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

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

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

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

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

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

Tracey F 07-Feb-2012

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!!

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 went up there nearly 2 yrs now after I turned 50. I had received money for my birthday and decided I wanted to do the “trainer for the day” experience. Was the best thing I have ever done in my life, seeing the behind the scene as well getting up and close to all the animals, my favourite parts were taking Elle for her walk around park twice, involved in show, and of course my experiences wi..

Thank you for our tour of your park. We have attended 3 times within the last 11years and have found this way was an amazing way to get up close with the animals and learn more about them. Our guide had lots of information to share and was very good at engaging with the children in the group. Highly recommend. We attended on the 14/7/20 Thank you for taking the time to share your lat..

Had a great visit to DMCP on Tuesday 30/6/2020, we had an escorted tour of the park with a very informative guide showing us around the park. This visit was very different to our normal visits but my granddaughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit! Thank you to all the wonderful people at the DMCP, you are all amazing! Hi Diane, Thank you for your lovely feedback, this is new to all..

Sharon Page

I took my two youngest grandchildren there in July 2018, they both loved it and still talk about it to this day, so we are planning to return with my oldest grandchild as well. They don't like the drive from Sydney, but they do love it there so it makes it worth the trip. Great place, educational and fun. Thank you Sharon, we look forward to seeing you again..

Sharon Fisher

My husband, daughter and my two grandchildren are driving up from Forster on the 26/06/20 to spend the weekend in Coffs Harbour for a getaway weekend.. My daughter , a single mum has just passed her paramedic course and is now in placement in Tea-gardens. She has been so flat out working 12hr shifts. So the reason to get them away for some quality time . I would love to surprise my grandbabies..
