About
Aloha, We Are Open! Come on in and I can get you fitted with your snorkel gear or set you up with beach chairs and umbrellas or even get you ready with a set of golf clubs to use at one of the fantastic courses out here. I do monitor the conditions around the island so I can recommend some of the best snorkel spots around. I have played all the courses here on island so can get you the information that you need. :) Hope to see you, I'm open everyday from 8ish-5 except Sunday, open closer to noon until 5." Aloha, Kauai Bound is a locally owned and operated snorkel and golf equipment rental shop with a new location in Lihue. Walking distance from the cruise ships and the Marriott, just off Kalapaki Bay, Kauai Bound will get you set up with your snorkel, beach, underwater camera, and golf rentals. We now carry the second generation Full Face Masks as well as the top of the line standard sets.

I have to echo what everyone else is saying. We stopped in because we just needed some snorkel gear. We were impressed with all of the items available to rent. We were even more impressed with the quality of the gear available to rent and the service. Chris gave us advise about where to see sea turtles where we were going snorkeling and he was exactly right. He told us the best place to enter the water and how to avoid some of the crowds. His prices are reasonable and as I said, the equipment is top notch.

The owner (i forgot his name!) not only had top line gear but was very reasonably priced, flexible with the return times, and had great advice.
He had the latest full face masks which I had never used before but LOVED. I’ll never use the old style set up again.
Daily rentals we not due back until 5 the NEXT day, so we got almost 2 full days for just $9. We went back a couple times which worked out to be less than a weekly rate of $35.
He has access to live webcams at different beaches so he offered great advice on not only where and when to go, but also where to park and even where to best access the water. Much appreciated!
My buddy also rented a set of left handed golf clubs for a day for $20. They weren’t the latest and greatest, but good sticks for less than he would have paid at the course.

We arrived in Lihue and went straight to Kauai Bound to rent our Tommy Bahama chairs, umbrellas, and snorkel gear. It's located close enough to the airport for convenience. Chris, the owner, was the type of guy you would become friends with if you lived there. We rented for 1 week, but he allowed us to return our gear without charge on the morning of day 8 so we wouldn't have to drive all the way there from Princeville. We will forever rent our gear from Kauai Bound when we travel there because Chris has earned our business.

We rented from the owner when we visited seven years ago and make sure that we came back to the same place this year. The owner was super accommodating, and let us keep the equipment longer than the time we had requested. He gave us great tips on the best places to snorkel, and used real time experience to check the WebCams before we went out. We will definitely use him again when we come back.

Hooked up with Chris over the phone from the mainland. Want a great person. Wry personable and informative. He was even more incredible when we showed up in person. Rented our group a great golf clubs and made sure they where right for us and even more so informed us on great courses to play. We even used his beach chairs which where like new. He represents Hawaii so well. Thank you Chris.

The owner Chris was so chill. What a great guy. Gave us a great rate on some rental golf clubs and directed us to a beautiful 9 hole course. I would recommend his shop to everyone. He rents snorkel gear, coolers, beach chairs and more. Great rates.

Chris was great at suggesting beaches for our snorkel trip. He’ll give you a map and tell you good info. Has a great selection of really good equipment with no leak masks...we even went for the prescription masks since we both wear glasses. Located very conveniently near the Marriott resort in Lihue. He has other beach equipment also so check him out.

We rented 2 sets of snorkel gear for a week based on reviews. Perfect set up. Dropped by the shop after leaving the airport. It is only a couple of miles away. Rented the gear for a week- approx $27 weekly rate per set at the time of writing. The owner Chris was very knowledgeable and friendly. He included anti fog drops and a fish reference card. He also gave us a map with good snorkel locations. We dropped off the gear on the way to the airport. No fuss. No hassle. Great experience. Very convenient. Gear was in great condition. Highly recommend.

We love using Kauai Bound every time we visit Kauai for our snorkel gear. Chris is simply the best at fitting us with top of the line gear and so friendly. The prices are very reasonable, and he's also very knowledgeable on where to snorkel and current snorkeling conditions. It's the only place we'll rent from.

This shop was fantastic. My wife and I came to rent snorkeling equipment for our week in Kauai. The owner was so passionate about his equipment and explained how to properly use everything before we hit the water. He regularly snorkels and gave us a map and marked his most recommended spots for us to visit. He found out we were on our honeymoon and gave us other recommendations for good places to eat and visit. I spent a lot of time snorkeling during my week because I am not one for just laying on the beach. Renting the snorkeling equipment was cheap and was the best entertainment to dollar ratio of anything on my honeymoon. I would recommend this shop to anyone.
