School Holiday Marine Magic

EXPERIENCE. DISCOVER. ACT.

 

Dolphin Marine Conservation Park has got you covered for some magic and fun in the School Holiday’s with many exciting marine experiences for the whole family!

Not only will you have a slippery smooch from a dolphin & a slightly wet hug from a seal every day, you will also see our fun, interactive daily marine discovery

 presentations, help us feed the critters at the solitary reef tank & meet some shy but very cute little blue penguins & feed them a little fish!
 

Don’t forget your swimmers & towel!!! We have a range of In-Water encounters for the entire family. All of our experiences include at least twenty minutes of actual contact time with our amazing animals where you will enjoy patting and playing with them while you learn about your new friend's biology and conservation from an experienced Marine Mammal Specialist who will also be happy to answer any questions you may have.

 

Our friendly photographers will also be there at each experience and will capture the magical moment between you and your new animal friend. (we do recommend booking in advance so you don’t miss out).

 

Creekside Café is open daily from 7:30am with an extensive menu catering for everybody in the family and an amazing kids menu to keep those little tummies happy! The café has seating inside & outside or why not ask for take away & enjoy your meals overlooking the Coffs Harbour Creek which is just a stones throw away from our front door!

 

For the Marine Ranger in the family (aged 8-16yrs) why not book into a full day of our Junior Marine Ranger Program! You will experience a day in the life of a marine trainer just like the Rookie stars of the abc3 hit tv series blue zoo! meet and play with some of the animal stars of blue zoo, help to make fishy animal buckets of food, help to feed and care for sick and injured wildlife in the marine hospital and educate the public about environmental conservation, just like the blue zoo rookies! Be warned you will go home smelling like fish!

Don't have a full day to spare then book in for our 1 hour Animal Care Tour where you will go "back of house" & learn all about our rehabilitation program for sick & injured marine life & check on some of our smaller animal friends such as the penguins & fresh water turtles!

FACE PAINTING you ask?? Yep we have that too!!! Selected days - extra cost involved - just look for Trudy in the shade of the marquee! There are so so many things happening at Dolphin Marine Conservation Park every day in the School Holidays - where else would you be!!!

    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..

    My family with two teenage children travelled from Port Macquarie to visit on 15th July because my daughters school camp to Coffs Harbour was cancelled and the one thing she wanted to see the most was the Dolphin Marine Conservation Park. We arrived late so didn’t see the dolphin show but absolutely loved seeing the seals, dolphins, penguins and other marine life with their daily goings on. We..

    I was a junior marine ranger for the whole day and it was such an incredible experience, it is definitely worth coming and having a look at, and even if you are not a junior marine ranger it is still mind blowingly awesome, one of my favorite moments there was being able to see the dolphin show and also being able to pat the dolphins belly, my favorite dolphin is Calamity because she is really..

    We visited last year and absolutely loved it! We had been to the Gold Coast and stopped over on the way home to Sydney. My 3 teenagers all agreed it was the best place we visited! We didn’t have time to swim with the dolphins but we are planning on returning this October and will allow more time. Thank you for a great experience Thank you Melissa, we hope to see you in October :)..

    Hi my entry is not about having been there it is about wanting to see photos of my two beautiful grandchildren having fun there. We live in the U.K. our two gorgeous grandchildren EVELYN 7 and OLIVER 5 left our shores to a new life in Australia 5 years ago. It’s tough sending gifts as postal charges are so high. I saw this Park whilst looking for possible gifts I could book online for them. I ..

    This spectacular place is my absolute happy place and has been since the age of approx 10yrs of age . I moved to Coffs Harbour when I was 7. I met a dolphin for the first time and swam with them for the first time at the age of 10 and since then my passion has grown so much more . I am now 28 yrs old and living in Qld , my last memorable time was volunteering here at the park for 3+ months eve..

    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 ..

    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...
