"Two mighty agencies in collision. Two antagonist and gigantic forces in contact, and producing effects on a scale inconceivably grand!"

"The atmosphere in all directions was filled with ashes, spray, gases... while the burning lava, as it fell into the water, was shivered into millions of minute particles, and, being thrown back into the air, fell in showers of sand on all the surrounding country. The coast was extended into the sea... and a pretty sand-beach and a new cape was formed."

T. Coan, Minister in Hawai`i, 1841  (USGS excerpt; "Where Lava Meets The Sea")

With all the devastation, heartbreak and loss the current lava flow is causing here on the Big Island...the powerful earth's core still is the most amazing thing you could ever witness in person.  We see it everywhere on video and the media every day over and again, but it will NEVER compare to putting your digital device down and witnessing the amazing path of Tutu Pele in person.  Although we have opened up our booking schedule, we ask that you please continue to respect incident personnel working hard and pray for the residents who have been displaced and have lost their livelyhood due to the Kilauea Volcanoes destructive path.  
NOTICE:  This is NOT a tour for everyone.  We navigate over chop, swell and surf, making this trip a rough open ocean tour.  Each passenger MUST be strong and agile enough to assist his/herself with accessory muscles that will support you and "fade" the rough vessel surges of energy on impact while in transport.  All guests must be in good health with no back or hip injuries of any kind, pregnancy and have enough of the muscle tone and strength mentioned above.  O
ur US Coast Guard rated 49 passenger catamarans the "LAVA ONE" & "HOTSPOT"...which offer an easy same-level dock boarding process are located Hilo's Suisan Fish Market directly to the left of the market hoist.
