Guided Lava Hike – March 18, 2013 Helicopter Flight

Aloha! We were able to get a helicopter flight with David Okita,  whom is one of the best pilots on the island and in the state. The first flow that we checked out was the Kahaualea flow. This flow has split into two branches and both are active. At Pu’u O’o, lava could be seen in both of the collapse pits that we saw. After viewing these two areas, we then headed to the ocean entry. While at the ocean entry, we saw the three main entry points and noticed that the southwestern entry point was the most active. After viewing the ocean entry, we went along the coast to view some beautiful scenery, then we made our way home. A Big Mahalo to Dave Okita for the awesome flight. Aloha!
