We decided to drive beyond Kapalua to see the blowhole. The blowhole is a lava tube that catches the ocean swells that are then forced out of a opening on the lava shoreline. There are numerous trails down to the site and many visitors. Here is a sign at the beginning of the most used trail:
The sign reminds you that this is not a water park, it’s a natural phenomenon that displays forces that demand your respect and attention. This is as close as we cared to go:
The spout can get as high as 100 feet depending on the size of the swells according to what I read:
It’s loud too:
Pretty exciting stuff for me:
We saw pieces of broken car window glass where we parked. You do not want to leave anything in your car when you park in any remote spot. Tourist beware.
What a great day.
