Overview

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. Over the years we have won many business and tourism awards. Dolphin Marine Magic is a fully accredited marine park with the regional Zoo and Aquarium Association. We are licensed by the Department of Primary Industries to exhibit the animals we have in our care. 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.

My 12 & 14 year old girls love it at Dolphin Marine Magic. My 12 year old cleaned out horse paddocks to save up enough money to realise her dream of swimming with a seal. She loved the experience and has raved about it to...More

Took our family to see the sea life show and whilst we accept there needs to be a specific routine in place it was evident it's been performed so often that the staff just sounded bored senseless. The programme and cashier also advised the show...More

We did the dolphin and seal encounters, and they were some of the most incredible experiences I've ever had. Due to the small tour sizes, we were able to spend a lot of time with the dolphin and both of the seals. We were able...More

Yes you can take your own photos, but because of regulations the area is not at the optimum angle. We need to keep an escape route open for our animals if they do need it, or out of the splash zone with the Dolphins so the... More
