When This Boat Crew Realised What They Were Seeing

It Was Almost Too Late To Escape

Recently, the crew of the Maiken was enjoying a leisurely sail through the South Pacific when they spotted a strange discolouration on the water. They moved in closer to inspect it, but by the time they realised what it was, it was too late.

As they got closer, what they had taken to be a sandbar revealed itself to be something else entirely.

They decided to get a closer look and redirected their yacht towards it.

They wondered what could have caused this expanse of stone to suddenly appear.

The source of the pumice stone was an underwater volcano that was actually erupting at the time!

As the smoke cleared, they noticed something strange just at the water’s surface….

The stunned crew couldn’t believe what they were seeing: It was the actual birth of a new island.
