Inside the aquatic life of a Weeki Wachee mermaid

Florida’s famed Weeki Wachee mermaids have returned to the South Carolina Aquarium and will be making a splash April 12-15 with choreographed routines to musical numbers.

The fin-tastic activities will take place between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., featuring both mermaids and pirates in Carolina Seas and the Great Ocean Tank. Souvenirs and pictures will be available for kids and adults alike marveling in the mermaid magic. Tickets to the aquarium can be purchased at scaquarium.org/tickets-hours.

We caught up with Amanda Luter, one of the mermaids, for a deep dive into life under water.
