I think you are referring to the Weeki Wachee Springs State Park, about an hour north of Tampa. Nicknamed the City of Live Mermaids, Weeki Wachee is an actual spring that has become one of Florida’s oldest attractions. The first “mermaids” performed in the underwater theater in 1947. The website claims that the spring is do deep the “bottom has never been found”, and each day over 117 million gallons of water come out of the underwater caves. The spring’s basin is 100 feet wide, and the “mermaids” swim 15-20 feet under the water’s surface. The current actually runs five miles an hour where they perform.T he Weeki Wachee River runs 12 miles to the Gulf of Mexico.
