We had a blast cruising around the island in this dune buggy! The owner provided different places to check out so you don’t even have to think. The company include complimentary things for the beach if you need them.

We chose an automatic since we haven’t used manual in awhile, but if you know how to, absolutely do it! The buggy is comfortable to sit in and easy to drive. People will be checking you, which was super fun to see their reactions.

We highly recommend using this company. The owner cares a lot to ensure you have fun, which you will!

This past August my wife and I made our very first trip to Hawaii. I wanted to go all out no holds bar and try and do everything and experience everything that Hawaii had to offer and I just about did! I went deep sea fishing, flew in a helicopter, enjoyed a very nice luau, & visited a lot gorgeous beaches! But I will have to say the funnest and coolest thing that my wife and I experienced in Hawaii was renting a dune buggy from “Big Island Buggy” & spent the day driving all over the Isalnd and going from beach to beach exploring new places. Feeling the cool ocean breeze blowing thru your hair & feeling the warm glow from the sun kissing your skin. WAS AMAZING!!! We are planning on heading back soon to the big island and I am planning on renting out Buggy from “Big Island Buggy” every day that I am there.

Customer service…excellent!!!
They delivered the buggy to where I was staying at and the owners of this company where so flipping cool. They rental of this buggy so fun and easy and they were so helpful and informative of where we should g and what we should do on the Big Island. They gave us a map and drew on it were we should go and where we shouldn’t go.

To Big Island Buggy rentals:

Mahalo!

Really cool buggies! Had a blast navigating the Kona area roads. The owners were super friendly and very helpful with directions and places to check out. Highly recommend doing this instead of a big company rental, way more fun.

During your time on the Big Island, you need to take time out of the water and spend some time driving around the island with the team at BigIslandBuggy.com. The Big Island Buggy team is super helpful and has a great selection of vehicles to see the island with their Buggy Rental.

The vehicles are setup as a classic Dune Buggy manufactured by a team out of Los Angeles. You get the open air convertible feel and the classic road handling of a Dune Buggy.

The customer service and reservation process with the BigIslandBuggy.com is AMAZING! They are fast to respond via Email. The pick up and drop off makes things really easy. Just remember to be on time or communicate any changes in your schedule. The vehicles are in top notch condition and the peripherals provided with chairs, towels and a USB speaker are excellent!

You may ask yourself, “Where would I go on the Big Island? While the beaches are a good location, it is fun to just drive the roads on the island in the open air feel and do some cruising. It is a great fun car to drive. I was disappointed that I did not schedule more time to cruise the island in the car with the wind in my face and seeing the island.

A few tips to remember: The Buggy is a classic car. Therefore, backup cameras, anti-lock brakes and blind spot mirrors are not present. Take the time when you get the vehicle to take a slow cruise down the street and get the feel of the brakes and handling. Always remember to set the parking brake when you stop!

You will not be disappointed with your experience with BigIslandBuggy.com and I would do this again when on the Big Island. This is a great local business with a unique product you won’t get in all locations.

If you have read this review and are still debating, just book the reservation in advance, plan a route and enjoy the experience!

We arrived on a cruise with not much planned, and found this company with a Buggy ready to go and it was by far one of funest things we did in Hawaii, it really made a difference, as we were able to ride to the different beaches and explore and stop at local restaurants and shops at our own time. It was so much fun, we wish to go back and stay and rent the buggy again. Thank You Big Island Buggy, you really made our days special !!!

Saw all the positive reviews on trip advisor and this definitely lived up to expectations.
Aaron was helpful throughout the process. He met us at our hotel and went through all the places he recommended we visited marking them on a map for us.
We hired a buggy for 8hrs and loved every moment of it.
If you want a fun and unique way to travel then this is a must

10/10 experience, from the flexible and easy pickup and drop off to the ride it’s self! Aaron was both helpful and easy to communicate with. We were able to ride in “tang” and I couldn’t have asked for a more smooth ride. I would recommend bringing a portable speaker to make your ride all the more enjoyable!

We were on vacation for one month on the big island, so what better than to rent a sand/ street Buggy from Big Island Buggy. We had it for the day and it was Great! We asked for the yellow Buggy “Tang” and yes it caught a lot of attention to say the least. I had just sold my VW sand rail and it felt good to drive “Tang” as I was having withdrawal from selling mine.
Needles to say we had a lot of fun and took memories home to Arizona that will last forever.
Aloha, Steve & Ellie
