Magical Photo Memories

Whilst receiving your free seal and dolphin kisses, a professional photographer will be capturing those magical moments, which you will have an opportunity to purchase at the end of your visit. There is no obligation to purchase these, but the profits help with the building of new enclosures for our animals.

If you didn't buy your photos on the day and you've changed your mind, e-mail our Photo Department staff at photos@dolphinmarinemagic.com.au and tell them what day, which show and what colour top, hair and other distinguishing features the person has or was wearing (easier if you send us a photo of the person)! We will do our best to find your photos, make arrangements for payment and get them to you.
