Ok so they say the waters are rough and it's like being on a white water rafting trip. WRONG !! Imagine being on a runaway boat, sitting in a metal seat with a small wafer of a seat cushion, being violently tossed into the air and slammed into concrete. That's a pleasant trip compared to what we experienced. It took 45 minutes to get to the lava flows. And yes they were spectacular !! But the ship, in my opinion got dangerously close to the lava flows. We only stayed for 22 minutes, I counted, and the trip back, 45 minutes in the dark, was rough, painful and terrifying !! They were trying to rush back to shore to load up the boat for the next night tour. This outfit is dangerous and WAY overpriced. They had the nerve to shill for tips at the end !! Look for a smaller craft, something safer at half the price.
