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 get to pat an actual dolphin & hug a slightly wet 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!
 

Don’t forget your swimmers & towel!!! We have a range of In-Water encounters for the entire family. All of our experiences include 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 8-16 yrs) 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 ABC 3 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 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..
