Rented snorkels and boogie board for green sand beach trip. Didn't ask about that beach. Turns out to be not really snorkable. When I turned them back in, she seemed genuinely upset that I didn't get that info when I rented, but I didn't ask. (And no she didn't refund my money- I didn't ask for that either... we did...

They offer a range of rental snorkels from the very cheap (1.50 to 9.00). We went with the 'nicer' ones and they were perfect. You rent for a 24 hour period. Check-out and turn-in was easy.

We rented our snorkel gear here and got great results. Mike and Joy were a great help. Since the day was mostly cloudy and the water a tad cooler, we rented wet suits for our first time. What a difference! We stayed warm and the extra buoyancy from the suits made our snorkeling adventure very pleasant.

Talk about one-stop shopping!! We went into Boss Frog's for their excellent snorkel equipment deal: 2-for-1 for week-long rentals. Then Tori helped us find the SFP50 shirts and reef-safe sunscreen we wanted. Best of all was the great deals she got us on booking three adventures: 2 snorkel trips and a helicopter ride. All three excursions were outstanding and tons... More

Boss makes it quick and easy to pick up rental snorkeling gear and the prices are very fair. Tori got us in and out quickly and also was very helpful in guiding us to Two Step beach which has some of the best snorkeling on the islands.

We rented snorkel gear, beach chairs, and boogie boards here and couldn't be happier. Mike Fields was friendly and knowledgeable and made sure the snorkel mask and fins were properly fitted. Highly recommended, and would definitely return here the next time I'm in Kailua-Kona.
