If you are a grandma(no offense) or a elementary age girl, the mermaid show might be awesome. If you have 5 and 9 year old boys, it is just torture. The whole place looks like it was an incredible attraction at one point, but now it is dated and tacky and falling apart. The mermaid show itself is still using... More

this show started back in 1947-by a Navy Frogman (today he would be called a Navy Seal) well worth the $13.00 to see it. Takes place in Florida Largest Spring--no one really know how deep the spring is. Imagine young mermaids performing in the water completely under water,when you enter you walk down 30 feet into glass enclosed spring arrive... More

My review may be a bit biased because I have a 6 year old daughter who is OBSESSED with mermaids. The mermaid shows are definitely what brought us to Weeki Wachi springs, but it was a combination of all the activities that made us stay. First off, I thought the mermaid shows were fantastic. I don’t think some people realize... More

I came by a couple of free passes to Weeki Wachee and took a side trip on the way down to Tampa. I went when I was a kid but my wife had never been. Of course, being the middle of January, there was not much activity-no swimming, not a lot of kayakers etc. but that only served to keep... More

This is a 2 or3 star attraction unless you gave a sense of humor. The attraction is seriously dated. That is what makes it fun! If you Tim it right you get two different mermaid shows and a half hour boat ride along with the usual small retile show for 13 bucks an adult. The history of the place is... More

I went to Weeki Wachee mainly for the mermaid show as I had heard about it for years. Let me start by saying I am glad I have a yearly pass for the state parks as I would have been sore if I had to pay anymore than $5 a person to get in. It is a VERY small attraction... More

Very nice staff, provides ample time on the river, river very well marked. Prices reasonable enough to come back multiple times with the family - thank you! Water is crystal clear, quite a few manatees in the water on this trip, river otter, turtle and rope swings (not provided by the company but thanks the locals who placed them!) provided... More

The mermaid show was a highlight of our trip to the area. Definitely old Florida. They are not in a tank but in a Natural Spring. Put this on your bucket list. For kids and adults. Saw the Fish Tales show, 30 minutes, told the story of the mermaid show and demonstrations.

Ok, so it doesn't have high tech lasers, blasting music and sophisticated electronics, but what it does have is live mermaids! We visited when most of the water attractions were closed. The grounds were kept nice and we got a great photo op with a peacock! We stayed for both shows, one was an info show about the start of... More
