Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
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. 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.

We took our three year old and infant who both had an excellent time. The joy on their faces was worth admission price alone. The marine magic show was entertaining and well done, the animals well trained and seem very happy. We got kissed by everything and fed them as well. My 3 year old and I especially loved feeding the reef fish. Not cheap but better value than other theme parks especially given all the extra interaction is free.

I thought this was an experience I will have for the rest of life... I was kissed by a seal... Very fishy! The dolphins were amazing and we got to touch them, they are so friendly.
Really Loved it! Recommend to everyone all ages.

the marine animals steal the show. it is informative and entertaining and if kissing a porpoise is your kind of fun, line up with every-one else.
