“Fins, Masks, Snorkels all great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Rented some gear from them for a few days. A great investment as many of the really good snorkel spots are easy to access without a tour. They did a good job fitting us and were very fast and easy to work with.

“Rented Snorkel Equipment and Beach Gear”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

We rented snorkel equipment and beach gear from the Kaanapali location. Prices seemed reasonable for renting for a week and the gear was decent. The store employee seemed knowledgeable on fitting the gear to a person (which is important). Make sure you bring everyone in who you are renting stuff for in order to get the best fit. I would rent from them again. If you are particular about your gear I am sure it's not the greatest though it seemed good enough for the average persons needs. They also give you some information and tips on where to go and what you might see.

“Not the same snorkel bobs.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012 via mobile

My family and I have been renting snorkel gear from here for roughly ten years. The prices have doubled and the quality has halved. We rented four masks and ALL of them leaked. For about the same price you can just buy a package of snorkel and fins and they won't leak. This is what we will be doing next time.

“A lotta luck may be required”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

So we all (family of 6) rented our snorkel gear from Snorkel Bob's on Maui - which gave good advice and showed us what to do.. We all went out and snorkeled away (ages 8 to 63) Some of us had better luck than others. (My daughter went over and snorkeled alongisde some amazing sea turtles) while others (like me) were lucky to see anything. Still, it's a traditional Hawaii beach activity - and if your luck holds out, you will enjoy.... It's not difficult, though one of my grandchildren (the 8 year old) quickly got frustrated and gave up. She was just as happy with shells on the beach, so not a big deal.

“Excellent selection.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

first time ever, got the RX goggles and it was worth the money!
renting is the way to go, no using up your luggage space.
