The ultimate way to view lava flowing into the sea is by boat. ur goal is to give you a lava experience like no other. After a quick safety briefing from the crew we're underway. From the get go this is an exciting adventure tour not intenteded for those that are faint of heart. As we pull out of the boat ramp we'll pass surfers, surfing the famous waves here at Po'hoiki Bay. Our first stop along the way is MacKensie State Park a popular local hangout and fishing area best noted for its giant fish including Uluas. Along the coast there are numerous black sand beaches including Kehena Beach. Foxes Beach, and Kalapana/Kaimu Beach which has returned since its destruction in the mid 80's. During most of the trip you can look up the mountain where the volcano continues to puff out volcanic Vog. Just outside Kalapana is the Cave of Refuge, once a shelter for women & children during warfare. As the tropical vegitation turns to frozen flows we enter the freshly lava covered coastline of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. This area shows the remains from the various flows that touched the sea. Regular bench break offs which once triggered, avalanche into the depths below leave amazing cross sections of cooling lava and lava tubes scattered along the cliffs left behind. Drips and lava sculptures blanket the coastline. A once in a lifetime journey to the center of life. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park -View the newest land on earth created daily including, lava sculptures, bench breaks, pristine black sand beaches& when red hot lava in its purest form. No better way to see lava hands down. We observe Peles magnificent Rivers of Fire cascading into the Pacific Ocean. The Sizzling Sounds and heat off the lava will impress even the most seasoned travelers. This special occurrence happens periodically and can be here today gone tomorrow, so when its hot don't wait. report a problem
