Buccaneer Bay offers a fun-filled flume ride for thrill seekers of all ages. Our white sandy beach area and covered picnic pavilions provide a relaxing day for your entire family. Weeki Wachee’s animal shows provide audiences with an entertaining and educational look at domesticated birds and reptiles.

Thanks for sending this to me, Maura! I may be too young though! I'm sure there are lots of lovely mermaids out there just waiting to apply. Loved their show

Can't wait to audition!

Haven't heard back after sending in a headshot and resume, am I supposed to receive confirmation?

Can the family come to watch? My daughter really wants to see mama audition!

Are benefits of any sort offered?

What is the time and distance on the endurance swim?

57 years ago my sister Pam tried out to be one of their mermaids.♥️

Still waiting on that manatee audition announcement. I'm your gal! #iamgoodatfloating

Pay your actors a livable wage!

That’s it! I’m quitting my job and am on my way! 🧜🏼‍♀️☀️🌊

Where do I send my audition tape?

what exactly does the endurance test and underwater audition consist of? may have any further details or any example?

will i be disqualified if I have visible tattoos?

Too bad I’ll be back home! I mean I really hate to pass up that 12 $ an hour

As long as they would actually hire mermaids over 30.... I know of several beautiful, highly qualified candidates!!!

Tom Lambui I’m sorry you did Not pass your audition but I heard you got an Honorable Mention for how well you were able to get everything into the bikini. 👍🏻

$12 tho 😞 I already make $15 plus tips wish it payed more u know danger pay

I had my vacation booked there , then clicked on web site only to see that they were closed doing renovation. Grandkids and grandma very disappointed. Oh well, I am sure the park And the mermaids will be ready for next year trip 😔

I did this audition about 6 years ago. I didnt make it, but I am so glad that I at least tried out and had fun doing so.

I can’t wait to try out again 🙂 sent in my application

This is an awesome show.

I'm always busy on these audition days, and miss out every time!

It only says “at least 18” sooo 55 is over 18 😂😂

Dana, go for it but hurry as time is running out.

Oh cool!! Go girl!

Had one in my backyard for about 10 years as a kid. Didnt know they were endangered

Several years ago, my brother and I were hiking near Weeki Wachee and we found a large gopher tortoise that had a crack in its shell. It was still alive and the crack was wide enough that you could see its flesh and blood. My brother thought it had been hit by a jeep.

Yeah, Angee!!! You are so awesome!!!! I will be careful not to step on the babies 🙂

My uncle picked up a baby gopher tortoise one time and it peed on him

Eleni Zoe- can we please go already!!?

This photo is more like the Weeki Wachee that I remember as a child. There was no water park there then and the mermaids used to wear orange bathing suits with white fins & masks. I am trying to remember but from the looks of this photo the girls maybe dived into the water from on top of the theater? I don't remember them using a tunnel tube like they do today to get into the water. But I was very young then, only a few years old so it is hard to remember the exact details. It brings back so many wonderful memories seeing the photos of how things used to be. Thank you for posting!

Awesome and beautiful

This shows the natural spring before they added the man made peninsula that restricted the flow and changed the river below

Yvette D Pryor, two of our favorite places!!! Senoia AND Weeki Wachee!!! What are the chances?!?
