A ship captain reported that on 29 December 1884, during calm conditions, the sea surface suddenly became boiling and seething over an area of 8 x 10 km. It was considered that this event may have originated from a volcanic eruption because of the proximity of a large seamount in the vicinity (Catalog of Active Volcanoes of the World), which rises to 2500 m of the surface (Google Earth, 2014).
