COFFS Harbour’s Pet Porpoise Pool is offering seniors free entry to the award-winning attraction tomorrow, the last day of Seniors Week 2010.

The Pet Porpoise Pool has two Marine Magic sea circus shows on Sunday at 10am and 1pm and seniors wishing to attend one of these show need to arrive 30 minutes early (by 9.30am and 12.30pm) and present their senior’s card to gain free entry to the show.

The multi-award winning pool, located on the banks of Coffs Creek at the Jetty, was first opened in 1970 as a rescue and rehabilitation centre and has delighted thousands of young and old visitors. The only tourist attraction in NSW to have dolphins, the Pet Porpoise Pool presents its marine shows every day.

Close and personal encounters with animals are a feature of the Pet Porpoise Pool and visitors can play ball with the dolphins before the show if they’re in the mood.

Seal and dolphin kisses and opportunities to feed the seals and dolphins are features of the interactive show, while afterwards visitors are given the opportunity to pat the dolphins’ bellies and feed the fish, green sea turtles, Port Jackson sharks and little blue penguins.
