No not at all

We have only one day to see the park. Would anyone suggest a preference of a helicopter or a boat for viewing the lava flow to the ocean from Kilauea?

It's your choice, boat gets closer but see more of lava crater from air!
Travellkng with a 18month old who travels well in a hiking backpack. Do you know if there are age restrictions in the national park and/or on different trails etc? I read somewhere that young children are either not permitted or it isn't safe...?
