 A BIG congratulations to Jody Hunt who is our lucky winner for Oct - Dec. We look forward to welcoming you to the park again soon.


My first visit to The Pet Porpoise Pool was in 1980 and I found the dolphin show amazing and now years later I am fascinated at the entire concept of THE PET PORPOISE POOL What I like most is the dedication and passion from the staff at the pet porpoise pool for providing the injured marine and wildlife animals. a safe and happy place to recover and be loved by many visitors from all over the world.{what great people}. { and what clever animals}.


Thank you so much Kylie, we hope to be here for many more years to come & continue to educate future generations & share our passion. Regards DMCP team :)

I have been saying for years that I have wanted to visit Coffs Harbour since learning about Dolphin Marine Conservation Park. We finally were able to visit last Thursday and it was an even greater experience than I could have ever imagined or hoped for. From the amazing staff that made us feel so welcome, and the obvious passion and care for their animals and allowing such a hands on experience with these beautiful animals that have given us with the most wonderful memories of our visit. Coffs Harbour is now going to be a front running holiday destination for us and we will be more than happy even if this is the only attration we visit!


Thank you Jody, this is the loveliest feedback just before our very very busy season! The team loved reading it! Have a lovely Christmas from all of us here at DMCP :)

I got the opprotunity to swim with amazing jett last year. He was all over me and little did I know I was actually pregnant! One year later we are bringing our beautiful boy to come visit my good old friend jett in the next fortnight. Can't wait to reunite with all the gang. Such an amazing park and outrun sea world any day


Thank you, we look forward to welcoming you all back here again soon :)

Our 2 kids under 3 and 5 had great fun watching the dolphins, penguins, turtles and the seal. We arrived around 1.30 as we travelled all the way from Sydney and missed all the big shows but kids still looked so excited just watching the animals play free. Staff were very lovely and caring and they seemed to have real love and passion towards what they do which was great to see. We hope to return again in future.


Thank you for your lovely feedback, we hope to see you again

I would like to thank the staff at the park. My son swam with the dolphins today and had the most wonderful experience. Something he will never forget made his dreams come true.


Thank you Leah that is so great to hear :) 

Emma Baker 05-Nov-2019

My son and I came to visit the park in January, it was my sons second visit to the park we came in 2012 when he was 1, the smile on my son’s face during the show and seeing all the animals was well worth the 5 hour drive to get there, while sitting in the grandstand watching the show I heard about the in the water hugs with the seal so I thought to myself why not and I paid for my 8 years old son to do it and he honestly thought it was the best thing ever, the smile never left his face even with Adelaide being a bit naughty with the dolphin in the pool and swapping over to Ellie he wasn’t bothered as long as he was in the water with the seal, as soon as he was out he went straight to the gift shop and purchased a seal and now that sits proudly with his photo with Ellie on his bedside table, the staff were so welcoming and encouraged him not to be afraid of the seal, answered all his question and we had the time of our life and Rhylee is so excited to come back and swim with seals and the dolphins again.


Thank you Emma, sounds like a really great day :)

My wife and I are on a two week working holiday in Coffs Harbour and we are trying to see some of Coffs while we are here. Yesterday we walked from our accommodation to the Jetty Markets and were a little disappointed. Walking back to our resort, we passed the dolphins conservation park. My wife said "Would you like to go and have a look?" I didn't immediately know what the facility was. I was prepared to pay the entry even if we just saw a couple of story boards about the conservation works. OMG what a surprise. We saw penguins, turtles, stingrays, sharks, sea lions, but wait - the DOLPHINS. All interaction is at their choice. You are allowed to stand near their pool, with hands gently flat on the water. If they want to come, they will. They are like puppies. They love their trainers SO much. They get visibly excited when another trainer arrives at the pool. When the trainer was doing a demonstration of how they get the seals to let them do an ultrasound, the dolphins were "going off" like mischievous puppies trying to get her attention. The "tricks" they all do are naturally done in the wild or needed for the conservation center to care for them. If they decide to come near you, you can pat them and the whole experience is amazing. My wife threw a ball back and forward with Jett for about three minutes- I took video of it and no one can believe it. You HAVE to visit. We are going to go every time we visit Coffs Harbour and I'm seriously contemplating giving up my career in IT and studying marine biology. The best thing I've done ever.


WOW Rob, this is such a lovely testimonial for all of us here at DMCP, thank you so much for your amazing feedback & you are welcome back to see us & Jet anytime! 

Shana Ghadially 23-Oct-2019

Pet porpoise pool holds a special memory for our family. Our 6 year old daughter was thrilled as she had the experience of brushing the dolphin's teeth. And our four month old couldn't have dreamt in his wildest dreams that he was being kissed by a seal! we don't need the pics to remind us of those memories ... they are etched in our minds. It was a brilliant holiday we had at Coffs Harbour , one we will always treasure. Look forward to visiting the park once again.


Thank you Shana, the best kind of memories :) 

Lisa Park 16-Oct-2019

We absolutely loved visiting the Dolphin Marine Conservation Park on our recent holiday in Coffs Harbour. The park is such a relaxed environment to learn lots about the animals and meet them up close and personal. We particularly enjoyed the Dolphin experiences and we will be back to do this again soon. Thank you to all the friendly staff for answering our many questions and making us feel very welcome!


Thank you Lisa, we look forward to seeing you again next time :) 

Tracey Wall 16-Oct-2019

Another thoroughly enjoyable time at the park today. We visit every 2 years on our holidays at Coffs. We have Dolphin pictures of the kids from each visit and it is always on the top of our list of "to do's". The staff are so great with all the animals and I recommend you guys to everyone. Thanks for all you do, for raising awareness and giving us and our children the opportunity to have up close interactions with all these lovely creatures. The Wall family (Brisbane)


Hi Tracey, thank you for continuing to support our park, we look forward to welcomning you back next trip! 

Jo 14-Oct-2019

My most recent adventure to Dolphin Marine Magic was with my 6 year old son and he was lucky enough to participate in a dolphin encounter. He was unable to swim at the time but the staff were great and able to assist him to get up close with a dolphin. He really loved the experience, he has ASD and felt extremely comfortable with the animal more so than with anything else in the pool! So he had a real connection with the dolphin and was sure of the dolphins connection with him. Because of the dolphin he was at ease in the pool where he would normally feel very uneasy. This made my day and his a very magical experience. Thankyou Dolphin Marine Magic


Thank you Jo, this is such lovely feedback 

Joy Cook 03-Oct-2019

This was my last visit to The pet Porpoise pool 35 years ago I was 7. we used to go every year when I was little and my grandmother getting kissed by a seal was the highlight of the day. I loved feeding the fairy penguins and my dream is to one day swim with the dolphins. I would love to win passes to marine magic to experience it again with my family. What great memories Katherine, we hope to w..


My mum and I just spend the whole weekend at Pet Porpoise Pool, we travel from Tweed to Coffs just to see Buck and Zip, we love them and can't get enough. Already driven down 3 times this year, and every time it's amazing. And we loved seeing all 5 dolphins in the pool, Bella's a sneaky little thing! We got drenched by her plenty of times hahaha. Great to hear you enjoyed yourselves - Paige S..

I took my two youngest grandchildren there in July 2018, they both loved it and still talk about it to this day, so we are planning to return with my oldest grandchild as well. They don't like the drive from Sydney, but they do love it there so it makes it worth the trip. Great place, educational and fun. Thank you Sharon, we look forward to seeing you again..

My husband, daughter and my two grandchildren are driving up from Forster on the 26/06/20 to spend the weekend in Coffs Harbour for a getaway weekend..

My family and I went to The dolphin marine conservation last September and it was the best experience of our lives! When we watched the dolphin show, there were so many smiles, laughs and really enjoyable moments. After the show was the best part, We got to put our hands in the water and see if the dolphins came to us! When they did, it was so magical, I felt at peace and decided I wanted to p..

You could not make my smile disappear, I was able to touch and interact with the dolphins and that was just normal entry! I will be back for an experience with these beautiful creatures. I had happy tears for mo..
