Lava Love

Lots of big surface outbreaks on the 61G flow field this morning…. mostly within a half mile of the vent, and on the coastal flats. Pu’u ‘O’o remained inaccessible to us of the third week in a row… and the Kamokuna ocean entry has been consistently inactive during our visits… reportedly on again, off again when we’re away. Special Guest, Jill Briggs jumped into the Hot Seat again this morning… our lava overflights have obviously become a serious addiction for her! Jill joined Paradise Helicopters’ pilot Sean Regehr, Bruce Omori, Leilani, Surfer Ducky and me for another excellent charter over Pele’s fabulous artistry!Catch the Lava action with tours departing from Hilo & Kona on the Big Island:

If you want to feel the awesome heat of the volcano and take some incredible photos – don’t forget to add our “doors off” option to your tour for an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime experience.
