“Awesome Service and Great Advice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

We found The Snorkel Store by accident when we went into a strip mall looking for a lunch place. We had gone to another snorkel store earlier that day and they tried to sell us everything else under the sun. Beware of places that advertised low prices as their gears are horrible and they tried to hook you into other purchases which ends up being twice as costly as what Kevin charges. They did not listen to our needs at all and their equipment were old. Kevin actually listened to us and worked with us. He was extremely helpful with his recommendation of snorkeling gears ---we've never snorkeled before and we have 2 young children (9 and 7). As the store recently opened, all his gears are fairly new. He told us of best places to snorkel on our own as well as recommended an unbelievable snorkeling trip to Lanai. We took his advice and had a fantastic time. The snorkeling trip to Lanai was supposed to be 6 hours long but ended up being 9 hours and felt like it was only few hours as we had such a great time. Will absolutely recommend anyone looking for gears, especially those with kids who don't want them using older gears used by hundreds of others, go here. Kevin will take care of you.

“Awesome service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

Our B&B owner recommended The Snorkel Store to us, she said they were relatively new in town. We were helped by Kevin, who got us the right gear (we are experienced snorkelers) and recommended places to snorkel, including where to see sea turtles. His recommendations were fantastic! We saw the turtles right where he said they'd most likely be. Their equipment is new and in fantastic condition. Kevin stayed open late for us so we could drop our gear off the night before, instead of delaying our trip to the airport. Everything about this store was first class, thank you!!

“Super friendly and $$ reasonable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

We rented gear for 4 adults and it was top notch quality products at a super reasonable price! Mika was as friendly and accommodating as it gets and really made our experience a pleasant one. Definitely a great shop to rent your snorkel gear from!

“Great Snorkel Gear!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

I found The Snorkel Store online while researching for our summer Maui trip. We used the online offer of free equipment and received a great deal on great equipment. We referred two other families we knew traveling at the same time we were. All of us were completely satisfied! Equipment was clean and new, owner was very helpful, fair and friendly to do business with. Highly recommended!

“Great experience renting snorkle gear”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

Just came back from a fantastic week in Maui. Ten of us (ages 5 to 66) rented our snorkle gear from The Snorkle Store. The service was excellent. Had an on-line special for three free days and $3 a day after that. The gear was low end, but the up-sell to $15 a week was well worth it. Offered great sounding snorkle cruise around Lanai'i, but too many of us didn't want to go. On third day had a snorkle with broken valve and they changed it out with any hassles.
Thanks Kevin (and Mom) for helping to make great vacation memories.
