Step back in time and enjoy the classic mermaid show, but remember this quintessential Old Florida site is also home to the deepest freshwater cave system in the country and abundant protected wildlife.
Perhaps the best-known symbol of the yesteryear of Florida tourism, Weeki Wachee’s iconic mermaids perform in pure aquamarine water that flows from a first-magnitude spring.
Kids and adults alike can splash and play against a background of stunning blues and greens, and a kayak trip down the spring run offers an escape into the quiet of nature.
In 2007, underwater explorers discovered new passages in the spring’s cave system and confirmed Weeki Wachee as the deepest known freshwater cave system in the United States, marking another unique feature of this classic Florida destination.
Located inside Weeki Wachee Springs State Park, Buccaneer Bay features two tremendous water slides: the Cannonball and Pirate's Revenge flumes. These slides will make you feel a rush of excitement and have you eager to ride over and over again.
Take in some sun on our sandy white beach or a refreshing dip in the crystal-clear spring waters, the ideal spot for swimming and snorkeling. To really kick back and relax, rent an inner tube and take a cool, lazy float on our natural river that slowly flows around the swimming area.
And no need to worry, there are certified lifeguards everywhere! For your little ones, you’ll love Lil’ Mates Caribbean Cove! It’s an exciting water play area and wading pool for children six years and younger.
