My ten-year-old son said it was fun and my 16 year old daughter "loved it." Just long enough to give us entertaining information. The crew were all very nice and welcoming. Our diver, Frank, posed for pictures and answered all of our questions. Great time with deals on sponges after the tour. I would go again.

Our captain, diver and crew were amazing! Fun, quick little trip with history on the area, diving, and sponge harvesting. Our children enjoyed it and we learned a lot while having fun!

We wanted to take a boat ride and learn about sponge diving in Tarpon Springs, FL. We found St. Nicholas tour, paid our $8, waited for the next tour and hopped on board. The tour is short.

Boat is old, tour is short, and not really worth the money. Took us in the river, turned around and wow that was the tour. Not recommended. Just taking your money.
