The cool salty breeze reaches my sunburnt cheeks. There's kangaroos and wallabies, birds in the trees. Its so exciting. There's such a big crowd, 'Mum give me your hand'. Together we climb the stairs. The shows started. Bucky the dolphin jumps out of the water. Somersaults, tumbles and loops. He's amazing... A giant seal is skateboarding toward me. My nostrils twitch from his fishy breath. My face tickles from his kiss. His eyes take me into another world. He's a beautiful Soul... I wander down to the pool. Jack passes me a ball and nods to Bucky. I'm so happy. Hours have passed and it's time to go. Bucky nussels my face, we are forever friends now. He swats me with a flipper full of water. I'm sure he's saying goodbye. I am a young girl, nine years old... Sweats dripping from my forehead it's so hot. I'm struggling to carry my squirming and wriggling two year old. She stops, something got her attention. Two Cockatoos perched in front of two glass jars filled with bits and pieces. The note is small, I lean in. I feel a tug on my ear and hear a 'clunk'. I've become the latest victim to these pair of poachers. The note warned me. I grab some ice cream and drinks from 'Creek Side Cafe' and head into the park. Dejavu... Here comes a seal on a skateboard. He nudges me out of the way and gently kisses my daughters face. The air is instantly filled with her delightful laughter. Salty is very pleased with himself. Off He goes clapping and waving. We make our way toward the pool. A young man passes my girl a giant toothbrush. Zippy trills and squeaks as she cleans his teeth. Zippy dive bombs, we are soaked. The young man explains that Zippy is the son of Bucky and Calamity. Its late and its time to go. I wonder how much of this my daughter will remember. Regardless I know the feeling of this experience will stay inside her heart forever. I am a twenty-five year old Mum... We've finally come to the end of our 1200km journey. Its cold and Im glad for my jacket. I'm like an old pro shuffling across the car park. Daughter and Grandson in tow. Excitement in the air, quickly we reach the grandstand. The Marina Show is amazing. Oh my gosh! Here comes a seal. Fishy kisses for everyone!... My Grandsons following Greg around. Greg passes him some fish. He drops it into the tank and its gulped up by the Loggerhead Turtle. He feeds the Little Blue Penguins, giant fish and Peacocks. So much to learn. Greg explains about the animals, conservation and environment... Sitting on the bench we have our photo taken with Aussie. He is such a handsome seal. We head to the pool. The dolphins are swimming up and down Stealing belly tickles as they go. Frolicking in the water, tossing balls in the air. They almost sound like they are giggling along with us. My Grandson gets a kiss from Jet. Raising his flipper Jet salutes us and waves goodbye. Its been forty years since Bucky and I become forever friends. Four decades of introducing our families to each other. Who would have thought our friendship would last a lifetime... It's been a wonderful day. This is what dreams are made off. I am a forty-nine year old Nanna .. But today my wrinkles and heart have been touched by 'PORPOISE MAGIC'...Once again, Im a young girl, nine years old. ๐Ÿฌ

Tarni Burton 05-May-2018

For my birthday I got the Ultimate Dolphin Experience! I got to swim and play with a dolphin (Jet) for 20 minutes and it was absolutely incredible! The trainer was amazing and the animals are taken such good care of! The amount of knowledge and experience the staff have make Marine Magic an amazing place, as well as the gorgeous animals that call the park home. I would 100% go back over and over again and recommend it to everyone, especially the dolphin swim!

Hi Tarni, Thank you very much for taking the time to get back to us. All the best & see you next time! Paige & the team at DMM :)  

Gabrielle Bent 25-Apr-2018

This place is fantastic, I came here in May 2014 after I was invited along by one of your employees, Kieran. It was fantastic, well worth the money we paid to get in and the cost of the photo's for the dolphin and seal kiss. It was brilliant and I plan to come again the next time I come to Coffs Harbour!

Thank you Gabrielle, we look forward to seeing you next time you are in Coffs Harbour. Paige Sinclair, Managing Director  

Kristy Wren 19-Apr-2018

Brilliant !!!! It doesn't even sum up how amazing our experience was today. We went for my 6yo Birthday where she swam with Bella the Dolphin not only was she so thrilled and excited with the experience of playing patting and Dancing with her we didn't expect that we could play with the dolphins in the main pool we played ball and gave them a belly rub as well. There is so much to do we spent all day there. Feeding the fairy penguins was a treat for me really where else can you do this where its included in the price !!!!! We got to hug seals feed Turtles as well as the port Jackson sharks this place is a must for not only children but also adults the staff were amazing so friendly to have a chat and tell us all about the animals and there history really anything we asked they were more than happy to tell us. We will not only be back but will be telling all our friends about Dolphin Marine Magic.

 

 Thank you for your amazing review on our park Kristy. We look forward to welcoming you back. Regards, Paige Sinclair, Managing Director

Thank you for your wonderful feedback Colleen. Paige Sinclair, Managing Director  

isla 08-Apr-2018

I have been a massive marine fan since the hit marine show 'Blue Zoo' came out when I was ten. I absolutely loved the show, and knew that I had to one day visit the place the show was set. Living so far away in north QLD, it was always hard for my family to come down to Coffs. Eventually, on the 5th of April 2018, I finally got to go to the park. It was such an amazing day. Everything was so hands-on, unlike some of the other major marine parks. I loved how everyone got a chance to get a photo from a seal and a kiss from a dolphin, and how it was optional to buy them or not. The show was incredible, so hands on and educational. I got chosen to go up on stage and feed the dolphins, and that was the highlight of my day. We then went on to feeding the fish at the Solitary Reefs, which I absolutely loved. Everything the part provided was even better then I had hoped. It was a day I will never forget. I can't wait to come back to the park again. Thankyou Dolphin Marine Magic!

 

Hi Isla, What an amazing time you had! We love having our Blue Zoo fans visit us! Thank you so much for your testimonial & we look forward to welcoming you back to the park one day. All the best from all of the team at DMM :)

Debbie Dye 04-Apr-2018

A friend & I stopped at Dolphin Marine magic on the way back from a girl's trip up North & we were pleasantly surprised at how close we could get to the dolphins. They were right beside us & we were even allowed to touch them which was a bonus! Aussie the Seal was also a highlight, teaching us about the dangers of plastics in the ocean and demonstrating his recycling skills. Overall it was a great visit and would love to come back with the kids next time. A +++++

 

Thank you Debbie, we are so pleased to hear about the great time you had! See you next time! DMM :)

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..

Bianca

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..

Karen

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 d..

Stacey Grundy

Omg, what can I say except what an amazing experience we had on our visit. My 3 girls and I did a shallow water dolphin experience and it was the best! The trainer was very informative and so good with the kids. The kids played games with the dolphin, fed it and had photos. The funniest was my youngest who played the game where she splashed the dolphin and then it splashed her back 20 times as..

Trudy Newman

On Wednesday 10th April My husband and I bought our 4 year old grandaughter to your park. It was the best place that we could have bought her to. She learned so much in a smaller environment without the distractions of all the crowds and rides. Even at 4 she is passionate about keeping our oceans clean for our wildlife. She loved that she could interact with some of the animals and get to hand..

Karen Purchase

I turned 50 in August and I used the money from my family and friends to tick off 2 of my bucket list, to touch a seal and a dolphin. My dreams came to when I booked myself into being โ€˜โ€™Trainer for the Dayโ€, I blew my mind as I got to see everything from behind the park and how well looked after each animal, I got to walk seals an their exercise, participate in the show (I was so excited I for..
