Florida mermaids return to South Carolina Aquarium

The Weeki Wachee Mermaids return to the South Carolina Aquarium on March 28.

The Weeki Wachee Mermaids will swim back into town for a return engagement at the South Carolina Aquarium.

Four mermaids will frolic among hundreds of sea creatures, including 8-foot sharks, during three daily performances in the aquarium’s largest exhibit, the Great Ocean Tank.

The shows are March 28 through April 3.

The mermaids, who entertained here last spring, are from Weeki Wachee Springs State Park in Spring Hill, Fla. They are known for a highly technical and choreographed routine set to musical numbers.

The shows happen at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. daily and are included with general admission to the Aquarium. Photo opportunities with a mermaid will be available.

The mermaids have been entertaining since 1947.
