How much and where do u rent snorkel gear?

We will be staying at The Point at Poopy hotel and would like to rent snorkel masks. How much are they and where do you rent them from?

Lawai beach is the best snorkeling spot on the south shore. It's by the Beach House restaurant. Also the right side at Poipu Beach Park can be good if the waves aren't too big.

I've always rented from Nukumoi. It's about $25 a week for everything. Their equipment isn't high end but it's fine.

Just how we did it, in the poipu area...

On the first morning that we arrived, we would go down to Brenneckes across from poipu beach, and book our paid activities, like a Napali Tour, or ATV tour, or Zip lining. Brenneckes beach center / restaurant also owns Nukumoi Surf Shop, a few yards across the small parking lot.

By booking only one activity with them, we received a very nice discount card, that took a great percentage off our snorkel gear rental ( I think it was a 50% discount ), and other discounts 15 % off any surf wear, and also a discount off meals up stairs at their open air view restaurant.

Renting snorkel gear is NOT expensive.

On later visits we brought our own mask, snorkel, dive gloves, and de fogger with us, and just rented the fins. Fins were pretty good size and took up too much room in our one and only legal sized carry on, no other luggage. Also staying at Poipu Kai condos, we had washers and dryers in the unit itself, so washing what we used reduced the amount of clothing that we needed to bring.

But, no matter where we travel, world wide, even up to 30 days, we only bring one legal sized carry on.

Makes life easy and reduced any chance of the airline loosing our luggage. That would be a real problem. And, we do not have to wait around the carrosel for it to spit our our luggage. We are well ahead of the masses of passengers who line up for rental cars.

Just FYI....

Also the other posters are right on.....snorkeling areas in poipu....at poipu beach right side of the tombolo,( (sandy spit.).....and the best is Lawai Beach. Small beach, so we sit up on the Beach House lawn, and walk a few yards to the white sandy entry area. Do not try to cross over the dark reef area . Cut you up big time.

The beach hut at the Point at Poipu also rents snorkel gear for a reasonable price, but not as much selection for types of masks as a place like Snorkel Bob's. Snorkel Bob's has some great deals, but they'll usually try and talk you into a more expensive mask.

Just back from Kauai and sad to say you can't sit on the lawn at the Beach House any more. It's roped off and only for Beach House patrons.
