Starting today, there will be 'mermaids' swimming with the aquatic life inside the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas.

"Our guests were mesmerized by the mermaids last year and we're excited to bring them back to New Orleans," Managing Director Rich Toth said in a news release. "We hope children will marvel at their performances while being inspired by the marine life and educational opportunities in our Aquarium."

The Weeki Wachee mermaids will be inside the Maya Reef Tunnel  today through Sunday and next Thursday, November 9 through Sunday, November 12 from 10:00am - 5:00pm.

"The mermaids will dance and dive beneath the surface of the Great Maya Reef, which is home to stingrays and tropical fish. Guests also can meet a mermaid up-close and have photos taken next to the penguin habitat on the Aquarium’s 2nd floor."
