We went to this store because of the numerous excellent reviews and were not dissappointed. The staff is extremely friendly and gives perfect advice. In addition the prices and equipment are very good. We had a lot of questions, because it was the first time that we snorkelled and one person was a non-swimmer. All our questions were answered patiently and we never felt time pressure or were pressed to rent more equipment than we wanted.
We rented a floating belt, two sets of snorkel masks and fins and one waterproof digital camera for one week. Because we both are wearing glasses, we took masks with corrective glasses. They have correction up to -5 if I remember correctly. The staff helped us to find the right corrective glasses. We were excited how well the corrective glasses worked! Even though ones two eyes differ very much, one could see perfectly under water. The equipment was in perfect condition. It felt as if one is using brand new equipment.
The small waterproof digital camera was worth every penny. It's great fun to take pictures and videos under water or at the beach. We also bought a table showing the Hawaiian reef fish which is great fun to take with you when snorkelling.
Great friendly service, low rates and high quality equipment - highly recommended. I will return to this place the next time I visit Maui.

Went to Maui for a week of swimming and snorkelling. Bought some snorkelling equipment before I left and had a terrible first day. Mask leaked and the flippers barely worked. Went to The Snorkel Store in Kaanapali and rented some snorkelling equipment from them. What a huge difference. Great guys at the store who rent quality equipment and also offer advice as to where the best places are for snorkelling and eating. Highly recommend.

Go to this store. We rented beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkel gear and a paddle board. We also rented a bike for a week. The prices are really good and the guys in the store were great. We booked 2 excursions with them as we'll. one stop shopping. I would definitely go there again.

This is my first review on any website. However, I felt that by NOT reviewing this store, I would honestly be doing a disservice to fellow Trip Advisor visitors and The Snorkel Store itself.
Kevin (did overlook the fact he is a LA Dodger Fan) and Daniel provided excellent service, pricing and general Maui advice ($3 pints at the Maui Brewing Co down the road on Wednesdays). The store is very close to the Outrigger Eldorado and close to all of the resorts and condos in West Maui.
They rent: surf boards, SUP (Stand Up), awesome cruiser bikes, coolers, beach chairs, and of course top-of-the line snorkel gear. I will not provide exact pricing, but "bundling" all of your rental needs here is advantageous. Additionally, they will hook you up with a great surf lesson down on Ka'anapali beach that is not associated and MUCH better than any of the large resorts.
There are honestly other outfits on Maui that may have "better" pricing, but you will not find the service and attention you are looking for.
Thanks fellas!
