here is what some of our junior ranger's thought:

Jack, 12 - it was just heaps of fun, I made new mates & we actually did the job of a ranger, they really trusted us. Swimming with the seal is something I will always remember 

nick, 10 - it was epic awesomeness! The trainers were so nice, it was really special to help feeding the animals & seeing behind the scenes was super cool. making the food buckets was heaps messy but loads of fun!

chloe, 9 - it was fun, we learnt a lot about the animals and what they ate. feeding the animals & being so close was really exciting! 

parent - seeing my child have such a fun experience whilst learning was really special. the staff did such an amazing job & really made the kids "ranger for a day" this is something we will always remember. thank you

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.

Great to hear you enjoyed yourselves - Paige S..

I can't tell you how much we loved this incredible experience. It wil..

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..
