Evening Volcano Explorer-Hilo - KapohoKine Adventures
There is nothing quite as spectacular as seeing the volcano at night, and nobody takes you to where the action is quite like KapohoKine Adventures. Join in a thrilling discovery of Kilauea Volcano. We will take you to the Puna District on the east side of the Big Island, our home and home to the best lava viewing locations. We will drive as close as we safely can before setting off on foot to find the most recent surface outbreaks and ocean entries. Watch as the black, smoking landscape changes right before your eyes as the sun sets. Skylights in the lava tube system and surface flows suddenly glow bright red as the crackle and hiss of escaping gases and liquid rock changing to solid seems to grow louder as the lava slowly marches to the sea. New land is being created and added to the Big Island right before your eyes, just as these islands have been created for millions of years. Dinner is included. Participants need to be comfortable walking on loose, rocky and uneven surfaces (usually all three at the same time). Guests with breathing problems should not consider this tour.
