The spring’s average discharge is 112 million gallons a day. The sandy-bottomed spring pool is large, at 165 feet by 210 feet, but the vent is a small 20-foot by 3-foot opening through exposed limestone rock at a depth of 185 feet. The force of the discharge is too great for safe entry except during drought conditions.
There is much to see and do at this fantastic place that is only a mile square called Weeki Watchee. I love going and tubing and swimming in the springs and crystal blue water. When exploring the river you may be so lucky to come across a West Indian Manatee
Come and experience the natural beauty of the crystal clear waters of the Weeki Wachee River and enjoy a great outdoor experience while canoeing or floating down this beautiful springs.
