Would you want to be this close to a power surge of lava like this? These tourists did and walked away unscathed to tell the tale.
A Hawaiian tour boat was able to get these amazingly close, and surreal pictures of a lava flow emitting from volcanic rock on the island.
As you watch the molten rock spew sideways from the island it will remind you of the vast and awesome power of our planet.
When you see how close these folks get to it you'll be reminded of how small we really are.
The YouTuber that posted the video said that the video was taken around the 9th of January, 2017 by Ocean Lava Tours, LLC.
Whoever it is, these folks sure had an up-close and personal experience with one of the earth's mightiest forces!
Would you want to get that close to that much flowing lava?
