Your Guide to Vacation Equipment Rentals in Maui
Packing for any vacation can be a hectic and time-consuming process that can add unnecessary stress to what is supposed to be an otherwise pleasant experience. Fortunately, there are options for vacation gear rentals on Maui that can cover your needs for any personal equipment you may have chosen to leave behind at home.
Packing for any vacation can be a hectic and time-consuming process that can add unnecessary stress to what is supposed to be an otherwise pleasant experience. Add the long lines at the airport to check bulky items and the expensive bag fees that go along with them to the mix, and your dream vacation can quickly begin to seem more like a nightmare in the making.
Traveling to an island destination has its own unique set of challenges, particularly if you plan to spend the majority of your time outside enjoying all the abundant sunshine, water sports, and other outdoor activities that the island has to offer. Bringing along items like snorkeling sets, Stand Up Paddleboards (SUPs), camping and fishing equipment, and other such outdoor gear simply isn’t an option for most, as cargo space on the plane is limited and can be very expensive.
Fortunately, there are options for vacation gear rentals on Maui that can cover your needs for any personal equipment you may have chosen to leave behind at home. Read on to find out more!
Beach and Outdoor Gear to Suit Every Need
Beachfront resort hotels are a the most popular option for many travelers, as they provide the necessary equipment for a day on the beach. However, a major disadvantage of these locations is the crowds who use the limited amount of gear and space that’s provided with their stay. Those who set out on a vacation looking for privacy away from the crowds will find plenty of other, more private beaches to enjoy their time with friends or family and have many options when it comes to renting inexpensive vacation gear to transform their trip into an amazing, stress-free experience to remember for a lifetime.
Rental Options to Build Your Ideal Beach Setup
Leave your worries and cares behind by renting beach gear to take along to anywhere you decide on the island! Beachgoers can choose to create a custom beach setup with rental options such as towels, beach chairs and umbrellas, beach mats for sunning, coolers, and portable beach shade cabanas. There are also sporting equipment options such as footballs, soccer balls, Frisbees, bocce balls, toys for playing in the sand, and even metal detectors if you’re in the mood for treasure hunting!
If you’re planning to travel with infants or toddlers and are concerned about how to bring beach necessities along for them, there are rental options as well. Some options include Pack and Plays, strollers, car seats, baby floats complete with sunshade, beach toy sets, diaper pails, and potty training seats.
For those who may be traveling with limited mobility, options are also available and include standard wheelchairs, sand wheelchairs for the beach, walkers, knee scooters, shower chairs, and more.
Create Your Own Maui Snorkeling Experience
Maui has long been known for its world class snorkeling opportunities, as its beautiful, clear blue waters are home to a stunning variety of colorful tropical fish, sea turtles, dolphins, and other marine life. While booking a snorkeling tour is a common activity for many tourists, they tend to be crowded with strangers, and can be too lengthy for those who aren’t used to spending time in a boat out on the water. If you’re looking for a more personal snorkeling experience, Maui has plenty of gear rental options and beaches that will allow you to dive into its fascinating underwater world and explore at your own pace. Check out a list of the best beaches for snorkeling here.
SUP and Bodyboard Rentals
It’s well worth noting that Stand Up Paddleboard rentals have exploded in popularity over the course of the past few years, and it’s for a good reason! SUP is a fun, exciting way to check out the water and is a great activity that they entire family can enjoy together. Both Hard and Soft Top SUPs are available to rent on the island.
If you feel like you’re not quite ready for surfing but still want a way to enjoy the waves, bodyboard rentals are a convenient option for those who may not want to buy one and needlessly worry about carrying it home on the plane.
Camping, Hiking, and Fishing Gear
If you’re more the adventurous type and would prefer to spend time exploring the great outdoors and amazing hiking trails during your stay on Maui, renting camping, hiking, and fishing gear is an ideal way to enjoy yourself without the need to bring along your own personal equipment.
You can choose from items like four or six person tents, sleeping bags and pads, lanterns, coolers, fishing poles and tackle boxes, hiking backpacks including those for toddlers and baby carriers, binoculars, and linen sets with sheets and pillows.
An extensive list of campgrounds on the island can be found at Maui Camping | Best Maui Campgrounds, Cabins, State & Federal (mauiinformationguide.com), and also includes information regarding camping permits, types of campgrounds available (federal, state, and private), restrictions, and more.
