Back in 2009, when my son was 15 months old his grandparents came along to share their grandsons first pet porpoise pool experience, he loved it, they loved it again and he even watched his mum(me) feed the dolphins in the show!!!! What a great memorable day.His favourite part was feeding the penguins with Nan.

It was back in 2004 I first fell in love with the porpoise pool, and its become a must see attraction for all of my friends and family. The shows are exhilarating and the up close and personal feel and vibe to the whole park is wonderfully intimate and special! Highly recommend to all for a brilliant family fun day!

Thanks for the fantastic write up - Paige Sinclair CEO

Anthony Brown 26-Feb-2012

Taking my daughter almost 2 years ago now when she had just turned 2 was a precious time for her seeing some of the many marine animals for the very first time. We all enjoyed ourselves on our visit and loved the dolphin shows. From the minute we walked into the gates we felt touched by the many staff that are friendly including the trainers who do a fantastic job, this shows from the happiness the marine creatures show both on their face and with sounds. An amazing journey that took up the great part of the day, I would love to bring my daughter back now shes 4 for a whole new experience again. Just Magic!

Thanks Anthony - we would love to welcome you and your family back - very soon we hope Paige Sinclair CEO

Carly Dawson 26-Feb-2012

Had a great time at Pet Porpoise Pool! I got to swim with Calamity (if I remember correctly) while volunteering there in the June/July holidays last year. Even though there was a lot of dirty work to be done (so many buckets had to be cleaned!) it was all worth it when I got to swim with Calamity and play catch with all the other beautiful dolphins. I loved getting to see the smiles on everyone's faces while they fed the little penguins, reef tank animals and receiving a kiss from the cheeky seals and dolphins :). Would love to go back there some time soon!

Hi Carly - thanks for your help last winter - Paige Sinclair CEO

casie metz 26-Feb-2012

Thanks for the recommendation Casie - Paige Sinclair CEO

Chris Roberts 26-Feb-2012

Dolphin Marine Magic is the best value for money to see the dolphins up close and personal forget all those theme parks...every one gets to touch the dolphins here......Whilst there we paid for our son to swim the dolphins still today we cannot wipe the smile off his face....was well worth the money paid and not expensive at all.....Thanks Guys we will be back

Thanks for the great comment - Paige Sinclair CEO

Debbie Kay 26-Feb-2012

Even though we are from the Gold Coast we try to visit the Pet Porpoise Pool as often as we can & would highly recommend it to anyone!! I am a single parent & find times tough with affording things but I def think this place is worth every penny on admission. It is a fantastic place for young & old, i think everyone that visits will have a remarkable time. We visited last in June last year for my lil man's 2nd bday as well as my 4yr old son, myself & Nanna & we all had a fantastic time. The kids got to have a dolphin & seal kiss, feed a seal, see the fantastic shows, feed the fish, feed the cute lil penguins, play ball with a dolphin, pat a dolphin, & my 4yr old was even chosen to be a dolphin dentist in the show, which i would have to say was the highlight of our trip. The pet porpoise pool is the most hands on interactive place I've been to & I would def recommend it as one of the best places I have taken my kids too, so many experiences & memories that will last a life time. We are planning on visiting again thru the school holidays & def plan to continue coming as often as we can :) 

Thanks Debbie for the fantastic testimonial we appreciate it - Paige Sinclair CEO 

Dionne Arthur 26-Feb-2012

What a wonderful day we had! My niece & Nephew came to visit from Toowoomba and had many wonderful encounters, they especially loved the seal & dolphin kisses and thought the little penguins were hilarious. They can't wait to come and visit again!

Thanks Dionne - we would like you to visit again - Paige Sinclair CEO

Emma C 26-Feb-2012

Katherine Thompson

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..

My family with two teenage children travelled from Port Macquarie to visit on 15th July because my daughters school camp to Coffs Harbour was cancelled and the one thing she wanted to see the most was the Dolphin Marine Conservation Park. We arrived late so didn’t see the dolphin show but absolutely loved seeing the seals, dolphins, penguins and other marine life with their daily goings on. We..


I was a junior marine ranger for the whole day and it was such an incredible experience, it is definitely worth coming and having a look at, and even if you are not a junior marine ranger it is still mind blowingly awesome, one of my favorite moments there was being able to see the dolphin show and also being able to pat the dolphins belly, my favorite dolphin is Calamity because she is really..


We visited last year and absolutely loved it! We had been to the Gold Coast and stopped over on the way home to Sydney. My 3 teenagers all agreed it was the best place we visited! We didn’t have time to swim with the dolphins but we are planning on returning this October and will allow more time. Thank you for a great experience Thank you Melissa, we hope to see you in October :)..

Rosalind Cocker

Hi my entry is not about having been there it is about wanting to see photos of my two beautiful grandchildren having fun there. We live in the U.K. our two gorgeous grandchildren EVELYN 7 and OLIVER 5 left our shores to a new life in Australia 5 years ago. It’s tough sending gifts as postal charges are so high. I saw this Park whilst looking for possible gifts I could book online for them. I ..

Kristy Atkins

This spectacular place is my absolute happy place and has been since the age of approx 10yrs of age . I moved to Coffs Harbour when I was 7. I met a dolphin for the first time and swam with them for the first time at the age of 10 and since then my passion has grown so much more . I am now 28 yrs old and living in Qld , my last memorable time was volunteering here at the park for 3+ months eve..

Jeremy Edwards

Hi, I would like to thank all the staff, that made my families day at the park on mothers day. It started with we were running late, after having to wait for a table at the cafe. I took my 2 year old to get a dolphin kiss, my wife had to go finish feeding our 2 month old. The staff at the kisses waited longer for my wife, this was much appreciated. after spending a couple of hours here we had ..

Tammy Hawkins

By far the best family friendly park for children and adults to learn and interact with marine life. The staff are friendly and helpful, willing to answer any questions. There is something for everyone at any age. Love this park. Hi Tammy, thank you for your feedback, we hope to see you again...
