There are many volcanoes in the state of Hawaii. The island of Five volcanoes make up the actual main island of Hawaii. They are Kohala, Mauna Kea, Hualalai, Mauna Loa, and Kilauea. Interestingly, there are some volcanoes that are never going to erupt again which are called extinct volcanoes.

Then there are also ones that are called dormant volcanoes which have not erupted in the course of the past 200 years and will most likely not erupt again or at least not anytime soon. There are also volcanoes that are labeled as being active that are constantly monitored because they could and most likely will erupt at some date in the foreseeable future.

Those who visit Hawaii are fascinated by all of the volcanoes, active and not active. The chance to see them is a coveted thing amongst those who vacation there. Volcanoes are to be respected because you never know when an active one will erupt which is something that beckons visitors to go all the more.

Hawaii is rich in volcanoes or cursed, depending how you view things. It has three active volcanoes, and one under the sea. Maunaloa and Kilauea are in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Maunaloa last erupted in 1984, and Kilauea has been continuously erupting since 1983 whereas Loihi is off the southern coast of Hawaii Island and is submerged.
