Rock n Roll Volcano

Magnificent spatter in Pu'u 'O'o's amazing lava lake, many surface flows above and below the Pali... and a lava delta at Kamokuna that is apparently resistant to collapse, in spite of two radial cracks that stretch across its surface. Back in Paradise pilot Rob Mitchell's office... flying around Pele with Leilani the Hula Girl, Rock n Roll Ducky, Bruce Omori,…

Plant it Forward – The Hawaiian Legacy Restoration Project

In 2016, Paradise was recognized by the HEA for its Carbon Offset Program, which supports the reforestation of native trees in Hawaiʻi through Legacy Carbon. The program allows guests to purchase certified carbon credits that will offset the environmental impact of their flight. This option is offered on most Paradise flights, which span Hawaiʻi Island, Oahu, Maui and Lanai, for…

New Lava Near Vent

Yet another new surface flow near the vent, nosebleed outbreaks throughout the flow field, plenny lava streams entering the ocean... and a huge crack on the lava delta indicating an imminent bench collapse! The surface flow we've been tracking for the past couple months has progressed about half way from the Pali to the Pacific Ocean. Some pahoehoe breakouts were…

The 61G surface flows remain active both on the surface and throughout the tube system. Pele's molten lava continues to pour into the ocean at Kamokuna... her flows rapidly rebuilding the bench...…

Beaucoup Lava

A lava lake in rare form, gorgeous pahoehoe flows above the Pali, and lots of visible lava on the over three acre ocean entry lava delta!

Pele's molten lava continues to pour…

Plenny Pali Flows

Pele's surface lava continues to breakout on the Pali.. both pahoehoe and a/a flows were observed this morning. She has also advanced about a quarter mile toward the ocean on the coastal flats. Break outs continue a considerable distance above the Pali as well, and she continues to build her new lava delta at the Kamokuna ocean entry. Pu'u 'O'o was inaccessible today...…
