    I am very interested in doing this hike. I would like to know if we are near the flow in the early evening / late afternoon – making it easier to see and photograph the hot lava?

    I will be on the big island in late March of 2012.

    Given the length of time it’s taken for this march eruption to get so close to the ocean— about how long would it be yet before it actually enters the ocean?

    There is no way to predict the ocean entry of the lava its up to Pele the volcano Goddess!!! If she tells you please let me know too…

    I just did the hike and would recommend the 4am hike if you can wake up that early. A little scarier walking out in the dark, but as long as you’re careful and don’t rush, you’ll be fine. Helicopters start around 8am and are really loud and annoying. If you go at 4, you will also get a nice view of the sunrise. Harder to see the glow of the lava the sunnier it is.
