Snorkelling when it's overcast/rainy

We are in Vila right now and have found the weather much less impressive than I'd hoped! Can anyone provide advice on whether snorkelling will be enjoyable in this on-off rain? thinking of Hideaway but open to ideas of other places or other activities! Cheers

Of course! You are going to get wet anyway! The visibility may be less distance in overcast weather but the water wont be cold! For other rainy day activities, a village visit? A trip to the museum vanuatutravel.info/index.php/things2do/43-va… https://www.tripadvisor.com.au/Attraction_Re…

Hopefully you get some sunshine during your trip!

JezebelJoygirl, we were in Vanuatu last week and the weather was similar. Overcast nearly every day and constant showers. We did the Coongoola Cruise to the ocean side of Moso Island. The snorkelling was fantastic, even without blue skies. Water visibility was excellent when deep water snorkelling as well as when snorkelling off the beach. The visibility was also good off Erakor Island, though we didn't really snorkel, just looked for fish and starfish. We also went swimming at Blue Lagoon, which is great regardless of the weather.
