Great deals on snorkel equipment. Also rent underwater cameras, with free battery replacement and unlimited photo/video burned on DVD. Mike was great. Much less pressure to buy trips/deals/upgrades than other places like this.

My husband, my older sister, her fiancé, my dad and myself went to boss frogs, to rent some gear. Not only do... More

Very affordable snorkeling rental equipment and the customer service was great. Tori was very sweet and extremely helpful! No late fees either and the gear worked great. We will definitely be back! 😀

We went in to Boss Frogs late in the afternoon to rent masks and fins for snorkeling. Tori was so helpful, quick and nice!! Whenever we get back to Kona we will stop here to rent gear or take a tour.

While in Kona we were looking for some gear to do some snorkeling. While walking down Alii Drive we found Boss Frogs. The young woman there was very helpful. She didn't try to load us up on gear and after talking to her for a bit about what we were going to do (very basic snorkeling with the kids), she... More
