Whirlpools occur when rushing tide water collides with an obstacle, usually the coastline, forming a swirling reverse current.
A whirlpool is a swirling body of water that is produced by ocean tides. Whirlpools are caused by strong currents that are caused by tides. These currents usually move around in a circular manner and anything that is caught up in them can be sucked to the floor of the river or ocean.
