This is the first review I have taken the time to write on TripAdvisor, but I felt that this was such an exceptional place that I should do it.

Daniel and the team are really friendly people - they single-handedly improved our honeymoon with their friendliness, promptness and efficiency - they are gifted for making you feel at home even when you are many miles away.

We rented the equipment on the way to our ferry, and then used it Lana'i, having the cab stop by on the way to the airport (2 min. detour) to return it.

The equipment was top-notch and worked perfectly - we could float comfortably and just watch fish with a perfectly unobstructed view the whole time. Their instructions for how to get the most out of snorkeling equipment definitely helped too.

Anyway, this may seem over the top but that was how the experience felt, so I thought it was commensurate - definitely come to this place without hesitation.

I've been to Maui five times and rented snorkel gear everytime my family and I have been there. This was the first time renting from "The Snorkel Store" and was by far the best experience I have had with any business in Maui. They had the best and nicest service you could ever ask for, they had superb knowledge of where to go for the best snorkeling , there equipment was top notch and in excellent condition and there price's where the ABSOLUTE BEST in Maui. You will not be disappointed.

We used the Snorkel Store after researching on trip advisor before our trip, and we wasn't disappointed the team offered good rates, marked on their map some really good places to snorkel and also some great restaurants, the staff made sure we fully understood how to use the camera mask before we left the store and uploading our footage was really easy. I would definitely recommend the snorkel store and visit their website too before you go as they run good deals!

We rented snorkel gear for 4, plus 2 boogie boards. They were helpful with suggesting good snorkeling spots. The prices are much better than the in-resort shops. Their location is currently downtown Lahaina, but they will have a new location soon in the Fairway Shops in Kaanapali. Definitely recommended!

Pass the other snorkel stores and rent from Daniel and his staff. They are the best. We rented snorkel gear for four, a couple of Tommy Bahama Beach Chairs (built in cooler pouch and handy shoulder straps), and a couple of boogie boards for the kids. All very good gear, great price, SUPER service. Recommended the snorkel trip to Lanai where we saw 4-5 bottle nose dolphins and at least 60 spinner dolphins!! It was awesome!! Incredible snorkel sites as well. Thanks, Daniel!! Let him hook you up with your activities. He knows the best!! Lost my wedding ring in about 3 feet of water in the first 30 minutes on the beach. Daniel gave me a guy's name (Dave's metal detecting) and he found it!! Daniel is the ultimate concierge!! Thanks!! Can't wait to come back.
