A family of four can rent a boat for the day, go whale watching, snorkeling and view dolphins for far less than you could do each of those things individually. Plus do it all at your own pace. Eric and his son Blake couldn't be...More

Had an excellent day on the water. Eric and family great to deal with. Boat ran fine, and was more than adequate for site seeing and cruising. GPS worked excellent. We are experienced boaters, not on the open ocean, but Eric ensured that the weather...More

Eric and Blake gave us great instructions on how to navigate the ocean! We had so much fun finding the buoys and diving down to tie the boat up. Then being able to snorkel without 75 other people bumping in to us. Definitely worth the...More

Where else can you get a boat for the ocean? It's a great deal if you know what you want to do. Snorkeling, fishing, and finding hidden private beaches was our priority! Make sure that you know how to operate a boat, and don't be...More

We had a great time renting a boat with Kona Boat Rentals. They provide snorkeling gear and show you where you can go snorkeling. They also provide deep sea fishing equipment if you want it.

I, too, have bad knees and I was easily helped in and out of the boat. I can't recommend this company enough!

Triumph 21.5 ours had a Honda 150 although I think many are 115hp. Very nice boat. We booked a month in advance although I am not sure that much notice is needed. Have fun.
