There has been an ash plume generated at Kīlauea Crater within the Hawaii Volcanos National Park. There is some ash fall to the southeast of the crater - which would be the Kau district, towards South Point. No significant ash fall is expected.
Currently there is eruption activity in the Lailani Estates Subdivision located in the Puna District on the Big Island. That eruption activity is not near us. We are experiencing no effects of that eruption activity. The Governor of Hawaii, the Hawaii Tourism Authority, the Hawaii Visitor’s & Convention Bureau and the Hawaii Island Visitor Bureau all have released statements saying Hawaii Island is still a safe destination. All airports and harbors are operating as normal. The area of the eruption activity is a Subdivision and not a tourist destination.
If you have questions about your reservation, please call us. Our cancellation Policy is still in effect as no Island Wide State of Emergency has been declared. The eruption activity should have no to little impact on your vacation. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is closed.
Please be aware we can not answer specific questions about the eruption activity in Leilani Estates as that is a localized incident, not located within Volcano National Park; if you have questions about that activity you should contact the Big Island Visitor Bureau for additional information. Be aware that there is currently no lava viewing in that area and the flying of drones over that area are prohibited.
