Hope that everyone is having an awesomeday! Our July 21, 2016 morning tours were great. Our groups were able to safely view multiple surface breakouts within a few feet. The leading edge of the flow is approximately 0.5 mi away from the ocean and is widening. The tiltmeter shows an inflationary trend, which means that the volume of lava that is flowing out of the vent is at a high rate. Visit http://hvo.wr.usgs.gov/kilauea/update/deformation.php to see the progress and for more info.
We are also offering Bike and Hike tours in which we bike a portion of the tour and hike the other portion. Call (808) 345-4964 for more info. Hope everyone stays safe with Tropical Storm Darby on the way. Until next time, A Hui Hou and Aloha!
Aloha Once again!
Our tours have resumed and we have actively been doing them for approximately three weeks now. The surface flows are extremely active at this time. During the past three weeks the flow has advanced continuously and is approximately 0.5 mi from the ocean. During the first two weeks of the flow making its way down the Pulama Pali, there were multiple rivers of lava, some of which were burning a remaining section of the Royal Gardens subdivision.

Last nights tour saw many surface breakouts and our guests were treated to an amazing show. A surface breakout happened once again near the bottom of the Pali and a nice river could be seen flowing. Awesome activity.
