Our Bottlenose Dolphins

Dolphin Marine Conservation Park is home to a family of four indo-pacific bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops aduncus).

All the dolphins in our care have either been born right here at Dolphin Marine Conservation Park or are animals that have been rescued with debilitating injuries that meant they would have been unable to survive in the wild. Please allow us to introduce you to the family...

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..
