Aloha! The leading edge has advanced further eastward and towards the ocean. Multiple surface breakouts were seen as this flow is very wide. Up on the Pali there were a few surface breakouts that could be seen from our position and from the Kalapana Lava Viewing Area. These surface flows must have broken out from the new tube system that has been created from this new flow.

The USGS tiltmeter is recording an ongoing inflation, which has been going on for over a week. This is the reason for all the activity, which is very high at the moment. Now is a very good time to book your tour. Until next time, Aloha!
Aloha! Another amazing tour tonight. The leading edge has advanced slightly eastward and slightly towards the ocean. Multiple surface breakouts were visible and our group was able to safely view them. The Kipuka is still being destroyed, as the flare up of flames could be seen every once and a while. The activity was very high and the weather was beautiful as well. Now is a good time to book your tour. Until next time, Aloha
Aloha! The leading edge of the flow has moved eastward from last night and is extremely active. There were many surface breakouts that our group was able to safely view up close. The Kipuka that was being covered by lava and burned was further decimated by the continuing flows since last night. Currently the tiltmeter is recording an ongoing DI inflation, which is why the activity is very good.

Aloha! The lava activity is really good and last night’s tour was treated to another amazing show from Tutu Pele. Small rivers of lava were seen coming down the base of the Pali. We were not able to get up close to these rivers, but we were able to safely get close to other nice surface flows. The Kipuka has been further burned and covered by lava. The bottom of the Kipuka will soon be no more. The leading edge of the flow has moved from the base of the Pali approximately 250 yds.The overall activity is very good, so book your tour now. Aloha!
We are now offering a 3:30pm and a 4:30 pm tour. For more information or reservations contact us via email or at (808) 936-0456. Aloha
Aloha Folks! Tutu Pele put on a show tonight with multiple surface flows, small rivers and the continuing destruction of one of the last remaining Kipukas in the abandoned Royal Gardens subdivision. The weather held up for our group and they didn’t get wet tonight. Our group was able to safely view tonight’s very active lava flow.
Starting tomorrow we are offering two different tours. The first starts at 3:30 pm, while the second is slated for 4:30 pm. All guests are asked to meet at our office at least 1/2 hr before the start of the tour. For more information, contact us at (808) 936-0456 or via email.Aloha!
