Our Bottlenose Dolphins

Dolphin marine Magic is home to a family of five indo-pacific bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops aduncus).

All the dolphins in our care have either been born right here at Dolphin Marine Magic or are animals that have been rescued with debilitating injuries that meant they would have been unable to survive in the wild. Please allow us to introduce you to the family...

This was my last visit to The pet Porpoise pool 35 years ago I was 7. we used to go every year when I was little and my grandmother getting kissed by a seal was the highlight of the day. I loved feeding the fairy penguins and my dream is to one day swim with the dolphins. I would love to win passes to marine magic to experience it again with my family. What great memories Katherine, we hope to w..

I was reminded today of how special swimming with Dolphins is, never shared my experience before. It was 2006, my Daughter swam with Calamity and bay Bella, she was lucky and had one on one with her. I myself swam with the majestic Bucky, (I have a tattoo of him now), best experience ever. I was also lucky enough for little Miss Pearly to jump on my head, really wasn't expecting it. The whole fami..
