Right on the Kapaa bike trail we have very reasonably priced bicycles for rent. Kapaa Beach Shop has other beach gear for rent such as boogie boards, beach chairs, wet suits and all your snorkeling needs. We have a very large selection of snorkeling and diving masks even if you have a prescription. A great range of fins including those for free diving and scuba, a good selection of spear guns, knifes, gloves, booties and water socks. We have some of the best prices for new bc's and regulators and gauges. We have wet suits for sales for adults and even toddlers, a good selection of rash guards for adults and children.

Snorkel rentals.

I am never disappointed with my rentals and they always know where to go to see marine life! Always great to see them. See you again soon.

My wife and I were looking for a place to rent snorkel gear that wasn't Snorkel Bob's (or any of the other chain stores) - and picked this place based on the Yelp! reviews. Mike (the owner) got our gear together- then recommended five or six places to snorkel based on the weather they were having... and I can't tell... More

We hired snorkel gear, flippers and a beach umbrella for 2 people. It cost around $12 for the day. The equipment was of good quality and was fitted before we left the store. The staff were friendly and attentive and prices seem to be negotiable the more you hire.

Wow! We used this place for snorkel gear, boogie boards, and bike rentals! Their service was incredible! We didn't feel like a "number" to them and Mike and Janie really took the time to help us and offer up suggestions. Like the title says, best experience we had on the island! Good people!!!!!

The owners mike and Janie are awesome! They were such a great part of our wonderful experience in Kauai for the 1st time last year. Great price on snorkel gear for a week and very helpful as our snorkel experience was very limited. This will be one of our 1st stops and we will be bringing an Alaska T shirt... More

The folks at Kapaa Beach Shop are real people, they treat you like a friend and aren't out to empty your wallet like some of the franchise snorkel gear shops in Hawaii. The equipment is top notch. We rented beach chairs (very nice), snorkel gear and a wet suit without breaking the bank. For the adventurous they even have fishing... More

We rented tanks, weights and wetsuits from Mike and Janie. They gave us directions to some great shore dives! Have already recommended them to some friends traveling to Kauai in April. ~Joe & Vickie, Colorado
