An Earthquake under an ocean or a sea  causes Tsunami waves.  They are waves with a very large height and large width and they can travel a very large distance.

Tidal waves are due to gravitational attraction. - like  high tide and low tide during new moon and full moon.

Whirlwind waves are formed due to wind blowing.  Wind movement happens due to pressure differences that arise because of temperature changes.
