Magical Day of Lava and Science
Victoria_P, Dec 2022
Scott was an amazing guide! We had several private guides throughout our trip in Hawaii and our day with Scott was our favorite by far. Scott brought an unparalleled passion for the Volcanoes National Park to our day, and was able to explain so much about various eruptions and forms of lava. From seeing hot lava through his scope to discovering Pele's hair and Pele's tears, to visiting some of Scott's secret spots--it was just a magical day. Can't recommend Scott enough!
