posted this in NBR, but since it was a boat trip, should be OK here

spent NY week in Hawaii. Did a boat tour to the lava flow on the Big Island. Boat was ~45 ft all aluminum, all welded. 4x250hp outboard powered.
Held 50 people. Captain did great job getting right next to the flow.

Where we are headed



closer



pretty close

pretty steep entry point, but it is adding to the island size very slowly. That said, a 22 acre size area was lost a couple years ago, due to one of the lava tubes eroding the area. It was an area where the National Park had setup a viewing area. Totally gone now

Bunch of homes were lost years ago. There are homes within a few miles of the flow today

additional info here:
