A possible submarine eruption occurred on or before 20 July 1953 off the western coast of Baja California from an unknown submarine volcano.
The report came from sailors on fishing boats who observed great numbers of dead fish and mud bubbling up at sea 2 km from San Cristóbal Island. The captain of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography vessel "Horizon" reported similar phenomena at another point near the island of Cedros, not far from San Cristóbal Bay. The origin of these events is uncertain.
