He Discovered a Beach in the Middle of the Ocean. When He Got Closer…Unbelievable.

The ocean is often a mysterious place and you never know what you’ll find when sailing across it. When a sailing crew of the Maiken went out for a sailing excursion through the South Pacific, they noticed something strange with the color of the water.

As they got closer, they saw that appeared to be a sandbar in the middle of the ocean. They couldn’t believe their eyes so they decided to sail a little closer to inspect the unusual sandbar they were seeing.

As they moved in closer, they discovered it was actually pumice stone floating on the surface of the water.

But as they were sailing through it, they noticed the field of pumice stone was actually getting larger quickly.

This made them a little nervous so they decided to increase their speed.

Once they were a safe distance away, they felt underwater rumblings and soon noticed a plume of smoke.
