Kauai fun with little kids? Just leave it to the “looky board.”

Little kid with looky board at Salt Pond Park in Kauai

Feeling cooler than cool with her looky board at Salt Pond Park, Kauai.

With our friends just returning from a vacation in Kauai, I can’t help but feel the urge to “rinse and repeat” our utterly perfect trip there last spring. Wow! What a great time for everyone. I had to revisit our photos – and all the posts I’ve yet to post with tips from our visit – and this one, of course, caught my eye.

If you’re headed to the islands with a toddler or little kid (or both), consider renting a “looky board” (along with your snorkel gear) from Snorkel Bob. These modified boogie boards have a built-in window with raised viewing shield (on other side in this picture) to give kids a view of the fleeting fishies below. You can tow your toddler along with the rope, or let your little kid paddle and scoot as thy please.

Kauai’s sheltered waters at Poipu Beach Park and Salt Pond Park (above) were ideal. To check out Snorkel Bob’s locations and find out more about the looky board, visit www.SnorkelBob.com.

Hi, We are planning a trip with our son to Oahu this year and I was wondering where you got the looky board? I have tried to find them online and it seems to be a hard thing to find. Amazon didn’t have them on their site.
Thank you
Brittany

Hi Brittany – I just got off the phone with Snorkel Bob (okay, not Bob himself!) and they confirmed they have looky boards at all of their locations, including Oahu. I think they might make them themselves. Anyway, I wouldn’t recommend flying with one – so hope you can rent it while you’re there. Have fun! http://www.snorkelbob.com
