When we bought our tickets, we weren't sure that this would be a good tour, the sales pitch was very heavy handed. However, I will have to say that I was surprised by the tour. Yes, the captain and his assistant on the boat were quiet, but if you talked with them, they were quite nice. You just had to... More

We had a very enjoyable experience. The captains were very experienced and helpful. They went out of their way so we could see dolphins. Stopping on the island was a lot of fun with many shells to pick from. Lite lunch at Yanni's was delicious and very filling. Would recommend

The captains were very nice, great scenery. Stopping at the island for shells was nice. Drinks very reasonable on board. Only saw one dolphin but the captain tried hard to find more. The ladies selling tickets were very pushy and talked bad about each other. They were a real turnoff to the experience.

I had booked this tour for 36 people and found the staff to be knowledgable and interested in our enjoyment. They were perhaps a little overzealous with their constant phone calls, but I know they wanted to make sure we had a successful trip. We arrived at 10:30 AM for the 11:00 AM boat ride. There is ample parking on... More

Felt a little conned by the whole event from tickets, to "Lite Lunch", to the cruise. Fast talking, fast moving employees. Yiannis is good, but these "Lite Lunches" were over priced. There were four of us. Boarding for the cruise was chaotic. We didn't even get to sit together. I have a hard time believing Corinthian Yachts custom built this... More

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
