A Wealth of Experience
The owner of this shop has years of experience getting out and about on the island. The equipment on offer is born from years of experimenting. From photography to snorkeling to golf, the owner has learned the industry from the inside out. You can find plenty of rental places in Kauai, but it would be relatively easy to come across cheaper or otherwise unreliable equipment.
This shop has gained a reputation for being as professional as they are thorough. The number of tips and services offered is known to impress customers with even the highest of standards. If you have questions about where to golf or what you’ll see when you snorkel, get ready for advice that’s both truthful and helpful.
The Olympus Tough camera is available for rent to catch every wondrous sight both above and below the surface. The shop owner also has a number of his prints around the shop, featured on both canvas and metal. While taken with a different camera, it can give you a better idea of what you’ll find when you’re on your own scavenger hunt.
Snorkeling and golfing are two of the most beloved activities on the island, primarily because they give tourists and locals alike the chance to spend more time in the elements.
