"A ship captain reported that on December 29, 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 that rises to within 1650 m of the surface (Catalog of Active Volcanoes of the World)."  -Smithsonian Volcano Archive
