Views of the ocean entry in the early morning from the west side of the tube system. Also shown is evidence of human habitation in that area.

Lava ends its journey from the East Rift Zone of Kilauea after traveling seven miles in lava tubes under the surface. Violent steam explosions occur as ocean water quenches the lava exiting the tubes, and large amounts of black sand and lava spatter are thrown many feet into the air and help build the littoral cone growing on the shore.

The ocean entry is located near Kalapana at the end of Highway 130 on the Big Island of Hawaii. This area is outside the east boundary of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

Recorded August 3, 2008
