We had an excellent time on the two hour tour. The crew were great and informative. The music was fun and the time on Anclote Key, however short was so nice. Great for all ages!

Very cool people. Awesome boat cruise, and had a great time. Second time taking this ride, and both times were much fun. Saw lots of dolphins as well, though you can never guarantee that...

Had a great time in Tarpon Springs. We first walked around the cute little town, then headed onto The Spongerama Vessel, for a cruise through the river, then out into the gulf. Though we didn't spot any dolphins on our voyage, we did spend time on one of the islands for some great shelling.
After the boat ride we went to Hellas Restaurant and Bakery for authentic Greek food and bakery delights.

Took the dolphin and shelling cruise for 5 for my Birthday, with my friends and family who traveled from Massachusetts. We learned so much and had so much fun. All of the crew was great, and I look forward to partaking again. They played great music, we were all singing. We didn't happen to see any dolphins on this day, but we didn't even mind because we were having so much fun.

The shelling tour to Anclote Key is fabulous! They even loan shelling bags for those who did not bring any. My only complaint is that the trip is too short! Sure would love it if they charged a little more and extended the trip an additional hour ... hint, hint :)

Our only complaint was not enough time on the island because it is so amazing! However, it was exactly as advertised. Bring your own toilet paper if you plan to use the toilet.

Great time on the water. Our tour guide was a retired biology teacher and was very informative about the area. Had some funny “dad jokes” also. Didn’t see any dolphins on the way to the island it on the way back saw quite a few and even a bald eagle! And many more water birds. The time on Anklote Key was amazing also. Highly recommend.

I had a great experience and not only recommend this cruise company, but will definitely return. Chuck and Captain Dallas went out of their way to provide a great trip for everyone. They'd turn the boat back to give everyone a another view of the dolphins, and provide tips for successful shelling at the beach we stopped at. Fun, knowledgeable and caring staff.

One of the best attractions in Tarpon Springs. From detailed information on their website to making reservations and the actual tour itself, the whole experience was just smooth and amazing. Location-wise, they are at the best spot in Tarpon Springs, right in front of Hellas Bakery and Restaurant. The perfect tour to take after a hearty meal at the restaurant (your parking is complimentary if you eat at the restaurant). The tour guides are very informative, funny and will keep you entertained. Make sure you buy drink coupons at their kiosk before boarding to get a sweet discount. Perfect way to enjoy a ride at sea, go shelling and watch waves and some dolphins. We have already made plans to visit again next month!
