It will take some time to go off the ship. Would recommend to take the 2 pm time depending on the time to go back on the ship. It is not far away. Would say if there is no traffic, it will take 15 minutes with a taxi.

Hi!, It is near to the port, around 10-15 minutes by taxi or 30 minutes walking, it is easy to go there, every local can show you the way. There is different kind of activities to do with dolphins in a small space.
