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

My friend was having a problem with her snorkel mouthpiece and went in here to see if she could remedy the situation.

Mike made sure the snorkel gear fit correctly and was friendly and courteous. This was my first experience with snorkeling and it was fantastic! Prices were very reasonable too.

The moment I stepped in the store a young man named lee was right there to help me. He went well out his way to make sure I had gotten everything I needed. I appreciate this establishment and the array of products and services they supply. Really left a great impression, I'll gladly be back.

Super service and advice given by Mr.Lee! It was our first time purchasing snorkel gear and we had no idea how to go about finding the right style. Mr.Lee was so helpful and hospitable as he took out time to make sure we were comfortable wearing the gear, had the right size and style and were knowledgeable in knowing how... More

Over the last 3 days we have been on the Big Island, Boss Frogs has helped us out greatly. We were given great snorkeling gear and got excellent advice on what beaches to go to. Lee helped us out everyday, and was very friendly. His knowledge of the beaches aided us in a lot of decisions. I would definitely recommend... More

On our 5th day on Big Island, we stopped in at Boss Frog's to check out the snorkel tours. Joy was so pleasant and helpful! She booked us a snorkel tour with Splashers for free when we agreed to do the timeshare presentation. We can't wait to do our snorkel tour at Captain Cook. Thanks for all your help and... More

On our last day of a two week tour of Maui and the Big Island, we decided we had to go snorkeling before we left. Luckily, Boss Frogs was easy to find, quick with the gear (which would have been way cheap, had we not splurged for the sweet underwater camera), and gave us a good recommendation on where to...
