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.

Loved spending time with the kids and the dolphins. The shows were great. The raptile show was great but went for a little too long. Small place but if you want to see a dolphin or seal fantastic. Don't eat at the Cafe.

The place is very well run, well presented and there is plenty of animal interaction for adults and children. This is actually our 4-th visit here. The lunch selection is reasonable and the seal and dolphin main show is interesting and not too long.

This place is amazing, we took pictures with dolphins and seals, petted them. They are very friendly and there is enough time for everyone to interact with these beautiful creatures.

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
