Photographer's Note

In an adverse sea the landing in Crater Bay, White Island, can be tricky to say the least. Landing is made a the ruined jetty used by the sulphur company that last operated here in the 1930s. Even in a calm sea the landing on the broken jetty can be difficult. The crater is steaming all the time & recently the volcanic risk level has been raised to 2, in a scale of 5. White Island is New Zealand's most continuously active volcano & is situated around 50 kilometres offshore in the Bay of Plenty. It is very coloutful and a great place for photography.
