Wondering where to begin your mermaid journey? Let the Mermaid Tale Trail Passport guide you. We've put together an itinerary featuring a recommended path to discover all twenty-seven statues, starting from our Welcome Center in the charming historic district of Brooksville.

The Kraken

The statue depicts a Kraken’s tentacles rising up from a dark sea, as if being summed to do the bidding of the mermaid herself! Her loving features, soft appearance and shimmering tail provide a sense of peacefulness for those crossing her path, unaware of the beast that she is about to release from the depths below.
