Spend the day in Florida's own Greek Inspired Town - Tarpon Springs!


Let St. Nicholas Boat Line take you on a fun 40-minute cruise on the Anclote River. As you travel, your Captain relates the history of the area sponge diving industry, providing a hands-on display of the various types of sponges and their uses.

The highlight of the tour is watching a sponge diver in a traditional inflated sponge diving suit descend from the boat into the river. You can watch as he moves quickly across the river floor. He harvests a live sponge and returns with it to the boat. It's a fun time and a great educational experience.


Shop the Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks, enjoy a delicious Greek lunch at Mama's Greek Cuisine which is included.
