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..

I’d love to thank Terry and his team today for all their help in making my Nan’s first time encountering a seal, a spectacular memory. My son had a dolphin encounter for his 11th birthday 8/12/18 so I thought I would get something nice done for my 90 year old nan. With struggling to walk and being elderly I emailed Terry and asked if he was able to help out in someway where we could beat the c..
