It's just about mermaid season at the South Carolina Aquarium! The famous flippered performers from Weeki Wachee Springs, Florida will delight spring break revelers once again with dives in the aquarium's Great Ocean Tank from April 5th-8th and April 12th-15th.

Donning brightly colored tails, the Weeki Wachee Springs mermaids will dive four times each day during their annual stay at the Charleston aquarium, wowing families with a choreographed routine. And this year, the aquatic beauties will be accompanied by a gang of deep-diving pirates, set to join them on their watery stage twice daily.

The mermaids and pirates will also be available for photo opportunities throughout the day, and will participate in mermaid and pirate-themed activities and interactive education stations focused on ocean conservation efforts. And the best part is that it's all included with the price of admission!
