Mermaids of Weeki Wachee

Weeki Wachee Springs -- where mermaids are real! The price is extremely reasonable to enjoy swimming, mermaid shows, riverboat cruise, and much more! Arrive one hour before it opens to guarantee entrance (the park reaches capacity quickly). Don't let the one hour wait time scare you away from this gem. The park's capacity is set so everyone can enjoy a day in the spring without overcrowding!

I also would encourage booking a kayaking adventure (separate admission) through Weeki Wachee (2-3 weeks in advance available on their website). Crystal clear water takes you peacefully downstream. Don't worry about paddling against the current, because the park will drive you back and get your kayak out of the water for you! Watch for manatees, but don't touch.
