Aloha everyone! On Wednesday, We have cancelled our tours due to heavy rain in our area. Thursday was totally the opposite. Such a beautiful night with no clouds out and a bright moon reflecting off the silver Lava at night. Inflation has still remain high. Due to steady inflation at the summit at Kilauea and Pu’u O’o crater, The lava activity on the coastal plains has remain at a high rate.Lava on the coastal plains have move significantly towards the east and also seaward. By our GPS readings of the leading edge, The flows closest to the ocean is approximately .87 miles away. Very slow advancement has cause a lot of pressure towards the base of the Pali.
Well as for our tours we had 4 tours Thursday night. All four were able to see some awesome flows on the coastal plains. 3 distinct flows were very active with many little fingers heading towards the ocean. What a show our guests had.

Lava is still remaining at a high level in the crater. Halemaumau crater has been very active in the past week and also the Lava level has rose to almost 25 meters below the rim of the crater. As for Pu’u O’o cater the north pit has been showing a lot of activity and also been over flowing Lava onto the crater. The eastern pit has been rising to the rim and been on the verge of over flowing. The glow from the crater could been seen from the coastal plains.
As for our tours. We had 3 tours go out to the Lava flow. All three were successful on seeking Lava. Lava flows on the coastal plains had not advance significantly but had spread through out the area. Many different breakouts were easy to view. Incredible rivers again amazed everyone. Small peeking breakouts to huge long lasting rivers flowed on the coastal plains. Lava flows will be extremely active this week but mother could change that really fast. Book a tour while the Lava is HOT! ALOHA.
