“Ads a bit misleading”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

They have great gear, but the $9 deal for full snorkel setup is a 1960's full circle mask that keeps steaming up. Upgrade...it's worth it. Easy to rent and return any time. Include maps, string bags to cart it all around in and a very useful fish ID chart. Recommend them highly

“helpful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

we stayed at aston kaanapali shores and could walk across the street to this shop. They assisted us with a broken piece on our equipment, had great laminated sheets of fish we were likely to see, rented chairs and were generally knowledgable and helpful

“gear was fine but ads are just plain goofy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

we kept seeing snorkel bob ads in all of the little pamphlets you get when you land at the airport. they are so weird, it almost kept us from renting from this place. We rented on the Big Island, hoping for that $9/week rental price. but that is for the really cheap gear. Unfortunately we didn't have room in our luggage to bring the equipment with us to Maui and they don't let you return it there and pick up new gear on the other islands (though it is nice if you do have room that you can return on a different island). So, it felt a little like their "$9 per week!" ads are a bit misleading. Of course the better equipment will run you $35 a week, which is still pretty good, especially compared to the rental costs at the resorts!

The help in this location seemed like they didn't care all that much. Not horrible customer service, but just very "meh".

Equipment was fine (we rented snorkels and boogie boards), and prices were fine too.

“Great gear, great prices, super friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Snorkel Bob gets it. Friendly, knowledgeable staff with high-quality gear, very reasonable prices, and great policies to make it easy to rent and return. Have used them before and will again!
