Explanation about water waves ...

What makes the waves ? Do the molecules of water travel very far ? In fact, they oscillate locally but their vertical movement are amplified by the amplitude of each individual circle. Remarks : As you go down deeper and deeper in water, the radius of the circles diminishes and faints.
