“Amazing adventure and wow, the view!”
Review of Lava ocean adventures - CLOSED

Lava ocean adventures
Reviewed August 27, 2013

As others have said, it is rather amazing to see this so up close, and at the best possible vantage point. Helicopters cannot fly over at night, and from the rocks above, hikers could not see the whole plumes of molten lava gushing into the sea, just a few hundred yards away. A photographer's dream, and just awesome to see for anyone. As others say (and it says on their site and/or confirmation letter), you WILL get wet (as in drenched) so bring a dry change of clothes and be careful with camera or other non-waterproof things. The boat rocks mightily as it forges ahead into rough seas (heading out and back) and all are instructed to hang on to a railing with one hand at all times.

This may be a bit 'extreme' for some, but the crew are expert and aside from ensuring safety, offer ongoing information about the lava flow. I did the sunset trip, which was a great choice as the sun set and the red lava glowed mightily. Funny how one enters the boat on dry ground - via ladder - and then gets hauled, in the boat, into the water. Quite an operation and a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. This is the real deal.
