For up to 6 guests. This tour is all about the Volcano Park


This tour is all about the Volcano Park. I pick you up at the Volcano Visitor Center.

We will see the amazing changes from the 2018 eruption.
I will take you to many locations including:
Kilauea Caldera View
Steam Vents
We will explore Mauna Ulu where there was a 5 year lava flow
I will drive down Chain of Craters road and will take you out on some short walks along the way.

I will take you into a lava tube (currently closed for repair but may open by your visit)

I will take you out on past lava flows as I talk about some of the different formations.

I will drive all the way to the ocean to show you a beautiful Sea Arch. You will have a chance to walk out on the old road most of which is now covered by lava.

On the drive I will make stops at some amazing views where the past lava flows entered the ocean.

I will take you out to see lava trees, fissures and other interesting formations left by previous lava flows
