Currently, there is no way to visit the eruption by foot as roads are closed or blocked by lava.
Air tours are available from Hilo, Kona and the Kohala Coast. While current activity has lulled, it is still quite spectacular to see the vista of new lava and follow it's march to the sea.
Lava tour boats depart from Hilo daily, but currently lava entry points are sporatic and may end at any time. Check with your tour operator.
