The museum needs a update. The exhibits are falling apart. The information could be educational, but the exhibits are in need of some tlc.

Two things I should have remembered to do before booking this cruise scam was to check Trip Advisor ratings and checking with the Tarpon Springs Chamber Of Commerce. What a fiasco! I had my sister & 2 nieces visiting from out of state and we were treated with disrespect by the pushy "ticket taker" that became quite agitated when we... More

I was highly disappointed in this seller and would urge everyone to stay clear ofSpongeorama, even though they are the largest store on the sponge docks. I paid $45 for 3 sponges ($15 each). I told the seller I was looking for 3 bath sponges to give as gifts, and she picked these for me, saying they would "last a... More

I was on another boat and I watched the spongorama boat circling, chasing, and harassing dolphins. It was horrible. Please do not support them. I recommend the SunLine Cruise instead. I have been on that boat and they are actually stewards of the environment. Please please don't give these people money to go harass dolphins!

Took the Dolphin cruise and stop for shelling. The crew was very informative and stopped when dolphins were spotted so everyone could see them. Highly recommend this trip.

After watching a film about the sponge industry, we became "sponge experts". Being an expert entitled me to 10% off my purchases.They have a wonderful selection of the different kinds of sponges and information on the uses. I also bought some olive oil hand lotion that is wonderful.

I took the $18 Spongeorama boat tour and stop-over for shelling and felt it wasn't up to the hype they give. The boat tour just goes out to the Gulf with a couple of brief detours to try to see dolphins; didn't get any useful information from the captain. The stop-over for shelling was 30 minutes, not to go more... More
