Unique Buggy Rental

You select the destination with Big Island Buggy! You drive about the island in your own open-air VW Manx inspired buggy. We have buggies with two or four seats. Visit historical places, drive to stunning beaches, and explore coffee fields; YOU choose where and how long you want to stay. We hire buggies for 4 hours, full days, or up to 8 hours. Contact us for 24-hour or multi-day rentals. Our buggies come with a soft top that you can easily remove for a complete 360-degree view, which is AMAZING! We provide free delivery and pick-up from KOA airport to the Captain Cook region. We charge a fee (delivery and pick-up included) from any site north of the KOA airport to the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel (Please pick the N.of airport price option). The buggies can go wherever on the island that a rented car can go. They go at fast speeds. The sole constraint is that they cannot go off road (save in dirt parking lots) and are not four wheel drive. If you have any queries, please contact ahead of time.
