This might be the best way to see the recent lava flow that’s happening on the Big Island of Hawaii. We should note that we haven’t been on it, but the video and reviews that are coming back are pretty awesome.
Now, you can do like we’ve done previously, walk across the long expanse of the lava fields, hot and dangerous, of Volcanoes National Park, or you can just take a boat there. That’s right, the latest boat tour to hit the Big Island is Lava Ocean Adventures and the Lavakai.
They are located at the Isaac Hale Beach Park and the boat harbor there. They have two different boat tours that will take you to Volcanoes National Park Coastline and view the lava as it spews into the ocean.
The first is the Lava Boat Tour and is specifically geared towards viewing lava. They get you there quick so you have plenty of time to be amazed. This one is 2.5 hours long with 45 minutes of lava viewing and right now, there is a lot of lava flowing into the ocean. You can book online here with prices at Adult: $175 Children: $125 Kama’aina: $150. The boat leaves from the harbor at 5AM, 6PM, and 8PM. Up to 24 passengers can hop on.
The next is Volcano Boat Tour. This one takes you all along the coast for up to 2 hours showing you nearly 30 miles of coast in the Hawaii Volcanoes national park. The Volcano boat tour is more intimate and takes only up to 6 passengers at a time with the price being Adult: $125.00 and Child (12 and under): $100.00 if you book online. This doesn’t specifically tell you if you can get a peak at the lava, but I’m guessing you’ll see some since 30 miles of coastline is pretty much the hole thing.
All in all, next time we’re there, we’re going. If you’ve taken a tour, let us know below and leave a comment, we’d love to hear about it.
