Perfect activity on the Big Island. Wonderful team! To rent your own boat and to go out on the Pacific just on your own is an adventure that you never forget.

Excellent company to deal with in renting your own private boat! Great customer service. They will lead you through everything you need to know to rent a nice, private boat. We always use this company to do our own whale watching!

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.
