Sarah was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G She took care of us right away. She also gave us recommendations for snorkeling and answered any doubt we had. I absolutely... would come back again here for any rentals. Strongly recommended 🏻read more
Rented a beach wagon and two tall beach chairs from Auntie Snorkel for the first two weeks in November. Because we rented three items, they threw in... a really great Tommy Bahama beach umbrella at no extra charge, which we used a lot as we had sunshine every day and it was in the high 80s. How good is that!Callen (the "Captain") and Sarah gave us excellent service on check-in and on the rental return. They are both awesome and great to deal with.This is the second year in a row we've rented from Auntie and if we go back next November, we'll rent from there again.read more
We rented 2 boogie boards online and it was a great and easy experience. Dave was very friendly and the kids had a great time using the boards. Price... was very reasonable.read more
The crew at auntie snorkel was informative and made the process quick and easy. We got a couple surfboards and they helped us strap them to the roof... of the keep and we were on our way!read more
Second time renting from Auntie Snorkel. Great people, very friendly. Scott took care of us. Pointed us to some kid friendly beaches, got to see some... beautiful fish at the nearby reefs.

Wir buchten eine Katamaran Fahrt mit der Alii Nui zum Schnorcheln über auntie snorkel. Die Beratung von Callen Miracle war sehr gut. Sie hat für uns... den aktuellen Wetterbericht angeschaut und uns von Tagen abgeraten, an denen das Wetter zum schnorcheln ungünstig ist. Wir waren erst abends da, so dass Callen die Buchung nicht abschließen konnte. Da sie am nächsten Tag nicht da war, hat sie ihrem Kollegen Scott Johnson eine Mail mit den Angaben zu unserer Buchung geschickt. Scott hat dann alles fertig gemacht. Alle waren sehr freundlich und kompetent. Wir fühlten uns sehr gut betreut.read more
Super easy checkout and return. Great quality gear and beach chairs. Captain Cali was very informative and helpful. I will definitely be back.

Perfect spot to pick up some boogie boards! Affordable and Great service from Sara and Scott!
Sarah help my wife and myself get the snorkeling masks and fins. They were great.
Captain Cali was really terrific, I wandered in and asked about a snorkeling trip, she shared all the options and spent time looking up which ones... had availability for the next day, the office didn't answer and she generously advised I book on line - foregoing her commission!Mahalo Cali- you went above and beyond!read more

Sarah is awesome! Thank you Sarah for all the guidance. We had an amazing time using the paddle board and boogie board!
I wanted to take my mom snorkeling and she isn't a confident swimmer so I looked into getting her some kind of flotation device. I found options with... Auntie Snorkels! I made a reservation online for a float belt and a life vest, so my mom could choose what would make her most comfortable. The reservation process was quick and easy. When we arrived at the shop, the lady working was super helpful. I had researched a few beaches to go to and she was helpful in giving me tips on where to go! My mom ended up using the belt (they call them bananas) and loved her experience! The extra flotation helped her feel safe while swimming and when she needed to sit up to clear her goggles. The drop of process was also quick and easy. Auntie Snorkel's shop is super convenient and close to a lot of beaches in the area. Highly recommend!read more
This place is so awesome. The captain totally set me up. Everything was amazing. I recommend everyone come here.
We rented snorkel gear and a go-pro from Auntie Snorkel and Mark was great in answering our questions online and Sarah went above and beyond to make... sure we had what we needed. She definitely has Aloha!read more

Easy rentals and great suggestions on places to snorkel from Captain Calle. Will go there again next time we visit.
The staff here warmly welcomed us the moment we walked in. We were able to rent snorkels, boogie boards, a beach umbrella, and even a cooler. Sarah... recommended some great beaches for snorkeling (we saw a sea turtle, as she predicted!) and boogie boarding. When we went back in a couple days after renting to switch snorkeling fins (they were too small), the staff happily swapped them out. Great rental shop and we will definitely recommend to others!read more
