May 16,2013 Guided Lava Hike Update

Aloha! Inflation at the summit of Kilauea has made lava activity high on the coastal plains and also at the ocean entry area. Surface flows were active and ¬†easily and safely approachable. Nice Pahoehoe flows and also little rivers of Lava were seen on the tour last night. Our tours were treated to a beautiful lavafall at the ocean entry. Lava spewed over the edge of a cliff and continued to flow on to the lava bench. Awesome ocean entry also. There were multiple ocean entries but the most eastern ocean entry was the most active one. All of our guests were extremely happy. Activity will still be high today because of continued inflation at the summit of Kilauea and Pu’u O’o crater. Come and join our tour today. Mahalo!
