During our week in Kona we made three stops at Boss Frogs for gear. Two staff encounters were adequate, but our visits with Joy were a joy. We rented two basic sets of fins and one mask/snorkel set. I didn't really know what I wanted in a mask, and ended up exchanging my mask twice for different fit. They were... More

Joy was a fabulous fitter; we loved the prices and Joy's flexibility. We looked at so many snorkel rental places & we're so glad we picked Boss Frog's.

We rented snorkel gear for a week. It was so convenient and easy to rent, took maybe 10 minutes. We also booked a manta ray snorkel with them that was awesome. Tori and Lee were very helpful!!! I would suggest this place to anyone! They can pretty much set you up with an excursion you are looking for! :)

Got outfitted with well-priced, comfortable snorkel gear, and got a good-price deal on swimming with manta rays even after we thought everywhere was booked! Tori was really helpful, and knew how to help us based on what we wanted. No pushy sales, just friendly help!

Similar hook and gouge experience to that described by some other reviewers. Price board as displayed looks too good to be true. That's because it is. What's more, it's not clear what we needed to do to get the 'best price', as the reduced quote given if we agreed to the time share presentation didn't come close to the 'best... More

We just wanted snorkel gear at the advertised 1.50/day, but that was, of course, just a come-on. We spent way more because we also purchased discounted tickets to the night manta ray snorkel trip - and it was well worth the money! Mike was super easy to work with, no pressure.
