The City of Mermaids celebrates turning 60

Published Jul. 19, 2007
Diving 30 feet deep in Weeki Wachee Spring, I bear no resemblance whatsoever to the lovely mermaids who perform underwater ballet in this submerged theater three times a day.

...divers from Karst Underwater Research, Inc. made earlier this summer upon entering the Weeki Wachee cave for the first time. The explorers have mapped nearly 3,000 feet of passage beneath the main spring to a vertical depth of nearly 400 feet, making Weeki Wachee perhaps the deepest underwater cave system in the U.S.
