We visited for our first time a few months ago. We had such a great time there. Was amazed at how much we got to learn and explore. The seal and dolphin kisses were amazing and lunch was fantastic!!!!! Would certainly recommend a thousand times over. Can't wait to go again.

We would love to have you back - thanks Roslyn.  Paige Sinclair CEO

6yrs ago my partner and i went for our 6mth anniversary for a stay in Coffs and went to the PPP. It was an incredible experience. 6yrs later we have 2 wonderful kids and have been planning for ages to that them for their 1st experience of the PPP. The looks on their little faces when they see the animals will be priceless. Not forgetting the sloopy dolphin and seal kisses, the very best part of all. The PPP is just one of many memorable experiences we want to have with our kids. Thanks PPP for our incredible experience which has wanted us to take our kids to experience.

Great story we will look forward to meeting your family really soon - Paige Sinclair CEO

My first visit to the PPP was only a few years ago, but now try to make it an annual event with the kids! Our most memorable visit was for my youngest sons' first birthday (June 2008) when we took along 12 of our closest friends and family for the show and the gorgeous, sloppy kisses, of course! An awesome day was had by all, especially by the birthday boy, even though he got a little scared of that huge dolphin coming towards him for a smooch!!!

Now that your son is a bit older hopefully he won't be so intimidated - Paige Sinclair CEO

We had a magical time at dolphin marine magic when we took our 9 month old daughter there a few months ago. At first we were worried the experience would be a little scary and overwhelming for her but she had an absolute blast! She was clapping and pointing and was especially captivated by the aquarium and we had to take her back to see the fish several times. We loved this cute moment she seemed to have with a fish and can't wait to take her back again soon!

Your Photo is fantastic - thanks for sharing it with us.  Paige Sinclair CEO

I've been to Pet Porpoise Pool as a young child. Now living in Coffs Harbour i have taken my children to share the experience. This photo is of my son Rhys on his birthday about 3yrs ago. He thought it was fun to brush the dolphins teeth. We all have had great times at the Pet Porpoise Pool with the animals and staff its a pleasure to watch them work and play.

Hi Terrie - thanks for your comments - Paige Sinclair CEO

toni 26-Feb-2012

One of the main reasons why I will never move out of Coffs Harbour .. How lucky are our children having the opportunity to make some great sea friends in this fun environment..I still remember those sloppy seal kisses with a smile.. <3

We love the fishy Kisses too, and the whiskers tickle!  Paige Sinclair CEO

Tracey W 26-Feb-2012

I have been living in Sandy Beach for 15 years currently, and everytime someone visits us, we allways take them to the Pet Porpoise Pool, Its a great family day out and we allways have lots of fun.

Thanks for your support - Paige Sinclair CEO

Vicke Muddle 26-Feb-2012

I have always thought Dolphins were a beautiful animal,but my visit to the Pet Porpoise Pool made me fall in love with them. Back in 2005 when i got married our honeymoon was to Coff Harbour (as with 3 kiddies it was hard to go to far from home) I loved my experience of patting and playing ball with one of the Dolphins and also getting a very fishy kiss from a seal. I also have a dolphin tattooed on my shoulder now because of my fantastic experience. Now my kids are older i would love to take them back for another experience and this time maybe even a swim with a dolphin...

We'd love to have you back - Paige Sinclair CEO

Vicki Healey 26-Feb-2012

We have very fond memories of the PPP, it was so wonderful for the girls and us to be able to touch the beautiful animals there, almost makes us want to move closer so that we can come more often :)

Thanks Vicki - there are lots of homes for sale in our area.  Paige Sinclair CEO

Sadly I don't have an image, if only I could take a snapshot of my mind! I am not even trying to win this for myself but for a gorgeous little guy and his Mum and brother. I have many memories of coming here on family holidays as a small girl and being so excited to shake the dolphins flipper and watching my mum get smooched in the audience by a massive fishy breathed seal. I am at the moment a part of a group fundraising to send a little 3 year old leukaemia patient to swim with dolphins at seaworld because Make A Wish is too full to take on his wish. Today after contacting Seaworld we found out he is too young for their programs and they would not help us. Needless to say we are all a bit gutted and then I remembered this and am so happy to see you are still open and operating (we moved to WA when I was 10 so I haven't been back). So I will be ringing to see if you can help us with an experience for someone his age but saw this and thought bugger it I might just try and win won while I'm at it!

Hi Lara
We will help you out and do what ever we can to make the little boy's wish come true, our team will be in contact with you very soon - Paige Sinclair CEO

Sharon B 12-Feb-2012

I have memories of the Pet Porpoise Pool from 30 Years ago. It was the first time I had ever been kissed......by a seal. I went on an excursion in March 1982 and I am planning to take my family back to visit in March, exactly 30 years later. I am interested if the trainer in the photo is still going strong. What an extraordinary opportunity!!

Hi Sharon, believe it or not Spencer the 'trainer' in the photo is still working with us today, thanks for your photo it is fabulous!  Paige Sinclair CEO

Eloise 07-Feb-2012

I visited PPP a few years ago while on holiday in Coffs with a friend. I have been wanting to go back ever since! I had such an amazing day, and still think about it all the time. The photo I have uploaded is framed and in my room. I LOVE marine life, and think PPP is a fantastic place. Thanks for the great memories, and I hope to visit again soon!

Thanks Eloise - we hope you come back soon too - 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..

Leah Cunningham

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

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 ..

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..

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 , ..

Lisa Park

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 ver..

Tracey Wall

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 cl..


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 ha..
