The name ‘Dolphin Marine Magic’ is a trading name for the iconic Pet Porpoise Pool Pty Limited. Dolphin Marine Magic is located on the beautiful Mid North Coast of NSW, in the city of Coffs Harbour and sits approximately midway between Sydney and Brisbane. We are very close to the jetty precinct and adjacent to the Coffs Creek and we have been ‘edutaining’ (educating/entertaining) and engaging visitors for more than four decades.On Boxing Day in 1970, the marine park opened as a rescue and rehabilitation centre for native marine animals, and we continue with this work. We have a Rehabilitation Licence issued by NSW – Office of Environment & Heritage – NSW National Parks & Wildlife Services. Additionally, we work closely with our local branch of NSW National Parks & Wildlife Services and have a Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) with them on how we will work together for the benefit of our native marine animals.

Great for the kids

Loved it here, $99 for family entry, the only thing I would suggest is more shade and more hands on activities for the kids. A must do if your in coffs harbor

We enjoyed touching Dolphins and feeding seals and penguins-I had been before but it's great interacting with and being up close to these creatures.They let everyone get involved-we also fed fish and saw a few rescued turtles.suggest buying tickets online as cheaper than counter- I used phone .

Went today, the four of us. Best day out. We even paid for our children (13 and 10) to do the swallow dolphin experience, it's a day they will never forget. Heaps to do, feeding tiny penguins, seals, even stingrays!!!

Had a fantastic visit, the dolphins are fabulous and my 2 year old loved being able to play with them and be that close to them. We also got some great pictures of us getting kisses from a dolphin and a seal. There are not many places you are able to do this so we were really pleased with this... More

This was a great venue! Little pricey: $35 each adult for such a small place but so much to see and do! Everyone is able to have their photo taken kissed by a gorgeous sealion or amazing dolphins. Totally free, get a friend to take a photo or buy the professional ones for only $15. Dolphin show was excellent as... More
