A pumice raft is a floating raft of pumice occasionally created by ocean-based volcanic activity.

Volcanic activity in the South Pacific near Tongamarker on August 12, 2006 revealed the emergence of a new island. The crew of the Maiken, a yacht that left the northern Tongan islands group of Vava'umarker in August, reported that they saw streaks of light, porous pumice stone floating in the water -- then "sailed into a vast, many-miles-wide belt of densely packed pumice."

Pumice rafts drifted to Fijimarker in 1979 and 1984 from eruptions around Tonga, and some were reportedly 30 kilometers (19 miles) wide.
