Landed – White Island
There is no formal jetty at White Island where visiting boats can tie up – a history of eruptions has put paid to that. Instead, the collapsed ruins of an old jetty provides the landing-place. Galvanised pipes, now corroded from the sulphurous fumes, bolted to the fallen concrete structure offer hand-holds for landing passengers as the step from bobbing rubber dinghies. At the nearby beach a white sulphurous stream created by the fumarole in the crater trickles into the sea.
