Audray,

Do you have any copies of the weekly events?? We check-in a little more than a month away...

For everyone else, any recommendations on where to rent a waverunner from?? We can't do a tour type rental b/c we have more kids than we can have passengers for 2 drivers!! :P

Can't wait!
Mark

Unfortunately, we didn't bring anything back with us. I know that if you call the resort, they will e-mail you a copy.

We just returned from our first visit to HHI and had a wonderful time! So much fun that I am trying to figure out how to find the points for another trip next year
We were in a 2BR overlooking the pool. The location was wonderful, it was nice to watch my big kids swim from the porch while the baby napped in the room. It was a little loud later in the evening but the convenience factor far outweighed the extra noise.
The weather was great, the resort was beautiful. We all can't wait to return. We didn't rent anything, but it would have been very very easy. The CMs hand out great info packets at check in with rental companies, boat charters, restaurants, tours, ect. The chalkboards at the resort have tons of info on activities too. We wished our kids were all 5 and up so we could have signed them up for Kid's night out, it looked like a lot of fun!

udflyer, we plan on doing a dolphin excursion but not sure who to use though. i would also like to know about the deep sea fishing excursions as well. My oldest would love to try this. I have heard that the dolphin tour that you can set up through the resort is a good one but i remember a couple of years ago some one had posted some good info too.

DH and I did the dolphin excursion through the resort with the discount at the time. We thought it was excellent, we did see dolphins and learned a lot about the history in the area.

Has everyone read Doc's May activity thread. It gives an excellent overview of what's available in the area!

I went thru the resort also, and that's what I'd recommend doing. Just go to the recreation counter. Wave runners-in all honesty, it wouldn't surprise me if these were banned on the waters off HHI, much too "tacky" (loud) for the town fathers possibly. HHI has VERY strict beach rules. Down here at South Padre Island, we see wave runners all the time and they do look like so much fun!

DH and I also did the dolphin excursion through the resort in March. I think the DVC discount is on Mondays and Wednesdays, and I believe it was 10%. The guide had grown up in the area and knew a lot about the birds, trees, history, etc., as well as dolphins. He was very professional and also a lot of fun. We saw a lot of dolphins, and some jumped up within a few feet of our boat. You sign up at the DVC Recreation desk, meet there at the appropriate time, and the guide walks you to his boat at the harbor in the front of the resort. He doesn't take you into the open ocean, and the ride is smooth and easy. We've done dolphin excursions at other coastal areas, and we enjoyed this one the most since we saw so many dolphin.

I was going to ask you to switch our dates but I see we haven't been listed yet. So, please add our new dates Dec 16 - 22!!

My sister is due Thanksgiving Day so our annual trip to HH will have to be postponed a few weeks.

Thanks!

Kristen
