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.

Dolphin Marine Magic is an excellent attraction for families with young kids (up to 13). The dolphin show is great and there are opportunities to pay and kiss seals, pat the Dolphins, feed fish and turtles and the fairy penguins. Getting up close and personal makes this attraction so much more enjoyable. Definitely a great morning or afternoon out.

Can I just sat before anything else that I have read some of the negative reviews that have been posted and all I can say is that these people obviously went there expecting a circus show! Did any of you actually listen to the commentary that was given during the dolphin show or any of the other interactions, did any... More

I was unsure how I would feel about the welfare of the dolphins and seals. But they seem genuinely exuberant and cooperative and love all the fishy rewards. It seems to be run in a very positive manner. I loved having a dolphin and seal kiss, feeding the seal, penguins, and ray, port Jackson shark and fish. The show was... More

The Dolphin Marine Magic (ex Pet Porpoise Pool) at Coffs Harbour has got to be one of the best attractions I have visited. Not only do you have the chance to watch some true T L C to the resident dolphins and seals of the pools by their carers but you get to enjoy watching them entertain everyone with their... More

My family (two adults + two kids 12 and 14years) adored this place. So interactive. Everyone can feed a dolphin, feed penguin, get a kiss from a seal, watch the shows. Had a family owned feel, but presented a professional, world class attraction. The best activity we found in Coffs by far.

We had a great day visiting here. The staff were great and the experience was awesome. It was great that it's in a small environment, it gave a very personal touch to our visit. Well worth a visit, we didn't have kids but it's a place for adults as well.

Free kisses from a seal and a dolphin, an education interactive seal and dolphin show. Feed the turtles and fish in the aquarium tank and feed tiny blue penguins all for the entry price. Swimming with the Dolphins available for a lot more $$
