Small facility but nice for kids. Watch out when paying to have your pictures taken with a dolphin because you have to pay again if it turns out that the photo isn't any good. This happend to me twice already. Bad customer service!

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.

We booked separately from the cruise line. You can do it either way. We saved some money by booking separately but we had to find our own transportation to the academy.

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.
