My daughter loves the Pet Porpoise Pool so much she had her birthday party there. She loves how we can just wander around and look at the fish, penguins and the turtles after the show.

Thanks Emma - we love having birthdays here too. - Paige Sinclair CEO

Julie Karklis 26-Feb-2012

We first visited the Pet Porpoise Pool in 2005 when our girls were 11 and 5. Our 11 year old became enthralled with the dolphins and started her life long love of these majestic animals. The dolphin in the pool became attracted to her and subsequently brought the ball over to her to play catch and throw with. This continued for well over 30 minutes. We literally had to drag her away! She has had 'other' dolphin adventures but still considers the Pet Porpoise Pool to be the best! She turns 18 soon and is talking about experiencing the dolphin magic again!

Great story Julie - we hope you can visit very soon - Paige Sinclair CEO

On the coldest day EVER in Coffs Harbour we swam with the beautiful Bella. It was a dream come true. I will be back later this year to do it again for my 40th!!!

Good for you - you are truly a brave person - Paige Sinclair CEO

When my family and I visited the Pet Porpoise Pool over the xmas holidays we discovered that it was an awesome place to interact with some of the creatures of the ocean. The whole family enjoyed the experience and my 3yr old son keeps asking when we are going to visit the 'dolphin house' again.

Come again soon - we are working on some exciting changes - Paige Sinclair CEO

Lorraine V 26-Feb-2012

we have no yet had the privilege of enjoying a visit to Pet Porpoise Pool. We are coming to visit in June. The image i have attached is one of us swimming with wild Hector dolphins in Akaroa New Zealand. My ultimate dolphin experience is something i am looking forward to and have been for a long time. I can not wait :)

We will see you in June Lorraine - Paige Sinclair CEO

Lucie C 26-Feb-2012

My family has been coming to Pet Porpoise Pool for many years. It is an amazing experience for the whole family. We all love getting a kiss from a dolphin and a seal. Last time we went was in December and my daughter got to feed the little penguins and a seal. I am super excited planning a Dolphin experience for my 40th this year. I can't wait.

The water is great this time of year Lucie (end of Summer) - Paige Sinclair CEO

Matthew Wilson 26-Feb-2012

We have taken our family to the Pet Porpoise Pool twice and have enjoyed it both times. The kids love how you can touch the dolphins, kiss and feed the seals. Being so close to the animals is fantastic! We have recommended this to others who have also been to enjoy the experience. We look forward to coming back!

Thanks Matthew for your testimonial - Paige Sinclair CEO

Melani C 26-Feb-2012

As a family of 3 we visited the park in 2001, then when the family grew we visited again in 2010. We loved it just as much the second time round, even though the weather wasn't kind in the morning we stuck it out and my youngest was fortunate enough to brush the dolphin's teeth. The kids loved everything the park had to offer and even I got a kiss off the seal. The weather cleared midday and we stayed for the afternoon show which was just as much fun as the first. Thankyou for a wonderful time and we are hoping for a return visit real soon.

We hope when you come back we have beautiful weather - Paige Sinclair CEO

Nicolle P 26-Feb-2012

My first encounter with a dolphin was at the Pet Porpoise Pool years ago. I am obsessed with cetaceans and other marine life, and have plastered my bedroom wall with photos of Bucky and the others, as well as several of the kisses ♥ I don't get to go often, but it is probably my favourite place to go. An incredible interactive experience you can't get anywhere else. 

Thanks Nicolle - we are big fans of all the dolphins at the park too!  Paige Sinclair CEO

Peta Watters 26-Feb-2012

My little girl sees this pic in her photo album and asks about mummys dolphin kiss and gets very disappointed to learn that she is asleep in the pic and wants me to take her back to get her own dolphin kiss while she is awake!! She is 5 now. I love PPP because it was small and intimate and there was so many animal encounters. You get up close and personal not waaaayyyy up the back of a huge arena. Its worth every cent, the children get such a buzz. My daughter has heard u can have birthday parties here and is planning one of her own! Pity its a couple of hours away! I would have an annual pass otherwise!! Thanx PPP for a wonderful experience.

Great story Peta - we hope you can visit soon - Paige Sinclair CEO

Rebekah B 26-Feb-2012

I love going to the Pet Porpoise Pool and seeing all of the animals (especially the dolphins) they provide an awesome opportunity for me to use my photography skills and get some amazing photos. I love the Pet Porpoise pool :)

Great photo Rebekah - Paige Sinclair CEO

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 :)..

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...
