For $10.00 we had a very informative and enjoyable trip. Learned a lot about the different types of sponges. Very friendly staff. Well worth the $10.00 and time.

For just $10 you get the education of a lifetime about the Sponge Industry. 40 minutes of information and fun. I highly recommend this to all ages.

What a great way to get to see Tarpon Springs harbor and learn about the Sponge Business of Tarpon Springs. For $10 ($9 seniors) you board a replica sponge boat and head out into the harbor to have an authentic demonstration of sponge harvesting. On...More

Only $10 for a 40 min demonstration about the sponge diving and harvesting business. We found it worthwhile and was fascinated watching the diver put on over 170 lbs of gear.

We saw the other reviews on trip advisor and wanted to try this little boat ride. The price was right at $10 a person, and the little white and orange boat fit right in with the Greek look and feel of Tarpon Springs. The older...More

Same for us we saw a stand, but there was more than one tour. This one was part of the state parks. We also took the short trip about 45 minutes. There was a longer trip if you were interested.
