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

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

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

Roslyn 26-Feb-2012

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

Tegan Guthrie 26-Feb-2012

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

Terrie C 26-Feb-2012

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

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..

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 experienc..

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 ag..

Sumit Thapa

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 retu..

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 ..

Rob Brigden

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..

Shana Ghadially

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 , ..
