How to become a Marine Ranger for the day

For a truly magical experience, it’s hard to top Dolphin Marine Magic in Coffs Harbour. Home to a menagerie of marine animals, from dolphins to seals and penguins, the marine park offers exciting daily shows and some unique animal encounters including the chance to kiss a dolphin and kiss and hug a seal too For keen young conservationists, why not sign them up for the day as a ‘Marine Ranger’. The kids will learn about animal conservation, as well as get ‘hands-on’ with animal meal preparation and daily care. The highlight of the day is the chance to swim with a resident dolphin, in their natural environment, which is a magical experience! At the completion of the day, your child will also receive a certificate of participation.

For a fantastic place to stay the Pacific Bay Resort just outside of Coffs, has many things going for it. From its prime location – nestled between the ocean and hinterland rainforest – to the three swimming pools, tennis courts, spa, and nine-hole golf course. The hotel is under new management, as is the in-house restaurant, the Bayside Bar and Grill. Jutting out over a lagoon, where water dragons laze in a tropical setting, the restaurant has an all-new menu featuring both family-friendly meals and an exciting range of fine dining options!
