Since 1947, Weeki Wachee Springs State Park has been dazzling visitors with its beautiful, mesmerizing mermaids who swim in its cool, crystal-clear waters. This legendary enchanted spring, the only one of its kind in the world, is one of Florida’s most unique roadside attractions.

This amazing park also offers kayak rentals, paddling adventures and river boat cruise.

Weeki Wachee Springs State Park is a magical entrance into a mysterious blue underwater world of mermaids, manatees, turtles and bubbles. Sitting in the 400-seat submerged Mermaid Theater, you’ll feel like you’re inside the flowing spring itself, transported back to simpler times before super theme parks and super highways.

And there’s so much more to see and do inside this stunningly beautiful 538-acre park. There’s Buccaneer Bay, Florida’s only spring-fed waterpark, with a sandy white beach, swimming area, and 4 waterslides for thrill seekers of all ages. Hop on board a relaxing River Boat Cruise and experience the natural splendor of Florida’s wildlife, flora, and fauna, or rent a kayak or canoe and set off on your own adventure. Take in our entertaining and educational Animal Show and get up close to native wildlife like alligators, snakes, and turtles.

Come to Weeki Wachee Springs State Park and see a delightful side of Florida lore where dreams really do come true. You can also visit our official page at Florida State Parks/Weeki Wachee Springs
