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.

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 :)

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

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 much all over her. It was so cute and the kids and I loved it! We cannot wait to come back and do another experience with my husband and son joining us in the water :) My eldest daughter got chosen to come up and play games with the seal before our experience and she was so stoked. We seriously had the best time and have been raving about our perfect day. Thank you all for everything u do x


Thank you Stacey, sounds like a great day! 

Trudy Newman 13-Apr-2019

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 feed them. The highlight of her trip was being called out from among the guests to go up on stage and help in the dolphin show. She thought that was just wonderful. She will have memories to treasure and photos of a dolphin kiss (which was her next favourite thing) and the sea lion hug and a video of feeding the small penguins. We shared our experiences on social media and were inundated with by questions. The following day Emily wanted to go to the beach and take a bag to collect some rubbish. She was very proud to be able to collect some but also a bit angry that people put left it there in the first place. She can't wait to be 6 so that she can come back and have time in the water with the dolphins. Congratulations on your great efforts to educate the younger population as they are the adults of our future. We will definitely be back.


Thank you for this lovely feedback Trudy

My husband and I stopped at coffs harbour for a night on our way to the gold coast on out honeyhoneymoon. We went to the dolphin marine park while there , and had an amazing time , got photo's being kisses by a dolphin and seal and got to get in the pool with a dolphin and give it a cuddle which is a big dream off my bucket list. Would really love to win as we are doing the big trip again and stopping at coffs harbour again and looking forward to taking our son to the dolphin marine park on his 1st holiday. Thank you Shannon


Thank you Shannon, we look forward to seeing you next time 

Samantha thompson 26-Mar-2019

Omg best place ever i got kissed by dolphins hugged by seals and I've got the pics to remind me everyday. The service was awesome the presentations were really good. And the animals are just the best. Athena is my favourite. I'd say go its a cheap day out and the kids will love it!


Thank you so much Samantha 

Sonia Bailey 23-Mar-2019

We were in Coffs Harbour for 4 days to visit friends, and saw a sign for the Dolphin Marine Conservation Park. ON my birthday, we decided last minute to go to the park. Best. Decision. Ever! I got free entry for my birthday, we all had a really great time, and because it rained a little, the other families left early. We got to enjoy the remaining presentations in first class style! I'm planning on booking the kids in for the Marine Ranger Program on our next visit. This place is AWESOME!!!


Thank you Sonia :) 

hayden wells 19-Mar-2019

i was there on saturday the 16th with the create foundation and i really enjoyed it i believe that the park is a incredible place not only for the public but for the animals that live there. not only is it an amazing day out for families but it makes people stop and think about the issue of recycling to help keep rubbish out of the ocean. the problem of rubbish in the ocean is not going to stop without the help of people. it is also incredibly impressive that miri the sea lion can recycle better than most people. keep doing what you do it is helping the world


Thank you Hayden, so great to hear that our message was received, together we can make a difference

I went to the dolphin marine magic as a kid on school trips and with my family and it’s something you never forget I can’t wait for the day I can go again and take my family and see the magic in my sons eyes as he meets new animals and learn about them

Johanne 10-Feb-2019

When I go to my “happy place” I close my eyes and imagine myself out on a boat with my little dog and husband and have many dolphins swimming around the boat. To be able to touch and cuddle a dolphin in the flesh is an absolute blessing- thank you for caring for these precious animals xx

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 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..

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..
