Wandered into Boss Frog's to rent snorkel gear for the day. Was lured by the sign $1.50 per day. Of course, the $1.50 per day gear was out of stock but also not the best choice for gear. We ended up with the $10 gear (which is still a decent price). After being pitched to get our gear for free... More

First time to the island. Momma gave great advise on where to go and helped us make the best use of out time. She's awesome. We went back to see her each day we could and had great adventures.

My wife and I went to the big island on our honeymoon and decided to do some snorkeling. After doing some price checking and walking into Boss Frog's we couldn't refuse. The service was excellent--a big thank you to Lee especially--and the equipment worked awesomely, WAY better than the snorkel gear provided to us by a certain excursion company. Lee... More

My wife and I recently visit the Big Island in May and rented equipment here for 11 days. The guy working the front desk was very pleasant and he gave several good recommendations on where to snorkel. The prices are great and we even bought a cool Boss Frogs hat.

We recently had a great week trip to Kona and had rented gear from BF. I rented an underwater camera and had taken some very special pictures with it. When I returned the camera and got my pictures I was reassured they were all on the disc. When I got home to view them there were only 1/4 of the... More

Thank you Mama Leah. You impressed me and my wife to organize and arrange for the Luau at Royal Kona and the Manta snorkel with Splashers we had an amazing time and you were great to deal with. I appreciate the down to earth manner and Island charm.

About to take off back to mainland but I wanted to give a shout out to Lee and Leah for hooking it up at Boss Frogs in Kailua-Kona! I wish i would have gone there earlier in my trip because I ended up getting a surfboard for close to nothing combined with a discounted manta ray trip. Manta Ray trips... More

We had a great experience at Boss Frog's in Kona! Mike helped us out with great snorkel gear and had an awesome zip line recommendation. They seem to give great discounts to repeat customers and renting from them really made our trip awesome! Sometimes the place is a little understaffed with only 1 person working at a time but they...

Rented two seats of the mid-level snorkel gear here for our week in Kona. Equipment was in good shaped and worked well for us all week. Mama Leah was super helpful, friendly, and even saved us a few bucks by suggesting we rent for the week instead of the two days as it was actually cheaper.
