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

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

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

I enjoyed feeding the seals and dolphins even back in 1975 at Coffs Pet Porpoise Pool when i was 6 years old.

That is great photo Jacki, the PPP Dolphin Marine Magic opened its doors back in 1970. Paige Sinclair CEO

We have lived in Coffs for 5 years and whenever family or friends visit we try and get the chance to bring family along to the PPP. My parents treated our daughter, who is a mad animal enthusiast, to a dolphin experience which was amazing. We took our 5 year old niece and nephew when they came up last year. Our nephew has mild Asperger's and he was absolutely amazed. If you get the chance to spend some time here do it as it has so many different options for the whole family. The daily show is fabulous and loved the interaction. So lucky we live in the same town as this amazing facility. Well done PPP!!!!

Thanks Tracey for your continued support by bringing your guests to visit us and for the testimonial, Paige Sinclair CEO

We have been coming to the Porpoise Pool for years, each time we come it gets better and better. Our family thinks this is the best Marine Park ever! We love how we can interact with the animals. My children think they want to grow up to be Marine Biologists. As they tell me this I wonder where did they get this idea, and then it hits me. The interest they have has been inspired by the show and your messages to keep our marine environment clean. My son will be staring Uni in the next few years ao I guess we will see. And the new stage looks great, we liked the boat but we think it was getting a little tired. See you again next year...keep up the great work! Jo

Jenny 08-Jan-2012

What a fantastic place, I loved it! I was in the water with the animals and was amazed how much interaction we had with the animals.  The seals were so cheeky and I could not believe how fast they were in the water.  We played piggy in the middle and the seal won every time.  I would highly recommend this place to everyone!!

Paige & Aidan 02-Jan-2012

We visited the Pet Porpoise Pool on December 30th, my boyfriend had never seen or touched a dolphin before, he was amazed by the whole park! He has not stopped talking about it for our whole holiday. I had been there before, but in the past few years there have been lots of changes, new stage and new enclosures for the animals. I always enjoy visiting and I would recommend this park to everyone. Thank you for the great photos, we will cherish them!

Mitchell 24-Dec-2011

Fantastic that you don't charge to feed the animals and extra activities. We have five kids so its very affordable and worthwhile coming. I will tell everyone about this place. They won't be disappointed! Thanks so much

Tracey 08-Dec-2011

Fantastic experience, the dolphins and seals bought tears to my eyes. Great to have such a hands on experience. Thank you. Wonderful friendly staff and great education to all about caring for the environment.

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..

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 ..

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 , ..
