My husband and I had a nice week at Hobbies. Despite all of the rain, we were still able to enjoy the kayaks and snorkeling. John and Ronald were both great and very resourceful, and we had a lot of laughs with the other guests. As many other reviewers stated, bring Deep Woods Off!!

I could not have found a better place for our vacation. John and Sue felt like old friends. My husband enjoyed swimming from the dock to the reef for snorkeling. Also went on the tour in the boat with Ronald for more amazing snorkeling. Do take the Island tour with John if you have the chance.
