Does the boat for the AM snorkel dolphin watch have a cover / shade available?
Yes, the back half of the boat is fairly well shaded by the canopy.
Whats your success rate in actually seeing the dolphins and being able to snorkel with them??Whats your success rate in actually seeing the dolphins and being able to snorkel with them??
Although we had a good time and "by chance" saw some dolphins. This description doesn't fit what the description says. We did go to both bays but we did not head out to look for all those dolphins and whales which had me very confused when they said we were heading back. So maybe the description of this package needs to be updated. Although we had a good time and "by chance" saw some dolphins. This description doesn't fit what the description says.

Wonderful excursion! Loved the snorkeling and swimming with dolphins! We would definitely recommend this trip!
