Mermaid show was great!

We loved the mermaid show and the chance to sit down and cool off a little. Liked the animal show too but it should be a little longer. The boat ride was nice and you have to... read more

The first time I saw Weeki Wachee Springs was in the early 1950s when my family drove to Florida for a two-week vacation in February. There were no Interstate highways at that time. Founded in 1947 by stunt swimmer and attraction promoter Newt Perry, Weeki Wachee Springs was situated on U.S. Route 19, the only route along the West Coast... More

Years ago they had alot more shows. The last time I went, there was nothing but the Mermaid Show that was worth going to, and even then, the curtain is old and needs to be replaced. They charge alot for what you are getting, and it is very misrepresented.

We loved the mermaid show and the chance to sit down and cool off a little. Liked the animal show too but it should be a little longer. The boat ride was nice and you have to pay attention to time schedule or you will be waiting a long time. Can't believe how crystal clear the water is but it... More

This place is small but classic Florida fun. I went here as a child in the early 70's, but it's been in existence since the 40's! The mermaid show must be seen at least once in your life, and don't forget to get a wax souvenir made for you! Along with Gatorland, Weeki Wachee is a must-see attraction representing the... More

This place is really amazing. The water is clear like a pool but is frozen. You have to bring an umbrella, becouse they dont have a lot places with shadows. We enjoy a lot. Definitly will we back!

Canoe it, paddle it or boat it. Weeki wachee is a peaceful ride through floridas natural spring. Spy a manatee or dolphin in early morning hours! Water is clear and always a chilly 75 degrees.

We tried to go on a Sunday but they were sold out. We were told to get there before 7:30 on a weekend in the summer and before 10 on a weekday. They don't sell tickets in advance so you're forced to wait in a gigantic hot line. Being as cheap as it is, everyone is willing to wait. Once... More

We went here a couple weeks ago and there is good and bad. There are alot of buildings and shows that either dont operate anymore or were shut down which was dissapointing. the mermaid show was very good we loved that it was the highlight of the trip. the animal show was just ok and short only 15 minutes and...

We rented a kayak and experiened an amazing time at the Weeki Wachee springs. The water is warm and clean, you can watch all the fish swimming around you and the tortoises too. There is plenty of animals running around the springs too and when you on your own you just hear the birds singing. There was lots of motorised... More

The mermaid show was very cool! We went on a Friday morning so it wasn't crowded at all! The spring was beautiful the kids were excited to go snorkeling! My husband and I had a very good frozen cocktail while we watched the kids swim, it was a little chilly! I do wish the slide and lazy river were open... More
