- We cannot predict weather or lava viewing conditions. Lava viewing features can change hourly. WE DO NOT GUARANTEE SIGHTING OF ACTIVE LAVA FLOWS. Surface lava may be present but may not be viewable due to environmental conditions or time constraints. When lava enters the ocean, intense heat can produce a plume cloud with dangerous and potentially life threatening toxic gases, super heated steam and hydrochloric acid. Airborne particles are a hazard to your eyes and lungs. Leave the area at once. If inland flows are present and you use caution you may have an opportunity to view fresh lava up close. Follow marked routes and your guide’s instructions. Molten lava is 2000 degrees F. Keep a safe distance and never go into areas where your escape route may be cut off. Do not throw objects into lava as this can cause burns from spattering lava or eye injuries from airborne volcanic glass. BE AWARE, STAY ALERT, USE CAUTION, DO NOT TAKE CHANCES.
