Splish n' Splash at Buccaneer Bay

A view of the water slides at Bucchaneer Bay.

Located inside Weeki Wachee Springs State Park, Buccaneer Bay features four tremendous water slides, three of which drop you off in natural Weeki Wachee Springs. For the true thrill-seeking water slide enthusiasts, try the exhilarating, fun-filled Cannonball and Thunderbolt flumes! These slides will make you feel a rush of excitement and have you eager to ride over and over again.

Buccanner Bay

Take in some sun on our sandy white beach or a refreshing dip in the crystal-clear spring waters, the ideal spot for swimming and snorkeling. To really kick back and relax, rent an inner tube and take a cool, lazy float on our natural river that slowly flows around the swimming area.

And no need to worry, there are certified lifeguards everywhere! For your little ones, you’ll love Lil’ Mates Caribbean Cove! It’s an exciting water play area and wading pool for children six years and younger.

When you need to take a snack break, you and your family can picnic in one of our many covered pavilions, purchase refreshments at our concessions or enjoy a delicious meal at our seasonal restaurant.

Buccaneer Bay truly has something for everyone in your group to enjoy!
