Things to Do in Hawaii When It's Raining

Things to Do in Hawaii When It's Raining
Hawaii is famous for its beaches, the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and its diving and surfing opportunities. Rains often break havoc in the Hawaiian weather, however, and visitors may need to run inside for cover. If that's the case, Hawaii still has much to offer in the form of museums, aquariums and other one-of-a-kind attractions.

Atlantis Submarine Adventure

The country's only submarine tour is on Hawaii. The Atlantis actually takes you to the bottom of the sea to explore the island's fascinating marine life. The ride includes a 20-minute over-the-water tour, which takes you through islets and allows you to see the green of the islands. Then, once the submarine reaches the dive site, it will submerge for an additional 40-minutes under-the-water dive. You'll also see ship wrecks, a crashed airplane and an artificial coral reef.

Unless the waters are rough, scuba divers can still go in when it's raining. In fact, scuba diving is a great rainy-day activity; it allows you to still enjoy the outdoors without worrying about the rain. There are numerous dive operators in Hawaii, and choosing one is mostly a matter of preference and location. AquaZone, on the island of Oahu, offers free scuba diving lessons, beginner and advanced dives, daily boat dives, shark cage adventures (divers are in cages, not sharks) and equipment rental. Dives can explore wreck sites, reef life and caves.
