Cancellation of ALL Tours =(

Aloha,

Due to the current state of  the Pu`u O`o vent we will not be provide any tours until further notice. After hiking out into the lava flats of Kalapana, there is no new lava developing and nothing to be seen in Kalapana. We recommend that you sign up for a helecopter tour or look into going into Hawaii’s Volcano National Park after hours to see the glow. We will provide further updates if any changes occur! Mahalo Nui Loa for your support and interest!

Mahalo,

Aloha Mai Kakou,
This photo was taken during our 6:15pm tour on March 2, 2011. We have had a bit of bad weather this week, however the skies were clear last night and we have had great weather conditions today…so far. If you are planning on trekking tonight, you might want to bring a jacket, or some rain gear… just in case! See you down in Kalapana!

This photo was taken from our last tour. The mauka flow (inland flow) is still about 1 mile away, a half an hour walk each way. The surface flow is still breaking out in multiple locations. Come and join us!

Mauka (Mountain) Trail- Active, flowing, amazing

Aloha Friends and Fans,

This weeks viewing was amazing, multiple breakouts, cool weather, great photos for everyone! Our 6:15pm tour is a hit, and we have had to turn people away because our tour fills up so quick! If you are planning on coming down it may be a good idea to book early!

Update: 2/21/11

Last nights flow was just about a mile hike. It took around 35 minutes to get to the flow front. There were many openings to view the moving lava and even more areas that were glowing red hot. The flow on the mountain side is broader than the past few weeks and has a large westerly branch that looks to be burning some forest in the upper “Royal Gardens” area. The eastern end of the flow is right along the forest’s edge and is covering the earlier 90’s flow and moving downhill at a slow rate. 6:15 tour time tonight.
