Lots of Lava! 11-25-17

Lots of lava remains if you know where to look: 

There’s still lots and lots of lava to see on the coastal plain right now for those who can hike and that’s great news! It’s not so easy to find right now unless you know where to go but we can get you there.

Lava stopped flowing into the ocean at the Kamokuna Ocean Entry about 2 weeks ago, apparently ending its 16 month stretch of continuous activity. The now inactive Kamokuna Ocean Entry began to lose vigor starting in October and no lava has entered the ocean since about mid November. There’s nothing to sea near the ocean now but the 61g flow continues going strong and there are still some great active surface breakouts across the lava field.

The locations and activity levels of these breakouts do change quickly, but because we do a lot of homework (meaning many miles of scouting on the lava field) we always take our guests to the best activity out there.

Lava continues to erupt from the vent near Pu’u ‘O’o, feeding a complex network of lava tubes. Occasional breakouts high up above the coastal plain have also produced visible lava flows on the pali over the past few weeks. Conditions can change from day to day.

There’s just no telling how long these vigorous surface flows will last or what may happen with the eruption in the future.

For now our Lava Bike and Hike Tours , Lava Hike Tours, and Private Lava Tours are still going strong. Book your tour today for the experience of a lifetime!
