We apologize for the inconvenience, but the mermaid shows and Wilderness Cruise at Weeki Wachee Springs State Park are temporarily unavailable. Guests are welcome to visit Buccaneer Bay Water Park. Kayaking, picnic areas, concessions and the park gift shop are all available. Please check back here for further updates.
A towel. A soft-sided thermo bag with plenty of water (non-disposable containers only), snacks or lunch (only in a non-disposable container), and a camera (don’t want to miss that picture of grandma in the kayak!). A dry bag or box is good to have for your cell phone or remote control car keys.
The following items are not allowed on the Weeki Wachee River: alcoholic beverages, pets, inflatable inner tubes, rafts or similar flotation devices (inflatable kayaks or boats that are USCG approved are permitted only after Boating in Florida staff inspection), motorized vessels of any type, disposable items included but not limited to plastic, aluminum, glass, styrofoam paper, and fireworks are all prohibited.
In case of thunder and lightning, the best course of action is to pull over to the nearest accessible shore. Pull your kayak or canoe up onto the shore so it does not float away. Leave your paddles in the kayak/paddleboard. Crouch low to the ground and do NOT huddle together. Stay a few feet apart from each other. As soon as you feel the lightning has passed, resume your paddle.
In accordance with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and Chapter 780, Part I, Florida Statutes, the Florida Civil Rights Act, Weeki Fresh Water Adventures is committed to providing accessible facilities, programs, and services for all people, including those with disabilities, to participate in kayaking. We welcome your call prior to your visit at (352) 597-8484 so that we may assist and safely include everyone to the best of our ability.
