Buccaneer Bay at Weeki Wachee Springs State Park on Florida’s Adventure Coast
Visitors can take in some sun while relaxing on the white sandy beach along the pristine headspring where the world-famous mermaids perform daily.
Buccaneer Bay also offers two thrilling waterslides: The Cannonball and Pirate’s Revenge. Both flumes exit you into the crystal-clear waters of the spring. The rush of excitement will have you eager to ride repeatedly.
Buccaneer Bay is the ideal spot for swimming and snorkeling. For a truly relaxing experience, rent an inner tube and take a cool, lazy float on the natural river that slowly flows around the swimming area.
For the little ones in your family, Buccaneer Bay offers Lil’ Mates Caribbean Cove. An exciting water play area and wading pool for kids six years of age and younger.
It is easy to spend an entire day at this state park by splashing around at Buccaneer Bay for a few hours, and then drying off to check out some of the other attractions in the Park. Your daily admission grants you access to Buccaneer Bay, the mermaid shows, wildlife show, and river boat ride.
