Three Reasons to Flip Your Fin Over Weeki Wachee Mermaids

Three Reasons to Flip Your Fin Over Weeki Wachee Mermaids

The holidays are here and we are celebrating in a big way! Our Festival of the SEAson events started in late November and last week we welcomed the Weeki Wachee Mermaids to Georgia Aquarium. Their performances dazzled and enchanted our guests before select AT&T Dolphin Tales shows and if you haven’t seen it, you’re missing out! Here are three reasons to flip your fin over Weeki Wachee Mermaids:

1. They put you in the holiday spirit

Some of the guests who have seen the Weeki Wachee mermaids could describe them “magical” and we couldn’t think of a better word! These mermaids are definitely a favorite and are asked about all year long. This year, the mermaids will be performing to your favorite holiday carols and getting you into the holiday spirit prior at select AT&T Dolphin Tales shows. Watch as these mermaids move and dance gracefully– all at no extra cost!

Date of their performances are December 11 – 14, and December 18-24.

2. Their vibrant history

The Weeki Wachee mermaids hail from Weeki Wachee Springs in Florida. On October 13, 1947 they performed their first show, an aquatic ballet, to tourists of the popular springs.
