my hatches and everything. Reporter: Experts warn this could have been a dangerous move. The swirling winds could have flipped the boat. Johnson disagrees and says he would have done t again. These are f-0 tornadoes. There was no real danger. It was a calculated risk. Reporter: Next time, he might consider a bigger boat. Matt gutman, abc news, miami. Wow. I don't know if I would suggest doing that. And then, then the coast guard has to come out and rescue you when your boat flips over. I hope the insurance company that holds that boat is paying attention as well. People, I can't think of anything more seriously ridiculous to do than this. Honestly, all for the sake of video and for people to talk about you online.
