We too were asked at the ticket stand if we wanted to take the discount meal offer and declined but the employee was very gracious. We had a couple of hot dogs down the street and recommend it as a cheap lunch. We had to wait a while in line while the boat was tied up to the dock, not... More

We love the Sponge Docks in Tarpon Springs and decided to take the Spongeorama Dolphin Cruise on Sat. Nov 8. 12:30pm to 2:30pm. They offered a great deal with the ticket price of $18.95 per adult and for an extra $10 pp you could get a meal with drink at Yianni's restaurant which is located by the boat and ticket... More

Purchased tickets (party of 5) for 4PM cruise at 2:15PM. Booth worker advised us boat was nearly full. At dock at 3:45PM no boat. Boat pulled in after 4PM. Only 7 of us in line. Waited until 4:20PM to check on boarding. No communication from cruise line at this point. Advised that boat was cancelled due to only 7 passengers.... More

So again I made the most stupid mistake of not reading trip adviser before we took this boat. We took the boat ride on 10/09/2014 They tried to sell us on some dining package, we declined. So, immediately we notice the rude, snippy attitudes, because we opted out of the dining package. Then we noticed two employees arguing, using profanity... More

We took the Spongeorama Cruise line dolphin tour. They are the only Tarpon Springs sightseeing cruise line that allows you to park your car, take a beautiful and relaxing sightseeing cruise and includes a meal too! The captain was wonderful and we got to enjoy seeing the Historic Anclote Lighthouse, and other Tarpon Springs historic sites as we cruised down... More

Took the Spongeorama Sunset Cruise and it was beautiful. Saw lots of dolphins and some turtles.. Also had a great view of a lovely sunset. The cruise had nice cold beer too! Will definitely be doing this again.

We booked this company in the past for our group and I assumed we would have the same pleasant experience. That was not the case. The manager/owner was obnoxious on the phone with me interrupting me several times. On the day of the cruise when I called to confirm, she kept trying to over bill me by pressuring me to... More

Took the sunset cruise with family & friends. Poor customer service, not very friendly. Boat was crowded. There wasn't much narration along the way. I would not recommend.

This tour took us out to the barrier island where we stopped and were able to get off the boat for 30 minutes. The highlight of the trip were the dolphins we saw as we arrived at the island. The captain took the time to drive the dolphins to get them to play in our wake. The crew was friendly... More
