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.

This is a great place to visit - two shows daily and this organisation is very well run and helps many sea creatures that are injured or in need of nursing back to full health. Wonderful show and the best part is that you are so close to the dolphins and seals.

We had been to Dolphin Marine Magic over 30 years ago when travelling and went back again last week. I had pre booked the Ultimate Dolphin Experience and it was the highlight of our visit. I got to interact with a dolphin for about 20 mins and it was one of the best days ever. There is also a seal... More

This is hard to watch. Humans trying to look cheerful whilst coercing animals to do trick for other humans for money...very sad

Made a last minute decision to visit here on our last day in Coffs based on other positive reviews and are so glad we did. Had a fantastic lunch in the cafe before enjoying the afternoon shows. At first thought the entry price was a bit excessive but the interactive nature of the program made it worthwhile. The compact set... More
