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..

Great to hear you enjoyed yourselves - Paige S..

Best birthday ever! I spent two days at Coffs Harbour on January 6 and January 7. I travelled down on the 5th and left on the 8th, my sole reason for traveling 7 hours by train each way being to spend my birthday at your park which is on January 6. I loved it so much and everyone was so friendly that I have already booked my next holiday for 2021 so I can see you all again. My first day I book..

My family and I went to The dolphin marine conservation last September and it was the best experience of our lives!

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..
