TOUR DESCRIPTION: Start at our store in Hilo, Hawaii at our Kapohokine Adventures location located at 93 Banyan Drive around 12:30pm. There is nothing quite as spectacular as seeing red molten lava, and nobody takes you to where the action is quite like KapohoKine Adventures! We’ll drive as close as we safely can before setting off on foot to find the most recent surface outbreaks and ocean entries. The hike is approximately 2 miles each way from our private parking location. Watch as the black, smoking landscape changes right before your eyes. We will hike out to view any current skylights in the lava tube system and explore any possible surface flows. After our Lava Hike we visit a winery for a wine and tea tour before your BBQ dinner. After dinner we enter the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to vie the current eruption activity at the Jaggar Museum. We provide military-grade flashlights, walking sticks, sunblock, dinner and drinks. Please wear sturdy closed toe shoes as slippers, sandals and flip- flops will not be accepted. A light jacket, hat, long pants, and sunglasses are all highly recommended. We do our best to find molten lava on every tour, but due to the constantly changing nature of the eruption seeing molten lava cannot be guaranteed. Participants need to be capable of walking on uneven surfaces. Tour may be canceled at any time and participants should be prepared for immediate evacuation in accordance with directions given by County, State, and Federal officials on site. This tour ends at approximately 8:30pm.
