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! **PICNIC BASKETS/BLANKETS AVAILABLE**

 

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! 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 wife and I are on a two week working holiday in Coffs Harbour and we are trying to see some of Coffs while we are here. Yesterday we walked from our accommodation to the Jetty Markets and were a little disappointed. Walking back to our resort, we passed the dolphins conservation park. My wife said "Would you like to go and have a look?" I didn't immediately know what the facility was. I was..

    Pet porpoise pool holds a special memory for our family. Our 6 year old daughter was thrilled as she had the experience of brushing the dolphin's teeth. And our four month old couldn't have dreamt in his wildest dreams that he was being kissed by a seal! we don't need the pics to remind us of those memories ... they are etched in our minds. It was a brilliant holiday we had at Coffs Harbour , ..

    We absolutely loved visiting the Dolphin Marine Conservation Park on our recent holiday in Coffs Harbour. The park is such a relaxed environment to learn lots about the animals and meet them up close and personal. We particularly enjoyed the Dolphin experiences and we will be back to do this again soon. Thank you to all the friendly staff for answering our many questions and making us feel ver..

    Another thoroughly enjoyable time at the park today. We visit every 2 years on our holidays at Coffs. We have Dolphin pictures of the kids from each visit and it is always on the top of our list of "to do's". The staff are so great with all the animals and I recommend you guys to everyone. Thanks for all you do, for raising awareness and giving us and our children the opportunity to have up cl..

    My most recent adventure to Dolphin Marine Magic was with my 6 year old son and he was lucky enough to participate in a dolphin encounter. He was unable to swim at the time but the staff were great and able to assist him to get up close with a dolphin. He really loved the experience, he has ASD and felt extremely comfortable with the animal more so than with anything else in the pool! So he ha..
