Please note: This rental is for experienced snorkelers only, who are well versed in ocean safety and proper snorkeling techniques. This includes any and all guests who will be using the snorkel gear.

Snorkeling Safety

Please know your limits, check with lifeguards about current conditions, and ALWAYS snorkel with a buddy. Do not attempt to snorkel if you do not know how to swim or are not in good physical condition.  Remember, Hawaii waters are much different than those in the Caribbean and on the mainland. We have strong currents, riptides, drop off areas, large waves, and jagged lava rocks, all which can make snorkeling and navigating our waters very difficult.

We offer many Guided Snorkel Tour options for those who have limited swimming abilities or have someone in their group who is not very comfortable in ocean waters.

Don’t forget to help save our precious reefs and purchase our chemical free, reef safe sunscreen, which will keep you protected and not burn your eyes! Sunscreen can be added to your rental when checking out.

We also offer Snorkel and stand up paddleboard tours for those who would like a guided adventure to  some of the best paddle and snorkel spots!

Where to Paddle

We offer delivery of SUP rentals to Ala Moana Beach Park, where you can enjoy gliding through the pristine tropical waters and searching for the famous Hawaiian sea turtles.  This sandy stretch of beach is located just outside of Waikiki Beach.   It is easy to get to, the white sand beach is beautiful, and the water is unbelievable.  An outer reef protects the waters between the beach and the shore from large waves, making the waters very calm and perfect for paddle boarding.

Where to Snorkel

There are many great places to snorkel on the island such as Hanauma Bay, Shark’s Cove, Electric Beach, and many more. With our snorkel rental service in Waikiki, you will be able to go wherever you want and not have to worry about long lines, expensive prices, or wondering if gear will be available at the locations you choose.

Q Is there an age limit for SUP?

Our rule of thumb is they have to be strong enough to carry the paddle board on their own in order to use their own board. For some kids this might be five years old, for others it might be 10. For younger children or children who may not be ready to paddle on their own, we do offer the option of putting them on the same board as the guide. They still learn to paddle and proper techniques, but have someone right there, helping them along the way. Plus, when they get tired, they can simply sit down and enjoy the ride. Sorry parents, this option is not available for you folks.

Pricing is the same for this option.

Q Is there a weight limit for SUP?

Our boards are large, very stable, and can hold up to 280 pounds. This is a low impact sport and great for people of all ages, shapes, and sizes.

Q Is paddle boarding hard?

Well, it is a workout, but we’ll tell you it is WAY easier than surfing and a lot more fun for people of all ages and abilities. Remember even if you don’t stand up, you can always just float around on the boards and enjoy the adventure. 99% of people we take up end up standing and we would say about 80% never even fall. With our guides’ expert instructions, you’re up and paddling in no time!

Q Do you rent paddle boards?

We only rent paddle boards to guests who have previous paddle boarding experience. Although Ala Moana is quite calm and protected there are some hazards and changing wind and ocean conditions can turn an easy day of paddling into a nightmare without a proper guide and lesson. Also, even though it looks easy when watching from the beach there are several techniques that we teach you to ensure you have an easy and fun time on your Honolulu SUP tour. There’s a small learning curve with SUP but if you never learn the proper way, it will be a rough day of falling and getting back up a bunch of times. We recommend everyone taking a lesson before renting a board on your own.

Q When is the best time to SUP?

Early morning tours are the best. We know you are on vacation and want to sleep in a bit, but ocean and wind conditions are more calm and peaceful in the morning. Once the wind picks up in the afternoon SUPing can become very difficult, if not impossible. We also recommend weekdays, if possible, as Ala Moana Beach can be really busy on the weekends.

Q I’ve had knee/hip injuries, can I still SUP?

Please call us and we can discuss this one. Ultimately it would be up to you and your doctor, but we’ve taken out many people who thought they would not be able to do it and turns out they love it, it’s therapeutic, and they go home and continue to participate in the sport on their own lakes and rivers. They even send us the pictures to prove it! We’re talking about you, Patricia!! Even if you decide that standing up is not going to happen for you, you can still sit on the board and ride it around like a kayak and enjoy the experience of being out on the ocean and doing something new.

Q Can I book a group lesson?

Why would you want to? Our prices for PRIVATE tours are the same, usually cheaper than other companies in the area, and you get a guide all to yourself. This means whether you’re a “group” of one or a group of four, you have your own personal guide teaching at your level giving you the attention you deserve! We love doing private tours and getting to know each and every guest! We are want everyone to feel like ohana (family) and make sure you get the most out of your day of adventure!

Q Are there sharks?

We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our sharks and hope that there are many of them out in the ocean. It means the ocean is healthy and thriving! For your peace of mind though we can tell you that there are no sharks lurking around in the waters of Ala Moana Beach Park. We go there because it’s super calm and protected and the only big wildlife you’ll see is the occasional friendly sea turtle who pops his head up to say hello on almost every tour.

Q Will I fall?

Maybe… but that’s half the fun anyway!
