We followed the advice of previous reviewers, and went straight to the video about gathering and processing sponges. It was full of information, pretty much all new to me, and well worth the time. I'd rate it a must see in Tarpon Springs. It's an...More

Sponges, soaps, diving items, and funky atmosphere …. stop by and see for yourself. Outside, the St. Nicholas Boat Line offers a 40 minute boat ride, to experience a sponge dive.

Visited the Spongeorama shop and museum out of curiosity. Said it had the world's largest display of sponges (seriously doubt that). A rough and ready type shop selling sponges shells and soap. After five minutes I had seen enough and left.

The shop is very nautical in nature - mostly seashells and Greek soaps. There is a movie that tells about sponge diving which is interesting and a rustic museum with sponge diving artifacts.

I was disappointed because we purchased tickets for 11:00 a.m. to fit our schedule, and we were delayed twice to a 1:30 departure - which ruined our plans for the afternoon. The boat trip itself was fun - and the guys on the boat were...More

The folks selling the boat tour out front were loud and pushy, including recommending their own restaurant as the best gyro in town (FWIW we did not eat there but did find a fantastic gyro down the street). The store/movie in the back wasn't open...More
