So you’ve arrived in Kauai, and your quest for adventure is in overdrive. But there’s a problem: you didn’t bring the gear needed for tackling sand, surf, and sun. As they say on the islands, “No worries!” Cruise over to Pedal N Paddle to find everything you’ll need for your excursions.

When it comes to having fun in the sun, Pedal & Paddle is your go-to shop on the Northshore. Located in the Ching Young Village in Hanalei, Pedal N Paddle has a sundry of outdoor gear and friendly, helpful staff. They have snorkeling, kayaking, paddleboards, camping, hiking, and biking gear you can rent. Instead of paying upfront for an estimated rental time, Pedal N Paddle lets you pay when you return. This policy gives you the freedom to explore at leisure without constantly watching the clock. 

Beach cruisers are a great way to see beautiful Hanalei. You will enjoy the mountains and views of the surf while getting exercise. Your bike rental comes with a helmet and lock to protect your noggin and your bike from being stolen. 

Snorkeling the crystal clear Pacific Ocean should be on everyone’s bucket list when visiting Hawaii. Beautiful tropical fish, shells, and multi-colored corals await you a short distance offshore. Snorkeling in these shallow waters is perfect for beginners and children. You won’t have to worry much about current, choppy surf, or being too far from shore. Pedal N Paddle offers a snorkeling package that includes a mask, fins, mesh bag, and a dry-top snorkel. We like the fact that they provide a dry-top snorkel. It makes this rental package top-notch. A dry-top snorkel has a unique feature that prevents waves from entering the snorkel and into your mouth. This also means that you don’t have to clear the snorkel of water after you dive to fetch a shell as you would with other models. You can start breathing once you resurface. “I can’t snorkel because I wear prescription glasses.” There’s good news! Ask the staff at Peddle N Paddle for a prescription mask, and you’ll be snorkeling with great vision in no time. If you fall in love with this sport and want your gear, Pedal N Paddle has snorkeling equipment for sale, too.

For those that want to stay above water, rent a kayak and take a self-guided tour of the Hanalei River. You’ll paddle upstream on this peaceful river that winds into Kauai for about twelve miles. If you can reach the Hanalei National Wildlife Refuge, you can relax and do some bird watching. Your rental package includes a single or double kayak, paddles, backrest, life jacket, and dry bag. 

Hiking and camping adventurers will find everything they need. Whether you are planning a short hike or an overnight backpacking trip, Pedal N Paddle has the gear. You’ll discover freeze-dried food, water purification tablets, stoves, ponchos, insect repellent, and fuel. 

When visiting Pedal N Paddle, be sure to check out the souvenirs. We think you’ll find their hats unique because they’re locally designed. And with over 100 varieties to choose from, we’re sure you’ll find one that’s perfect for you or someone back on the Mainland.  

Pedal N Paddle is the best rental store to go to on the Northshore. The staff is friendly and quick to advise on the great places to explore in Hanalei. Prices are the best around, and their gear is in good shape. Whether you want to snorkel or hunker down in a beach chair by the surf, Pedal N Paddle will make your adventure safe and fun. 

Insider Tip:
The Ching Young Village is busy, which makes parking quite challenging. There is a back parking lot that can be tricky to find, but patrons say it’s worth the effort.
