Book Experience   Buy Gift Voucher

At Dolphin Marine Magic we offer a range of incredible and unforgettable experiences that allow you to get up close and form a personal bond with our friendly animals in a relaxed and intimate setting.

All of our experiences include at least twenty minutes of actual contact time with our amazing animals where you will enjoy patting and playing with them while you learn about your new friend's biology and conservation from an experienced Marine Mammal Specialist who will also be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Our friendly photographers will also be there at each experience and will capture the magical moment between you and your new animal friend. Each animal experience at Dolphin Marine Magic includes a professional photograph.

There is an animal experience available for all ages and ability levels, including shallow water encounters, swimming with seals and dolphins for more confident swimmers, a land based dolphin and seal encounter for guests who do not wish to enter the water and the day long Trainer For A Day for guests who want to experience what life is really like for the Marine Mammal Specialists who work at Dolphin Marine Magic. Many of our programs even give you the option to book your encounter as a private experience, ensuring you and your friends and family can share a private and intimate memory that will last forever.

We take bookings up to 12 months in advance and prices are seasonal. Please book early, as sessions fill very fast and we have limited spaces. If you want to book an encounter during the busy school holiday periods, it is essential you book well in advance.

  • Any medical conditions and/or disabilities may effect the encounter - please contact our friendly staff on 02 66591 910 for more information and possible options.
  • Bookings are essential and full payment is required at time of booking.
  • Women must not be pregnant, for the reasons why please see our FAQ's
  • Swimmers must not have any open cuts or infections at the time of the encounter.
  • Hair must be worn loose with no hair ties or clips in the hair - if you have beads in your hair, you will need to wear a swimming cap, which you will need to supply.

Please note: The structure and the animal behaviours/activities included in the encounters are chosen to encourage enjoyment for both animal and guest, therefore all encounters are designed with the animals health and well-being in mind and a maximum level of exertion each day.
