Penguins Dancing - 2011 - 01

Family appeal

As one of our guests wrote on TripAdvisor:

“My family had an amazing time. The free dolphin and seal kisses for my whole family – brilliant! We learned a lot about the animals.” (Extract from TripAdvisor)

Seal Kiss - Child Group 02

Kid-friendly programs

Open every day of the year, we appeal to all ages and families in particular. Each day we stage our Marine Discovery presentations (two or three times a day, depending on the season). Everyone can experience feeding the seal at the start of the show, see and feed the fish in the reef tank and feed the Little Blue Penguins. We are different to other animal parks by our ability to engage visitors with our animals in an extremely personal manner. No other facility promises every guest an opportunity to be kissed by both a dolphin and a seal at no extra cost. Therefore, every guest is  touched by magic!

All of our marine animals have been brought into permanent human care as a result of an injury that has prohibited the animal from being released back to the wild. We also home the offspring of past/present marine mammals and animals from other institutions now closed. Last year we rescued, rehabilitated and released over 60 animals.

What’s in it for Mums?

While a visit to us won’t give mum a break, we will create lasting memories for the family and hopefully inspire, connect and engage the whole family to recycle, reuse and refuse items that can be harmful to our oceans sustainability and health.

Did you know?

In the Coffs Harbour region, we are the only place in Australia where the ocean’s cooler currents of the south and the warmer currents of the north meet, giving us the most diverse region for marine life.
