Jennifer at Boss Frogs in Kona was awesome. She fit our snorkel gear perfectly and then took the time to tell us about the best place to go, which was exactly what we needed for first time. Reserved online. Easy. Feels local.

We needed snorkel equipment and an underwater camera. We got all that in about 30 minutes and the ladies were exceptionally professional and patient. The equipment was great and the prices quite reasonable.

Rented the upgraded snorkels. This is a must. Staff was helpful and friendly and making small jokes. He also advised good snorkeling sites for beginners and steered us away from some deep areas that would not be safe. (We had some local recommendations). I would...More

We went here and were very happy with the equipment and service. They did try sell us all their excursions that we already had booked elsewhere, but that’s just trying to upsell.

Talked to Joy about renting a floatation device. She was very helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and a “joy” to talk to. This place is much better than the “other” rental place. Also bought some things from here. Will use them again. Mahalo Joy
