  • Ed and Sarah Peel, scuba diving, model ship
  • Jake and Tracy Bremmer, golfing, shirts
  • Mike and Cindy Horner, hiking, postcards

Explanation: Bob and Judy (1) Gallop (2) went sight seeing (2) and bought the carved wooden dolphin (5). Jake Bremmer (6) went golfing (2) and bought shirts (6). Peter went surfing (2). Ed didn't go hiking (4) so by elimination Ed went scuba diving and Mike went hiking. Mike bought postcards (6).

Mike's last name is not Elmwood (6) so by elimination Mike's last name is Horner and Peter's is Elmwood.
