Divers explore the caves under Weeki Wachee



For more than 60-years tourists have been flocking to Weeki Wachee to see the park’s world famous mermaids.

Yet, Weeki Wachee would never be if not for its first magnitude spring. At times, more than 200-cubic-feet of fresh water per second rushes up from deep underground.

The mermaids call it their fountain of youth.

“I would love to go cave diving and just see what’s down there,” said park mermaid Marissa Perez.
