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..

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..

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..

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..

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.
