A little too touristy for me. So if you are a touristy person maybe you would've liked it better. The redeeming quality is that they do know where the dolphins hang out and they go find them. We got to see a small pod of dolphins for several minutes at very close range without the boat bothering them too much.... More

Weather was perfect and we saw a dolphin! Tour guide was informative but not too over the top. We had a great time

Be sure to watch the video about the sponge industry. Quite interesting. I found better prices on sponges at some of the other shops in the area, but overall, very good!

My boyfriend and I decided to go with this boat tour as they offered us a really reasonable rate for the cruise. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The captain and crew were friendly, professional and knowledgeable about the area pointing out things of note and giving us the history of the area We cruised out into the Gulf to Anclote... More

Way way way too expensive and employees were not friendly which was not surprising since the owner Naomi was screaming at the employees and cursing up a storm!

From the educational movie to the selection of sponges, to the abundant opportunities to take lots of pictures, this was one of our first stops while recently in Tarpon Springs, Fl., and the quaint village. We'll definitely be returning when we make our way back, Spring 2017!

We decided to do this tour at the last minute and I'm so glad we did. We saw about 4 pods of dolphins. At one point, the Dolphins were riding along the boat with us. Then we got to spend about 30 minutes looking for shells on and nice little spit of sand. It was a nice way to end... More

Family and friends saw dolphins and collected shells at shell island. Crew was great and had great time. Reasonable priced.
