If you want to do the dolphin encounter, you'll need to book in advance. They book up quickly, sometimes months in advance. Any tour you know you want to do, should be booked in advanced.

A GREAT all-day excursion that includes time on a boat and some snorkeling that would be awesome for a 12 year old boy is Powerboat Adventures. Although the snorkeling is more limited, there are other highlights to the trip including watching shark wrestling and feeding stingrays. The price of $199 pp might seem a little steep but it includes an all you can eat buffet lunch and an open bar of alcoholic beverages. If you read the reviews for this excursion on tripadvisor, you will see that everyone agrees the cost is well justified. Check out their website for trip details. If you book online from home, you can save 10%.

I agree Powerboat adventure is a great excursion, but it's not a great snorkeling tour.

Stuart Cove has a great tour (wreck, reef and sharks) www.stuartcove.com

Blue hole water sports does as well www.blueholewatersports.com

If you're looking for a sailing/snorkeling adventure.. seahorsesailingadventures.com would be a good choice.
