Current Lava Update - The lava tube feeding ocean entry collapsed August 20th 2013. Until the lava returns to the sea there will be no lava boat tours available. Sunset Volcano Boat Tours are now available to see the evolving volcanic coastline & current eruption activity. The lava is flowing at the top of the mountain (Pali) about 6 miles from the ocean right now. Recent photo updates available here https://www.facebook.com/Lavakai
