I wouldn't go anywhere else in or near Kona for renting or buying snorkel and surfing gear, this place is that good. Very good equipment, no BS, very good advice. Helpful, friendly, right on the way to good snorkeling spots, and good prices. Plus, they have all kinds of interesting other stuff to spend time and money on if it... More

We used to get snorkel gear here when Miller still owned it!! It primarily serves the surfers and Boogie Boarders, but can still provide great service to the snorkeler. Kahaluu Bay park is just up the road! I highly recommend this spot in the Kona Bali Kai complex on Ali'i drive to anyone needing snorkel gear. We usually rent a... More

If you are looking for any supplies to make your beach, diving, or snorkeling experience unforgettable make Millers your stop. This store is above the normal Snorkel Bob's or Boss Frogs stores. It is a little hard to find, about 3 miles out of town but well worth it.

We've rented snorkel equipment from Miller's for the last two years. Yesterday we received two full sets for $38 for a week! That's less than a week's rental at Snorkel Bob's and without the crowds. The owner will inform you about all the local spots and has copies of the latest guides as well.

Quality Snorkel gear at a fraction of the price of some of the big name places. Great service and no high pressure sales. We will be back!

My family and I have visited the big Island five times now. I have rented gear from other places, and one time even made the mistake of purchasing some mid-level quality gear. The selection and quality of their snorkel equipment is excellent. If it doesn't fit you, simply bring it back and get the right size. If you compare their... More

I feel like we weren't really prepared for how much renting costs. We also had poor timing. But the two-day rental rates were the same as the full week rentals, which sucked for us because we only needed them for two days. My husband wanted an umbrella for the beach; that was a waste, as it was a flimsy one... More

We wanted to rent snorkeling gear for our week's vacation and Miller's was the right choice. The owner took care to fit us properly, including a prescription mask for my son. The equipment was in great shape and worked perfectly for us. The value was good for a weekly rental, although the extra day we kept the gear for cost... More

We wanted to snorkel at various locations, so we looked into renting equipment from a local shop. The book Hawaii, the Big Island Revealed recommends Miller's, and is spot on. Both price and service are excellent. I called ahead to confirm availability, price, etc, and was teased in a friendly manner. Price quote was $25 for 2 people for 1... More
