January 30,2012 Guided Lava Tour Update

Aloha everyone again! Lava activity at both summits is steady and solid. No huge significant changes to the actual Lava lakes and Lava activity has been high on the coastal plains. Inflation has been taking place for every 2 to 3 days. At Halemaumau crater, the Lava lake had rose just below the inner ledge of the crater. Sometimes rising over the inner ledge and spewing on to the inner ledge floor. At Pu’u O’o crater, The Lava lake has been fluctuating but it was hard to see from the webcams. Inflation at Pu’u O’o has been steady. A lot of activity at the summit.

As for our tours, we were able to get up to some beautiful surface activity. Surface flows were wide spread and awesome. Our guests were extremely happy after witnessing surface flows just Mauka(Hillside) of the ocean entry. The ocean entry was incredible. Lava could be seen  entering the ocean from many entry points which was easy to see. Small rivers of Lava and nice bench  collapses were witnessed last night. It was just a beautiful night for our guests. Book a tour now before the Lava flows stall out. ALOHA!
