About 5 km to the west is Kick em Jenny, Caribbean's only active underwater volcano. When there is an eruption the waters around are dangerous because the gases makes the density of the water lower than normal, causing Archimedes Law not to work. Vessels have disapered there......Luckily nowadays there are warnings!
