1) Equipment Rental Questions
Unfortunately, due to City and County ordinance we are not allowed to "pre-sell" the chairs and umbrella rental. They are available on a day to day basis and therefore, we do not have a weekly or multi-day rate.
For any rental equipment, children and adults who have not learned to swim or are uncomfortable in the water, we recommend, for their safety, not to use the equipment.
We do not rent wet suits and unfortunately we do not know of a place where guest can rent them.
Unfortunately, we do not rent masks and snorkels, the only thing we rent is the fins. We do sell mask and snorkel sets for about $25. If you are interested, please stop by our Waikiki Beach Activity stands on the Beach or Lagoon to purchase.
Chair and umbrella rental is open for the general public, not just for Hilton guest.
We do have a limited inventory of surf boards and once in a while when the surf in good we do run out.
Our beach chairs are rented on a daily basis, unfortunately due to City and County ordinance, we cannot rent chair on a weekly basis. We do have an ample supply of chair so we do not run out.
