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.

Excellent advice from her, turned up early at 8:30am the next day and had a full cooked breakfast whilst waiting for the main park to open. Now i... More

Our first day of our Coffs Harbour getaway and the first on our list was Dolphin Marine Magic. Friendly staff, fantastic show, my son Micah enjoyed his kisses from the seals and the dolphins, usually very scared of animals, but was very welcoming when the lovely professional staff gave a friendly approach making the day a memorable one.

We had a great morning at Dolphin Marine Magic. Our 5 year old loved the dolphin and seal kisses. The entry into the park is well priced and a great way to spend a few hour. The staff are great - very helpful and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend it.

I have always loved Dolphins since I was a young child. I visited this park years ago and loved it but this time it just made me sad to see such beautiful creatures in small pools, forced to perform tricks for food, and being ridden like surf boards. I think the age of marine parks is coming to an end.... More

We booked our tickets online and got a discount. Started with kisses from a seal and a dolphin! No obligation to buy them, but we did as they captured the moment. Then there was a seal and dolphin show. They get the kids up to help and interact and I noticed no one gets missed, unless you really don't want... More

Great place for families ! Wonderful shows, price is reasonable. Best part is the photo and close up opportunities with dolphins and seals without the huge extra price tag like other parks such as sea world.

We had an excellent time at Dolphin Marine Magic. At first we were a bit put off by the price but it is actually well worth it. You get to get up close and personal with lots of marine life. The staff are friendly, helpful and very informative. My daughter loved getting to play with the Dolphins and get photos... More

What a wonderful way to spend a couple oh hours. If you enjoy marine life this is the place to go. There are great interactive shows with the penguins, seals and dolphins. The staff are fantastic and you can get up close and personal with a variety of marine life. This is a super fun family outing
