Not only did we get awesome quality snorkel gear, we got some help booking excursions too. We weren’t sure which catamaran of Nepali coast to take. Richard helped us based on what kind of tour we were looking for. And it was perfect. He also...More

Clearly, the older gentlemen with glasses is a problem as you can read from other reviews. We had the experience of being bullied by the older man with glasses around his nose. We walked in and just wanted to walk around to see what rentals...More

We picked up the last of our group from the airport and then stopped by Snorkel Bob's to rent snorkel gear for the week. Richard skillfully navigated our group, very quickly outfitting us with specialized and non-specialized gear. Another large group came in, some other...More

At The Lawaii Beach Snorkel Bob's Greg is an expert in helping his people to make the right choices. I would highly recommend his advice to customers as he is the most knowlegable person in this sport I have encountered

They rent very good snorkeling gear. First rented from Snorkel Bob's on Oahu. Then on Maui and Kauai because they have best gear.

Three of us rented snorkel gear from here. Must have been the cheapest snorkel gear on the market. We couldn’t use them. The fins were by far the worst. Almost instantly started causing blisters / abrasions on all three of us. The cheap equipment isn’t...More

I read a review that was negative so had to post this. I have no relation to Snorkel Bob's. They make really good masks which are comfortable and do not leak, if you check for proper size. The snorkels are fantastic and let you breath...More

This shop has a good selection and can get you in and out quickly. But the equipment seemed somewhat expensive (we spent $230 for a week rental on 5 sets of their higher quality gear) Even this rental gear was only okay, though. The flippers...More

January surf may be high and cloud up the water in the north. If you go north try Tunnels and Kee beaches. Surf will be less on the south side at Poipu Beach Park and a small beach next to a nice restaurant and a Boss Frog... More
