Lee was very friendly and helpful, lots of local knowledge.

We hired fins and an underwater camera for snorkelling. Lee was very helpful and gave us advice and directions to some great spots. Gear was clean and comfortable.

We rented twice from here, excellent equipment, they advertise $1.50 but that is for the gear that is really old. We rented the high end for 9$ each both times, we were served by tori and another lady I think her name was Susan (lovely lady short white hair) they both had lots of info

I've rented from Boss Frog's on Maui, Kauai, and now the big island. Lee was helpful and got us set up with a comfortable set of snorkeling equipment. Can't really ask for more.

The staff was awesome, the snorkels were cheap (week rental was worth it!), the tour they set us up with for the manta ray snorkel was phenomenal (Hang Loose), and they also had great deals on flip flops.

Got up early yesterday to head down and rent snorkel gear. We walked quite a ways to boss frogs; and when we got there we were quoted $64 I believe for two persons snorkeling gear for one week.
