We rented some snorkeling equipment and it was fast, easy and fun! They are very friendly and helpful here. Their shirts are also incredibly soft and well made.

Great experience. We used them for a scuba tour out at the Captain Cook Memorial in the bay. I was worried about the extra cost using them vs just doing ourselves. If you have the spare money I found their help invaluable in having a great time. I was well worth the cost. They made the whole trip worry free (except finding the place, a map from the shop to the bay would have helped me). The guide really knew the area and the Hawaiian Islands. We were very lucky that the bay was filled with spinner dolphins during our whole trip. The scuba area was wonderful. The kayaks were good and they knew all the best places to land and see the area. Well worth the extra money for the help and knowledge of the area. We sunburn easily so it is always hard for us to do outside swimming stuff, but the staff was very helpful in recommend the right shirt to help with blocking the sun. It even was on the clearance rack.

Kai is the best snorkeling guide you could ask for. Incredibly friendly, knowledgable and welcoming. One of the highlights of our trip. If you can request a guide, ask for Kai — you won't be disappointed.

Renting a Kayak in Hawaii sounds like a nice idea but it’s not as nice as it sounds when you rent with Kona Boys. We reserved a kayak weeks in advance for our honeymoon in Hawaii and were really excited to go exploring. Unfortunately, the weather turned for the worse and it didn’t seem like a good idea to go kayaking that day. We called and tried to cancel our reservation but were unable to without paying a steep cancellation fee. On top of that, they were uncourteous and unsympathetic to our situation making the whole transaction an awful experience. We ended up having to pay the harsh cancellation fee and took our business elsewhere. A few days later when the weather got better, we rented a kayak from locals selling kayaks to tourists on the beach and had a much better experience. On top of that, we found that Kona Boys prices were ridiculously high compared to the rest of Hawaii. All in all, Kona Boys has poor customer service and extremely high prices. I would not recommend Kona Boys and suffer the same experience we did by doing business with them.

We rented two good quality snorkel equipment from Melissa. She was friendly and helped us get good quality snorkel equipment that fit (!). She knows different products well. She even suggested backup options for snorkeling if we finished early at our first site. Then we got in the car and heard the high surf warning on the radio. When we got to our preferred location the beach was closed and the 1 swimmer that jumped the rope was clearly struggling to swim in the milky bay. Even though Kona Boy's policy is not to refund rentals, when we stopped back by the shop they tried to help us find out if the high surf would last our whole stay. She checked alternatives and when it was clear nothing was going to work she made things right (no refund, per policy, but suffice it to say we left satisfied). I'll come back for this sort of customer service every time and refer my friends. Mahalo Kona Boys!

Great team who are friendly and professional. Well worth it. This is truly a great experience. Gear was top notch. Included kayaking and snorkeling. This wad not a party boat. Not a pontoon. Not a booze cruise. It was great! Paddle your kayak across a breathtaking bay. Take a guided tour with an expert. Snorkel in an amazing place. Grab lunch in the shadow of the captain Cook memorial. Paddle back. It was great! I would go back with a family. I would go back with friends. And yes...we saw multiple pods of dolphins. Did I mention.that the experience was great?
