Rented 2 beach chairs and a boogie board from the kapaa store. Picking them up was great, with very friendly staff. Jamie and Jon I believe. When we returned them, we were greeted by another staff member who was not friendly at all and charged us 9 dollars for a late fee???? Didn't think that hours mattered with a weekly... More

Two price options available, go for the higher one, it's worth it. Let me upgrade and put my first rental price towards upgrade.

They have two shops on Kauai. If you rent your stuff from one shop you can return it to another one. Or even one on another island. They rent their stuff out weekly. If you take it back earlier than a week they give you your money back for the days you didn't use. At least they did with us,... More

Husband and I rented snorkel gear from a nice gentleman named Richard and took it to Lydgate Park and Poipu Beach. If you're an inexperienced snorkeler (as we both are), it will take a few minutes to get used to the breathing. Don't panic and think you can't do it - you adjust after a few minutes.

I never got any water in the tube and the mask never leaked. The defogger was great--never got any fog, either! They have lots of... More

We stopped in right when we got to Kona. They offered a great price on gear and good advice on locations to snorkel. What more could you ask for?
