06/04/2012- Lava tour update

Aloha! Awesome tour tonight. The 4pm and 5pm tours had witness a lot of Lava up close and personal. The on going DI inflation event had spurred up many flows visible on the flow field. Our tour guides had reported advancement of the flows at this time. A GPS reading was taken of the advancement during this DI inflation. Activity has increased in the past day. The actual flow front of this flow is approximately 1.1 mile away from the ocean. No ocean entry at this time. Three different fingers had advance in the last couple days. The most active is the middle finger which isĀ  the furthest flow from the Pali(Hill side) and closest to the ocean. The eastern finger is still very active and moving easterly at this time and the western finger which is moving south but have gotten weaker in the past day. That flow will be stalling out in the next couple days. The actual hike is right around 2.6 mile hike one way from start to the flow field. Book a tour now and get right up to some hot rivers of LAVA right now while it lasts. Also check out our new videos of this past tour days on our video page. ALOHA and have a great day.
