What a pleasant surprise this place was! I stopped at the first local shop I saw in Kapa'a where my husband and I could rent snorkel gear and the people here were incredibly great. They were super friendly and accommodating and had the best gear we've used to date. Prescription masks were available (a necessity for us) and the snorkels... More

Kapaa Beach Shop folks are simply fantastic! If you need SCUBA gear for a week, their rates are best and equipment is solid. We have rented CBDs, regulators, lights and tanks for a week and got an awesome deal, with incredible customer care. We are looking forward to return the island and the shop one day!

The owners are so nice and really interested in making sure you get the right gear! They helped me try on a ton of masks to find the right fit and even busted out a brand new one for me to rent (which I ended up buying!). Their prices are super reasonable, too.

I was able to exchange a board for beach umbrella and chair for no extra fee. Nothing can beat the price and gears are in good condition too. Very friendly and nice staffs. Would highly recommended this place if you are going to spend several days at North beaches of Kauai.

This was one of the cheapest activities we did on Kauai, but in my opinion it might have been the most fun! My wife might disagree, but she had fun too. It was a gorgeous bike ride on the trail behind the shop along the coastline. The customer service was great, very friendly and welcoming.

Great prices. Rent by the week. Friendly. Ask about snorkeling beaches. Closed Saturday so plan ahead :) We rode on an 8 mile all beach trail just behind the shop. We will be back.

Mike and Janie treated me like family when I went in to rent snorkel gear recently. This was my second time with them and I will always use them in the future. Their rental rates are very competitive with the other shops, their equipment is in excellent condition and they always give really good advice about where to go for... More

We rent our beach gear (chairs, umbrella, boogie board and cooler) every time we visit the island. Then we always come back to rent bikes for a few hrs. Janie and Mike make us feel like old friends. Everything is always in great conditions and the rates are better than anything else we could find. Don't bother looking anywhere else.... More

My husband and I first went to Kapaa Beach Shop to rent bikes to ride down the coast to Donkey Beach. We ended up renting a tandem bike, and since we told the owners that we wanted to hang out at Donkey Beach, they gave us a basket and bike lock at no additional charge! They even gave us a... More

Stopped and rented a bike and took it on the bike path for a nice bike ride where we saw some whales off the coast and we enjoyed the breeze along the bike path also. They also have snorkel gear for you rent definitely worth the stop
