My daughter Charlotte (Aged 8) went and visited the Pet Porpoise Pool last year as a School excursion. She said that her favourite part was the dolphins walking on their fins, whilst the seals were crazy and very funny. She is so excited and is constantly talking about how she wants to take her brother and us (Mum and Dad) to go and see all the fun that she had. She even teases her brother telling him that she is going to get one of the seals to give him a big sloppy kiss!

Hi Kelly - thanks for your story - it is very cute!  Paige Sinclair CEO

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.

HI Kylie - it's time to come back - Paige Sinclair CEO

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

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

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..

Best birthday ever! I spent two days at Coffs Harbour on January 6 and January 7. I travelled down on the 5th and left on the 8th, my sole reason for traveling 7 hours by train each way being to spend my birthday at your park which is on January 6. I loved it so much and everyone was so friendly that I have already booked my next holiday for 2021 so I can see you all again. My first day I book..

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..

I have not come down from the high of having one of my best days ever! As a 37 year old, I have never experienced being close up with a beautiful dolphin and today my dreams came true. 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..

My daughter (4) and I would like to thank everyone at the Dolphin Conservation Park for the amazing work you do and the memorable experience you give to the public. All the animals are well taken care of, loved and respected. We had a shallow Dolphin private experience in the water with the gorgeous "Jett" and trainer Alice. I can't tell you how much we loved this incredible experience. It wil..

Jessica Higgins

My 3 kids, my mum and I had the pleasure of swimming with Zippy today, the experience was truly amazing. Seeing and touching a real dolphin was a dream come true. When I booked the experience I expected a long safety talk followed by a quick photo in the pool. What occured was the complete opposite. We played in the water with Zippy, each got to hug him individually. Thank you Jessi..
