Best place on Maui to rent snorkel gear or paddle boards. Jessica is super friendly and answered all of our questions. She also gave us great advice... on where to go and what we should look for. After visiting a local competitor that had zero communication skills, it was an easy decision to rent from Auntie Snorkel. They clearly care about their customers and want them to have a great time on Maui!read more

Best place to get your ocean rentals, snorkel sets, boards, etc. Great service and rates. Jessica was awesome👍🏻👍🏻... She gave us all the advice and suggestions we needed for what we wanted to do.

Reserved two SUPs from Auntie Snorkel via website, then wound up needing only one. They issued a refund quickly and easily. If you're staying... anywhere nearby, the shop is an easy 3 min walk from Kama 1 which is a fantastic paddle/snorkel beach!

Auntie snorkel has an awesome selection of equipment to choose from. When we arrived to pick up our rentals, Scott helped us out and was excellent to... deal with. Very knowledgeable on all the equipment and even where to go. He helped us choose exactly what we needed and he nailed it. Couldn’t be happier with how organized the shop is and will definitely be using Auntie Snorkel again on our next trip back to Maui. On returning the rentals, Hugh (the curly haired dude) was looking after the front. Easy going and was not a complicated process at all. Not knowing what to expect out of the trip, we ended up needing the gear for an extra day outside of what we had originally intended and auntie snorkel was great about letting us extend our time! Thanks for the awesome service and gear, will see you guys again!read more

We were so impressed with the service, prices and quality of their gear that we rented from them.

Adorable shirts, rad stickers, a wood carved turtle and a wooden keychain. These folks are here to help and spread Aloha. Never felt like tourists here and never felt that they were trying to overcharge us. We will recommend Auntie Snorkel to all of our friends that visit Maui. Go and support this terrific small and local mom and pop shop!read more

This is our first time on Maui. We stopped here because our condo didn’t have the beach equipment we wanted. I found Auntie Snorkel online the night... before beach day and reserved two chairs and an umbrella. Prices were great compared to the rental shack at our resort. Online was half off walk-in prices. Highly recommend reserving online before your beach trip. And we were helped by a very kind curly haired guy who made the whole process very fast and pleasant. We were in and out with our chairs and umbrella within seconds. Thanks to curly haired guy and Auntie Snorkel for quick service and great prices!read more

With so many places offering daily and weekly beach rentals in Kihei and across Maui, I'm so glad we chose to rent our snorkel gear and beach chair... from Auntie Snorkel. Our kids (15 and 13) were excited but a little apprehensive about snorkeling on our own. The staff at Auntie Snorkel really took the time to fit both kids with the right gear and made them feel completely at ease and comfortable using their snorkels and fins. We didn't feel rushed or like were were just a number, they really wanted to make our experience as easy and as positive as possible. Mahalo 🤙read more

We were in Maui for our honeymoon and were set on paddle boarding. We paddle board in our home state of Florida and wanted the experience in Hawaii.... Mark was so kind and accommodating. We made our reservation at about 12:00 pm and he was complete upfront that the waters were rough at that time in an effort to guarantee our satisfaction. He could have easily rented us the boards without full disclosure but he is a very honest man. We went ahead with the rental and had an amazing time. We rented the boards for 24 hours and because we didn’t have a way to transport the boards back to our Air BnB Mark kindly let us come back the next morning and take them out so we got our moneys worth. This is the best rental shop you will find in the area. Prices are beyond fair and the service was unbelievable. Rent from Aunties Snorkel and you won’t regret it!read more

Scott totally hooked me up at this place. I bought a snorkel in the morning. Lost it. After 30 min of searching the bottom I gave up. I went to da... bottom to look at a pretty shell and saw my snorkel in a little coral cubby! I grabbed it and tried to pull it out but it seemed stuck on something. Upon closer inspection I realized there was a giant eel tugging on the other end!!! Luckily he didn’t think my fingers were French fries. I let him have it and kept all my digits. Scott gave me a super discount on a new one. Mahalo bruddah!read more

After researching a bunch of places for snorkel gear, my bf and I decided to just come here because they had so many good reviews. I'm so glad we... did! Mark is awesome and very obviously passionate about helping people have the best time on their trip. Our first day of snorkeling didn't have great conditions (high surf) so Mark cut us a deal on our next rental. He definitely didn't have to do that but we appreciated it anyway. Best of all I got to see an octopus! I attribute it to all the good vibes from the store. Thanks Mark.read more

We went to Auntie Snorkel for an umbrella rental when our friends went to get a paddle board. I was super impressed with Scott. From the moment I... walked in, although he was dealing with other customers and was on the phone, he was attentive and acknowledged me. I was really impressed with how honest he was with customers - I heard him flat out tell a customer not to come that day for paddleboarding as the conditions weren't right, but suggested another day. Not the best for business, but I SO appreciated the way he handled it and ensured the renter's would get the most of their experience. In my books, honesty goes a long way!I also loved how easy it was to rent items and return them even if we needed to return items past closing. Great customer service and we will definitely give them my business in the event we return to Maui!Also our umbrella we rented was in great condition and we had no issues with the rental!read more

This year we rented SUP’s from Auntie Snorkel. In the past we’ve gotten great deals on beach chair and umbrella rentals. This year we stopped in and... low and behold they have SUPs! And at the lowest price we encountered, nice score. Some places down the road in Wailea were $45/hr vs. Aunties’ $20/1st for hour plus a $9 for the 2nd hour or $35 for the day. The shop is very close to the beach (Kam 1) , and so there is no need to haul the SUP’s by car, just carry them down the road a short distance. We’ve SUP’d in Kauai, Mexico, and Oregon a couple dozen times and these SUPs were as good as any we’ve used, did not end up (falling) in the water once.We really like to support this independent shop. And it is even better that they are more competitively priced than the franchises. Mahalo to Mark, we’ll see you next year.read more

I found this place on Groupon and the deal alone was unbeatable. For $24 (had 25% off student Groupon) we got a week of snorkeling equipment and an... entire day of paddleboarding. Scott told us to come in and we didn't even have to mess with the Groupon because they would honor it. Their customer service was exceptional. Scott went way out of his way to help us learn about the island and helped us get set up with all of our gear and equipment. He even told us we could leave our car in the lot while snorkeling nearby and would also let us leave our car keys and valuable at the front desk in order to leave behind the worries of getting anything snatched while at the beach. Unfortunately, we weren't able to do our paddleboarding because water was to choppy both times we tried, but Mark let us take out the boogie boards instead, which was probably a better option anyway considering the waves in Maui. 100% recommend using this shop as they were the most friendly group of people we have ever met at a shop of any type.read more

Mark was fantastic and accommodating! We rented paddle boards for a full week and he had all the gear to be able to haul it with our rental SUV. Very... friendly and super quick! We rented online, where you get an additional discount. It’s the best priced place in Kihei compared to competitors. We’ve been to the island 7 times and definitely recommend getting your equipment from here. It’s right across the street from a great place to launch on your paddleboards too.read more

Great captain and co-captain. We had a lot of fun to Molokini. They had all the snorkel gear ready to go, and some cold drinks, as part of the... package. We took the 11:30 am trip - but be advised that anything after about 10 am is likely considered ‘afternoon’ and the wind picks up. We couldn’t go inside the crater, and were just lucky enough to snorkel on the backside of it (which is beautiful too!). Highly recommend Auntie Snorkel’s.read more

Auntie Snorkel definitely needs to be your go to for all your beach rental needs!! We first rented snorkel gear (full face masks are where it's at)... from Scott. I cannot say enough about the friendliness and service we received from him! It was very busy, but Scott made us feel welcome and treated every customer with kindness and respect. We later rented a paddle board and booked 2 tours with Scott. He was extremely helpful and gave us his advice and recommendations. We needed some assistance with one of our snorkel masks and worked with Mark on this. He was super helpful and gave us some additional advice on snorkel spots. I wish I could give them a 10 star review!!read more

Amazing service and very fliexible arrangements. We reserved full-face mask snorkel gear and when we came in, he recommended we wait a couple of days... because of the big waves. He said he would definitely give them to us, but knew clarity was close to zero in the water. That being said, he said we could push out our reservation for a later day. We then came in a few days later and he said water clarity was good and even recommended a few good snorkel spots walking distance from the shop. We followed his directions and spotted a family of sea turtles! Again, great service and genuinely nice staff. Very knowledgeable and really values guests' experiences. I would highly recommend this shop for all your snorkeling needs!read more

We rented a GoPro from auntie snorkel for our trip to Maui, and I am glad we did! It allowed us to get so many more awesome pictures under water and... jumping off cliffs than a regular camera would’ve, and for renting it for a whole week it was a great deal! We worked with Scott and he was awesome! Very relaxed, friendly and super welcoming, he did mix up and give us someone’s phone charger instead of the GoPro charger but hey all those cords look the same haha so I would never hold that against him!! We will definitely go back to auntie snorkel next time we are on Maui! Mahalo!read more

I don’t often write reviews, but this one warranted it. In a place filled with shops catering to tourists, Scott and Aunties Snorkel stand out. We... stumbled upon this place as we looked for advice on water sports. As a novice snorkeler, Scott walked us through all the different options and the pros and cons of each, all while managing multiple other walk in customers with patience and energy. In addition to all the questions we had about snorkeling, Scott had several good recommendations about other places to visit and had some good stories to go along with every location! All the stores and sales staff in tourist destinations have recommendations, but Scott’s were relatable and tailored around the plans we already had. was extremely personable, knowledgeable, and willing to spend extra time making sure we were fitted with the right gear for our needs. We would highly recommend this store to anyone looking for a company willing to go the extra mile for you.read more

We didn't happen upon Auntie Snorkel until our last few days in Maui, and truthfully, meeting Scott and popping in and out of this fantastic shop a... few times was among our favorite things about Maui!! Scott was incredible: kind, friendly, hilarious, and ultra-helpful! It was our first time boogieboarding and snorkling, and his expertise ensured we had a fantastic first experience. Our son asked a few times, "Is it just me, or are people in Maui REALLY awesome?!" This was every time after we left Auntie Snorkel. We would like Scott to adopt us, or vice versa. Either way, when we go back to Maui, it will be among our first stops! Stellar people and service - it felt like family! A billion stars to these guys, if that's a thing!

We came to Hawaii for adventure and relaxation with all five kids. First family vacation in years. One day we went kayaking and I was so cold in the... water that it almost ruined the experience. Our guide gave me his wet suit jacket to warm up and told me where to rent one for the week. We went Auntie Snorkel and were so thankful that they had a wet suit I could rent for the week. It was the best money spent on the trip and made the snorkeling and waterfall repelling so much more enjoyable because I wasn't freezing cold. Scott's business card says "fun specialist" and that's so spot on. He not only helped me enjoy our trip more by fitting me with a suit, but he was also very supportive and encouraging... I had transplant surgery 3 years ago and this was a big anniversary trip. Scott connected with us on so many levels, he took the time to talk and get to know us. Great guy great shop. Oh and we LOVE the sunscreen that they sell there too. Locally made and smells so good!read more

Auntie Snorkel is great! Will definitely rent from them next year! Scott is very knowledgeable and down to earth. He doesn’t try to rent you anything... you don’t need and makes sure you have what you need. He also tells you where is best to go to have a great time! Their prices are also very competitive. I definitely recommend for everyone!read more

We found Auntie's by seeing how good the ratings were on Google, and we're paying it forward to let the world know what a good experience to expect.... Prices were very reasonable, location was great, they were flexible with our drop off time and Scott is a total beauty. His positivity (and high 5s) are contagious. It made me envious of his life... hanging out making juice near the beach giving 60 high 5s/hour... seems pretty awesome. We'll definitely return.read more

A great place to rent stand up paddles! The staff member (who is originally from San Diego) who helped us was extraordinarily friendly, kind,... helpful and hard-working. I think his personality and nature contributes greatly to the success of Auntie Snorkel. Even when the shop is busy, he processes everyone quickly yet gives them the attention they need.A 24-hour rental costs $30. It is advised to rent the stand up paddle boards early in the morning before the water gets rough. I found that the water went from completely calm at 8am to somewhat rougher at 11am, but even when it's rough you can continue to stand up paddle or just sit down on the board and paddle. Auntie Snorkel opens at 7:30am. If you rent at 8:15am one morning, you can go back the next morning for another 45 minute (24 hour rental) stand up paddle; they will keep the SUP overnight. Life jackets are an extra $5 per day. This was a great activity on Kamaole Beach I.read more

I've been to Kihei, Maui many times and have rented from 4 others in the past. Worn equipment, out of stock, push to more expensive equipment, poor... service especially if I'm not renting much and higher prices wore me down. I've rented at Auntie Snorkel 5 times now and have been happy during and after the sale. Last time I forgot and left a Fit Bit in one of the pockets of a beach chair. I called when I got home and was told that the chair was already out for rental. Mark was able to contact the renter, get it back and shipped it back to me in Oregon at no charge. So newer equipment (Bahama chair was almost new), lowest prices I've found and great service to boot. What more can I ask for!read more

I watched Mark with people, he took his time with each customer, gave them great tips, good places to go for snorkeling and just general fun on the island. The people who gave him fours are out of their mind and apparently want Mark to be JESUS before they give him his appropriate 5 star rating.read more

Mark was fantastic! We had an issue with thieves that caused us to deal with the police shortly after we got the boards. The boards were unable to be... utilized for several hours. We went back to Mark and asked if there was anything he could do for us and he let us come back the next day and have the boards for the full day with no extra charge. I watched Mark with people, he took his time with each customer, gave them great tips, good places to go for snorkeling and just general fun on the island. The people who gave him fours are out of their mind and apparently want Mark to be JESUS before they give him his appropriate 5 star rating.read more

Mark and Paul were great in helping us get on the brand new Calypso to go snorkeling at Molokini. The Calypso was a great boat. The crew was great... and the snorkeling was amazing. Thanks Mark and Paul! We recommend Auntie Snorkel for tours in Hawaii.read more

We rented a paddle board for two days from the owner Mark Noble and we found him to be very honest, knowledgable about the area and explained how to... paddle board efficiently. In fact, the day we were planning to pick up the board , he cautioned against it, as he said this wind was too brisk for novices. So, he allowed us to delay the rental for a few days.Mahalo Mark!read more

If you are looking for a great place to rent your Maui vacation gear...look no further than Auntie Snorkel. Auntie Snorkel is a small business... dedicated to providing quality rental gear at affordable prices with excellent customer service. We rented snorkel gear and stand up paddle boards during our vacation. Mark and Paul took time to fit us with the correct gear, give us instruction and make sure we were confident with how to use the gear and then recommended great spots for us to get out and enjoy our vacation. The rental pick up and return process was fast, efficient and friendly! I highly recommend Auntie Snorkel for your vacation rental and activity needs!read more

We looked at multiple similar places. Mark has saved us a lot of money and a lot of time. We got advice on Maui attractions, like where it is worth... to go and where not so much, where to eat, where to snorkel etc. He also got us a great deal for a helicopter ride. Thanks to talking to him we had a wonderful time here on Maui.read more

Auntie snorkel was so nice and friendly!! We had been to a couple of other rental places for SUPs and they were very rude and actually wouldn't rent... a board to us. Auntie snorkel's service was quick and easy; we were in and out in less than 10 min! They also gave us some good suggestions on good paddle boarding spots! I highly recommend them!!read more

We rented their "dry snorkel" gear for the week and it turned out to be the best gear we've ever used! Paul was awesome! He gave us a great deal on... zip lining and a luau. We will definitely give our business to Auntie Snorkel again next year.read more

I HIGHLY recommend Auntie Snorkel. We first stopped in at Boss Frog to rent gear. The 2 people working there were obviously bored, didn't feel like... talking and just pointed at the white board with written snorkel conditions. We left and found Auntie Snorkel. A small business owned by Mark and Paul and were impressed by their knowledge of Maui and how they ran their business. As we talked about location, conditions and equipment Mark said, "Our gear is the best". And he wasn't exaggerating. Fit to perfection. Rent your gear from Mark and Paul... you won't be disappointed.

Just got back from a week in Maui and I can not say enough about Paul and Mark at Auntie Snorkel. From day one they were great at working with us on... equipment and trips. Our Molokini trip was canceled due to Tropical Storm Darby and they were gracious while we debated an alternative or a refund. Mark worked to get us on a Zip Line trip the morning we flew out and we had such a blast. These guys don't deserve your business they work to earn it all the time with an Aloha spirit. Mahalo guys.read more

Captain Brian, Jackie and Matt made for an amazing snorkeling trip. It's impossible to really explain how good it was but we caught tuna and saw... whales on the way to Molokini crater. Saw turtles at the second sight and on the way back Captain Brian saw dolphins and Matt cut up the Yellow Tail we caught. It was all unexpected. If you want a personalized trip with no crowds and genuine people then this is the boat. Thanks for everything. It was a perfect day (April 22nd, 2015).read more

Nice people, very helpful. One person rather aggressively tried to rent us more than we really needed, which we didn't much care for. But we left and... returned to rent when he wasn't there, and the young man who helped us was very nice and chill. Reasonable prices for rentals.read more
