Didicas volcano is located 60 km off the northern coast of Luzon, Philippines.
Three people who were fishing near the volcano drowned in March 1969 from a volcanic tsunami caused by an eruption of the volcano. Eruptions were located in the northern part of island.
Didicas was a submarine volcano until 1952 when an eruption formed an island 1.5 miles in diameter and about 800 feet high above sea level. A pilot who observed the eruption at Didicas Rocks, saw a similar eruption between Oahu and Kauai in Hawaii in 1956.
