Wave Crest

Explain why water wave crests die down as they move away from the disturbance that created the wave?

Short answer but very clear and specific.

Conservation of energy. In this case potential energy/kinetic energy. The waves become shorter because as they spread out they need to maintain the same (or less) volume that is part of the wave. Assuming the waves maintain the same width (distance between waves) and obviously they have a larger radius as they spread out the only way the volume of the wave can remain the same is if the height decreases.
