Aloha Sydney we were so happy to have your join us on our new Volcano Safari Tour! Thank you for the kind review and critique and will be sure to share it with the others. we have to back track on a few roads due to the lava that has blocked them. Hawaii state is working on clearing some of them so that will help in the future for sure. :)

We had been to The Big Island and previously visited the Volcano National Park, so we wanted to do something different. This trip we actually saw water flowing at Rainbow Falls, but unfortunately it was raining, so no rainbow. Edmond took us to the lava forest and fields, which

After reading the reviews on the lava boat tours we decided on this cruise because it was a smaller group. Didn't really know what to expect but it far exceeded our expectations and was an amazing up close tour of the volcano and lava. The pictures really don't capture how
