When This Boat Crew Realized What They Were Seeing, It Was Almost Too Late To Escape Alive!

The crew of the Maiken sailed through the South Pacific when they spotted a strange discoloration on the water. They moved in closer to inspect it, but by the time they realized what it was, it was too almost too late to escape alive!

We might not realize it in front of our eyes, but the Earth is still changing all the time! It just happens so slowly that we can’t really perceive it. Every now and then, things speed up… a lot!

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

THE CREW OF THE MAIKEN WAS SAILING THE SOUTH PACIFIC WHEN THEY SPOTTED AN UNUSUAL SHADOW.

AS THEY GOT CLOSER, WHAT THEY HAD TAKEN TO BE A SANDBAR REVEALED ITSELF TO BE SOMETHING ELSE ENTIRELY.

246

A HUGE AMOUNT OF PUMICE STONE WAS FLOATING TO THE SURFACE OF THE WATER. IT LOOKED LIKE A BEACH.

338

THEY DECIDED TO GET A CLOSER LOOK AND REDIRECTED THEIR YACHT TOWARDS IT.

431

IT LOOKS LIKE A BEACH IN THE MIDDLE OF THE OCEAN!

532

THE CREW DECIDED TO SAIL THROUGH IT, LEAVING A BREAK IN THE STONE BEHIND THEM AS THEY WENT.

THEY WONDERED WHAT COULD HAVE CAUSED THIS EXPANSE OF STONE TO SUDDENLY APPEAR.

723

THE FIELD OF PUMICE WAS GETTING EVEN LARGER AS THEY PASSED THROUGH IT. THE CREW HAD AN UNEASY FEELING AND UPPED THEIR SPEED.

ONCE THEY WERE A SAFE DISTANCE AWAY, THEY HEARD A FAINT RUMBLING. LOOKING BACK THEY SAW WATER BUBBLING FROM THE SURFACE.

THE SOURCE OF THE PUMICE STONE WAS AN UNDERWATER VOLCANO THAT WAS ACTUALLY ERUPTING AT THE TIME!

1012

THEY ANCHORED TO WATCH THIS TREMENDOUS EVENT. MASSIVE PLUMES OF SMOKE FILLED THE SKY.

1116

AS THE SMOKE CLEARED, THEY NOTICED SOMETHING STRANGE JUST AT THE WATER’S SURFACE….

1215

IT WAS LAND! 

1313

THE STUNNED CREW COULDN’T BELIEVE WHAT THEY WERE SEEING: IT WAS THE ACTUAL BIRTH OF A NEW ISLAND. 

1411

THEY SAILED A LITTLE BIT CLOSER TO SEE IF THEIR EYES WERE PLAYING TRICKS ON THEM.

1511

BUT IT WAS REAL. THE PEAKS OF THIS NEW LAND MASS WERE ALREADY TAKING FORM.

1610

IT WAS ONE OF THE RAREST EVENTS IMAGINABLE.

They were so lucky! Not only because they were able to witness such an impossible sight… but also because they barely escaped with their lives!

While you’re here…
…We have a tiny favor to ask of you. Government think tanks have teamed up with social media companies and Google to censor independent media websites and government criticism. Despite this big tech crackdown on the free press, we have been very fortunate, and tens of thousands of people continue to read The Mind Unleashed every single day. But we need your ongoing support to keep working as we do.. And because we value open and accessible information for all, we would never hide our content behind a paywall. Unlike Fox News or CNN, our editorial independence means we set our own agenda and voice our own opinions. We are not subject to the whims of billionaire shareholders. We are editorially independent, and that makes websites like this an important part in the war for truth and justice. Hopefully we’re wrong, but without your help, we're afraid big tech companies may soon make The Mind Unleashed algorithmically disappear from the Internet. We need your support to keep delivering quality independent news. Every contribution, big or small, will go directly into funding independent journalism. Thank you. Click here to support us
