Mermaids in Tampa


Mermaids have mesmerized tourists at Weeki Wachee Springs for sixty years. And now, those females with tails could soon be on the state payroll.

The Department of Environmental Protection and the attraction are in serious discussions about turning Weeki Wachee Springs into a State Park. On Tuesday, the Florida cabinet was briefed on a letter of intent which outlines the potential takeover. But attraction marketing director John Athanason says there’s still a lot of work to do. “It’s far from a done deal,” Athanason said. “We now need to hash out a lot of the details.”


Like finding mermaids.
