Attraction details
Owner description: 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 family fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Dolphin Marine Magic is within walking distance of many motel, hotels and vacation accommodations. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Every day there is a morning and an afternoon schedule for sea and dolphin shows (with kisses available to anyone who wants to get close and personal) and feeding of reef sih, crested horn sharks and little blue penguins. This is billed as "the worlds most interactive marine park" and although I've only been to a few dolphin parks, this seems to be the case.

The gift store offers lots of marine-related gifts.

Prices are 34.00 per adult and children 3 - 15 years !8.00 with additional children 12.00. Discount rates for seniors, students and backpackers. You may also pay extra for an ultimate dolphin swim as well as seal experiences and Trainer for a Day programs.

This place is well worth a visit. We were there in October 2012 and had the opportunity to swim with the dolphins. A memory we will cherish forever!

“Swimming with dolphins”

Brilliant. The children loved swimming with the dolphins. Lots of other interactive experiences. Expensive but worth the money.
