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

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
