The mermaids are now on a three-show schedule Monday through Friday. Show times are 11 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m.. The mermaids will continue their four-show schedule on Saturdays and Sundays at 10 a.m., 12 p.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m.

During the busy summer months, Weeki Wachee Springs State Park is a very popular destination. Like all venues, there is a limit as to the number of visitors the park can safely carry. Although it is impossible to predict visitation on any given day, we recommend arriving before the park opens at 9 AM on the weekdays, and sooner on the weekends.
