Looking for a little indoor fun on a cold winter day? Escape to the underwater world of the Georgia Aquarium, where you'll find some extra special visitors... mermaids! That's right, the mermaids of Weeki Wachee Springs are back for another visit. These magical mermaids have made the trip up from Florida for a limited engagement at the Georgia Aquarium.
The mermaid show is a live actor show that features beautiful underwater theatrics by acrobatic mermaids. The ladies of the sea perform with special air tubes that allow them to stay under water throughout the show.
