Write to Your Favorite Mermaid

Tail Mail

The World Famous Weeki Wachee Mermaids want to hear from you!

In an effort to promote education, the mermaids are answering letters from all students under the age of 17. This will encourage literacy and is a great way for your child to practice their best penmanship. Have your child handwrite a letter to their favorite mermaid (or Prince), asking about the environment they swim in or anything else mermaid related. Visit our Mermaid roster page for a list of our current mermaids.

Each child will receive an autographed picture of their favorite mermaid. The mermaids will read each letter, and their videoed response will get posted on our Facebook page and Twitter page — follow us today to see the latest images and news coming from the park!

Feel free to have your child include any drawings they may want to include. Please do not choose more than one mermaid or Prince to write to. Please be patient as we get numerous letters and it does take time to respond. Make sure to include the following in the letter:

  1. Name of the child
  2. Age of the child
  3. Email address or phone number in the event we need to contact you

All letters can be sent to:
Weeki Wachee Springs State Park
Attn: “Tail Mail”
6131 Commercial Way
Weeki Wachee, FL 34606

We look forward to your letters!

“Tail Mail” is sponsored by the Friends of Weeki Wachee Springs State Park.
