Thanks for the review Bailey, I'm sorry we didn't knock your socks off, so please come back and give it another shot!! I think part of the confusion on the snorkeling and dolphin is that you requested a shared boat, or what we call "Fishing...More

Thank you for the nice shout-out! We're so glad you enjoyed your trip with Dover. He's a hoot, isn't he. We were disappointed it wouldn't work out with our boats, but knew Pino's cousin would be a close second. Next time... janet
