Event Details

The Wild Cave Exploration Institute is an in-depth, moderate to challenging guided exploration through a tropical rain forest and fragile lava tube. Led my expert scientists and naturalists through our Hawai’i Volcanoes Institute, you will have the experience of a lifetime. Special care is required when entering the Puapo’o lava tube to insure the preservation of this unique Hawaiian lava tube and its features. Access is restricted to National Park Service & the Hawai’i Volcanoes Institute through Friends of Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park. The Wild Cave Program will be offered every other week and is limited to 12 persons/group. Due to the fragile nature of the lava tube and the moderate/challenging nature of the tour, youth under the age of 7 are prohibited. Your registration is confirmed upon payment.
