The first store at the top of the street.

This is just a store selling Tarpon Stings stuff, especially sponges. It is interesting, but really it is just one of many.

We were a senior group and had a wonderful time in Tarpon Springs and really enjoyed the Spongeorama Dolphin Watch Cruise!

Definitely a required stop while in Tarpon Springs! Yes, it's a souvenir shop, but you'll learn a lot about the sponge diving history of the area while you're here.

Expensive. But get the free 20 percent off coupons and you'll pay the same as other places on the strip.

If you need a sponge, this is the place for you, small, medium. Large, or gift basket sized sponge. This is truly a spongtastic great place.

Small store with a decent selection of sponges but extremely over priced compared to others in the area. Staff was not overly friendly or welcoming either. Nothing special to see here.

I love the stores in Tarpon Springs. This one is always our first stop because we park next to it. Lots and lots to look at inside, every souvenir you can imagine! Staff is very attentive as with all stores in Tarpon Springs. Usually there are sales for multiple purchases so the more you buy the more you save.

Apart from a fairly informative video there was nothing but a means of selling sponges etc., Not a very nice place at all.

Old time shop with lots of tourist items. There were many people milling around, but no pressure to buy anything.

My husband and I decided to have a beach wedding. Being a local I knew I would save at this store. For less then $100 I was able to purchase all the shells, fish nets, and sponges needed for our reception.
