I told you earlier this month about SEA LIFE Orlando hosting visits from the world-famous Weeki Wachee Mermaids, and last weekend, I had the chance to check it out for myself.
The lovely mermaids swam hourly throughout the day in the aquarium’s Pacific Ocean tank, to the delight of guests of all ages. The children were especially awed by the aquatic ladies, who interacted with them through the glass.
And while one mermaid was in the water, another was stationed further along the aquarium’s path over by the stingray tank to meet-and-greet guests.
I had the chance to talk with one of those mermaids, and she said she had to train for over a year to get really good at being underwater, breathing through the tube. That’s dedication, and it shows when you see them in the aquarium swimming around with the fish and stingrays.
The Weeki Wachee Mermaids only have one more weekend of shows (Oct 19-21), and all the mermaid fun is included with admission. For more information, head to visitsealife.com/orlando.
