My family with two teenage children travelled from Port Macquarie to visit on 15th July because my daughters school camp to Coffs Harbour was cancelled and the one thing she wanted to see the most was the Dolphin Marine Conservation Park. We arrived late so didn’t see the dolphin show but absolutely loved seeing the seals, dolphins, penguins and other marine life with their daily goings on. We were treated to a special viewing of a seal close up during his practise medical checkup. Staff were so friendly and caring. We will come back again.


Thank you Michelle, we hope to see you again soon :)

I was a junior marine ranger for the whole day and it was such an incredible experience, it is definitely worth coming and having a look at, and even if you are not a junior marine ranger it is still mind blowingly awesome, one of my favorite moments there was being able to see the dolphin show and also being able to pat the dolphins belly, my favorite dolphin is Calamity because she is really affectionate and kept coming over to the area were i was and bobbing her head out of the water to have a look at me and to say hello, i have never had a better experience, this has definitely been the highlight of my holidays. Thank you for giving me the best experience ever 🐬😊😍😆


Oh wow Amelia, it sure sounds like you had a great day with us & the beautiful animals - thank you for your AMAZING feedback :)

I had an amazing experience with my sister, we booked a swim with Jet one of your dolphins. We often talk about doing it again and asking our other sister to join us. A wonderful park and great for our kids to have these experiences right on our doorstep.


Thank you Donna, we look forward to seeing you all again sometime

We absolutely love coming to the park for a play and a visit! We Live about 5hrs away and always make the trip each year to Coffs Harbour as a family, The park is always our first activity we do! We have Swam with the dolphins, it’s amazing, our daughter played with and cuddled a seal and loved every second and as a family we love feeding the penguins! My daughter and I even got pulled out of the crowd to feed and brush dolphins teeth!! We can’t wait to return in early November!!


Thank you so much for sharing this with us & for regularly making the trip to see us

Hi my entry is not about having been there it is about wanting to see photos of my two beautiful grandchildren having fun there. We live in the U.K. our two gorgeous grandchildren EVELYN 7 and OLIVER 5 left our shores to a new life in Australia 5 years ago. It’s tough sending gifts as postal charges are so high. I saw this Park whilst looking for possible gifts I could book online for them. I thought how lovely it looked and wished I could go to a park like yours with them. That is not possible so the next best thing is to get them tickets and ask mummy and daddy to take videos and photo’s to send us so we can view these and get the next best thing. Nothing can replace being able to spend time there with them, but knowing they have smiled and enjoyed time in a beautiful park and spent time with the lovely dolphins and seals would lighten our hearts. This park is a beautiful country and this beautiful country has the honour of having our beautiful grandchildren. I hope they will enjoy the tickets we will get them.

Thank you Rosalind 

Melissa 03-Jun-2019

We visited last year and absolutely loved it! We had been to the Gold Coast and stopped over on the way home to Sydney. My 3 teenagers all agreed it was the best place we visited! We didn’t have time to swim with the dolphins but we are planning on returning this October and will allow more time. Thank you for a great experience

Thank you Melissa, we hope to see you in October :) 

Kristy Atkins 02-Jun-2019

This spectacular place is my absolute happy place and has been since the age of approx 10yrs of age . I moved to Coffs Harbour when I was 7. I met a dolphin for the first time and swam with them for the first time at the age of 10 and since then my passion has grown so much more . I am now 28 yrs old and living in Qld , my last memorable time was volunteering here at the park for 3+ months every Sunday before I relocated to Qld. My life was forever changed after spending every weekend I could there even when I was not volunteering I would hang by the pool with my fav dollies💕 I have an 8 month old now and we are visiting this coming weekend, would love nothing more than to share this with her and have her experience the joy I did . Thank you for all your amazing hard dedicated work you do , I’ll always be of support 🐬 much love Kristy Atkins I cannot wait to see Bucky particularly and calamity they are my faves

Thank you Kristy, what a lovely message for us :) 

Jeremy Edwards 14-May-2019

Hi, I would like to thank all the staff, that made my families day at the park on mothers day. It started with we were running late, after having to wait for a table at the cafe. I took my 2 year old to get a dolphin kiss, my wife had to go finish feeding our 2 month old. The staff at the kisses waited longer for my wife, this was much appreciated. after spending a couple of hours here we had went and got the family hug a seal photo, the staff here again where so friendly they made our 2 year old so comfortable and got her smiling for the photo. only down side my eyes where closed, though on a bright side, the photo people never charged us and we got to keep it. Its all these little things that make customers feel so welcomed and so thought of and want to come back.


Thank you Jeremy, sounds like a lovely Mother's Day for you all. We hope to see you & your family again soon. 

Tammy Hawkins 08-May-2019

By far the best family friendly park for children and adults to learn and interact with marine life. The staff are friendly and helpful, willing to answer any questions. There is something for everyone at any age. Love this park.


Hi Tammy, thank you for your feedback, we hope to see you again. 

Amy Gray 02-May-2019

I visited with my then new boyfriend in 2012, we have since had twins, now aged 4, who we are bringing for a visit this year on October. I can’t wait to watch them get a dolphin and and seal kiss, and interact with the animals at the park, which was the highlights for me. We loved our past visit so mush as a couple, and can’t wait to visit again as a family to reminisce and share the experience with our children.

Thank you Amy, we hope to see you & your family soon :) 

Karen 15-Apr-2019

It was the most amazing experience. Your staff looked after our assistance dog at the front counter and she happily slept the whole time we were in the park. We found the shows to be so educational and informative of marine conservation and the size of the park was perfect for our children (both have autism) to be able to cope. We had booked in for a meet the seal and a shallow swim with the dolphin, I wasn't sure how the kids would go but your staff just made it so relaxing and calm, they had the best time and when they got back to school in Tasmania they told their friends all about what they had learnt about the animals, how the skin of the dolphin and seal felt and most importantly the raspberry that Bella gave dad after she gave him a kiss(it was so funny).... Your staff not only explained the important issues to the kids in a way that they could understand but also made it a fun and a safe experience. So thankyou management and staff, we have highly recommend this park to family and friends. :)


Thank you for your feedback Karen, we are so pleased to hear that you had such a great time with us here at DMCP

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..

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..

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..
