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.

Rented snorkel fins for a week. Good fins and cheap, like $2 per day. However, all three times we were at this shop it took a very l-o-n-g time to get any help. Boss Frog's seems staffed/trained to handle only 1 or 2 transactions at a time. We waited 40 minutes to simply grab a set of medium fins and... More

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 family and I went on vacation to Kona to celebrate my parents 30th anniversary. One of the many adventures we embarked on was snorkeling in the beautiful blue waters in the little lagoon outside of our hotel. My husband, my older sister, her fiancé, my dad and myself went to boss frogs, to rent some gear. Not only do... More
