Had a great visit to DMCP on Tuesday 30/6/2020, we had an escorted tour of the park with a very informative guide showing us around the park. This visit was very different to our normal visits but my granddaughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit! Thank you to all the wonderful people at the DMCP, you are all amazing!

 

Hi Diane, Thank you for your lovely feedback, this is new to all of us so it's great to hear from someone who has been here before. DMCP :)

I took my two youngest grandchildren there in July 2018, they both loved it and still talk about it to this day, so we are planning to return with my oldest grandchild as well. They don't like the drive from Sydney, but they do love it there so it makes it worth the trip. Great place, educational and fun.

 

Thank you Sharon, we look forward to seeing you again

My husband, daughter and my two grandchildren are driving up from Forster on the 26/06/20 to spend the weekend in Coffs Harbour for a getaway weekend.. My daughter , a single mum has just passed her paramedic course and is now in placement in Tea-gardens. She has been so flat out working 12hr shifts. So the reason to get them away for some quality time . I would love to surprise my grandbabies with passes to your amazing Dolphin Marine Conservation Park. Last time we visited with my 2 younger children was in 2001.. A long time ago.. My fingers and toes are crossed 🤞🤞By the way you guys do an amazing job👏

 

Thank you Sharon & good luck

Best birthday ever! I spent two days at Coffs Harbour on January 6 and January 7. I travelled down on the 5th and left on the 8th, my sole reason for traveling 7 hours by train each way being to spend my birthday at your park which is on January 6. I loved it so much and everyone was so friendly that I have already booked my next holiday for 2021 so I can see you all again. My first day I booked to do three experiences. First I did the meet the seal with Athena, then I did meet the dolphin with Jett and finally I met baby Hugo. I am over 180kg and was in so much pain but I was sooooooo happy. During the meet the Hugo experience I collapsed and the staff were so genuine and helpful. They brought me a water bottle and two ice packs to put on my face and neck and sat and chatted with me. Due to the fact that I didn’t get to experience much of the Hugo experience they knew that I had taken photos on my phone and knew I was coming back the next day so they offered to print off one of my photos that I took of Hugo, which they ended up doing the very next day- thanks Annie for being so caring and understanding. You made my experience so much better! My only gripe with the park was that they need better crowd control or more feeding times throughout the day. I was the first one in the gate and didn’t get to see the seal breakfast because crowds were three to four deep. I didn’t even bother with the penguin feeding because it was the same problem. The second day I spent pretty much the majority of the day just watching the dolphins. I am OBSESSED with dolphins and that was why I had travelled so far to see them. The marine discovery presentation is amazing. Next time I come back I plan on doing swimming with the dolphins and sea lions. My birthday is in January so by then I hope the sea lion swimming will be back up and running. Here’s a video of 40 minutes worth of footage from my holiday. You can use any of the footage that you want: https://youtu.be/jRHeSMFmuqY Thank you so much for an amazing birthday! See you in 2021 :)

 

Hi Rachel, Thank you so very much for sending us your feedback, take care from all of us here at DMCP :)

My family and I went to The dolphin marine conservation last September and it was the best experience of our lives! When we watched the dolphin show, there were so many smiles, laughs and really enjoyable moments. After the show was the best part, We got to put our hands in the water and see if the dolphins came to us! When they did, it was so magical, I felt at peace and decided I wanted to pursue my dream of becoming a marine biologist. The whole experience was amazing! I remember when my sister threw a ball into the water and the dolphin caught it, she was so happy! Unfortunately we live in Sydney and haven’t been there since but I still remember getting a peck from the dolphin and taking a picture with a seal, and I can’t wait to go back again!

 

Oh wow thank you Taneesha :)

Thank you Andrew :) 

Melanie Weaver 26-Feb-2020

I have not come down from the high of having one of my best days ever! As a 37 year old, I have never experienced being close up with a beautiful dolphin and today my dreams came true. You could not make my smile disappear, I was able to touch and interact with the dolphins and that was just normal entry! I will be back for an experience with these beautiful creatures. I had happy tears for most of my time there today. Incredible, amazing. Loved it so much

 

Thank you Melanie, that is so lovely to read :) 

Sheridan Lockyer 26-Feb-2020

During our recent family holiday in the area the overcast weather lead us to dolphins We took 6 children ranging in age from 7-16 and all of them had a ball One of the children was chosen to play ball with the seal and described it as the best day ever While all of us had a great time and received great customer service I was blown away with the care shown to my family member who is in a wheelchair the staff all made sure she could see and even spent extra time to ensure she could touch the dolphin Thankyou for giving her the opportunity to do what everyone else could do and for providing access to all

 

You are most welcome & thank you for sharing your day with us :) 

Joanne 22-Feb-2020

My daughter (4) and I would like to thank everyone at the Dolphin Conservation Park for the amazing work you do and the memorable experience you give to the public. All the animals are well taken care of, loved and respected. We had a shallow Dolphin private experience in the water with the gorgeous "Jett" and trainer Alice. I can't tell you how much we loved this incredible experience. It will forever be cherished and remembered as a high light of our lives. See you all next year ❤❤❤❤

 

Oh wow Joanne that is such a beautiful memory for you both, we look forward to seeing you again soon :) 

Jessica Higgins 21-Feb-2020

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 Jessica so happy to hear about your day with us & Zippy!!
