Hawaii's Volcano Lava viewing conditions change daily. On occasion, the best approach involves hiking (distance varies over rough, uneven, lava surfaces. Passengers with asthma and other respiratory problems should please consider our H1 Tour to avoid potential health problems resulting from exposure to fumes.
Very young children discouraged. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park admission included. A light sweater may be needed at the volcano area. Sturdy walking shoes required. As we cannot predict volcanic activity, features may vary daily depending on conditions. In an effort to make this an unforgettable experience, we will take you as close as possible to the volcanic activity.
Please read the following cautionary comments before selecting this tour.
When lava enters the ocean the intense heat produces a plume cloud with dangerous and potentially life threatening toxic gases, super heated steam and hydrochloric acid. Airborne particles are a hazard to your eyes and lungs. Watch for shifting winds that can blow acid mist clouds over you. Leave the area at once.
Where lava enters the ocean the coastline is extended. This new surface is unstable and may collapse at any time without warning. Do not approach areas where lava is entering the ocean.
Sharp lava, cracks and holes, loose rock, and thin crust greatly increase your risk of getting hurt. Falling on lava can result in nasty wounds. Wear sturdy walking shoes. Use sunscreen, wear a hat, and drink plenty of fluids.
If inland flows are present, and you use caution, you may have an opportunity to view fresh lava close up. Follow marked routes and your guides' instructions. Molten lava is about 2000 degree F. Keep a safe distance and never go into areas where your escape route may be cut off. Do not throw objects info lava as this can cause burns from spattering lava or eye injuries from airborne volcanic glass fragments.
BE AWARE, STAY ALERT, and USE CAUTION AT ALL TIMES - DO NOT TAKE CHANCES
All passengers will be required to sign a release or liability form before leaving the airport on H2 tour.
