To run boats that are very well equipped in a beautiful settting. Good fishing. Plenty of scenery that you can only see from the water. Dolphins galore. Always a great time and each trip is different.

The service was awesome here. From instructions and advice on where to go and what to do. Weather its fishing or just cruising around, to snorkeling spots. I will definitely rent again from them..A+++.

If you have a background in piloting boats one great way to go down to Captain Cook to snorkel is to rent a boat for the day from Kona boat rentals. We also rented fishing gear and told our way down and back for Ono. This family-run business provides great service and recommendations. They provide the fishing gear and you can buy and rent other equipment if needed. She's going to fix like we did trolling speed is about 2 hours down to Captain Cook so our half-day rental was not enough to go down there snorkel and come back so we ended up extending our time to a full day. If you want to cruise at a high speed down to Captain Cook you could probably get by with a half day rental. Did you go to Captain Cook and idle away from the snorkeling area . This work out fine one couple and snorkeling while the other couple took the boat father back into the bay where PODS of dolphins were swimming around. We also saw flying fish on our way there and back. We didn't catch any fish but we had one strike. A great alternative to tour boats or kayaking to Captain Cook. I'm only giving it 4 stars because we had some problems with the depth finder, otherwise all the equipment and the boat was in great shape.
