The two hour boat tour to Anclote key was fun and informative. The captain was very informative and helpful not to mention humorous. I suggest this tour for anyone looking to find pretty shells and enjoy a leisurely boat ride.

We stopped in here and it leaves a lot to be desired. It can simply be summed up this way: Both female employees in there were rude and really shouldn't be in the retail customer service industry.

Nondescript little tourist shop located behind a store one block off the main street. Various kinds of sponges and local crafts for sale, just like everywhere else in this area, but they did have an interesting short (and free) film about the growth and harvesting...More

There were other shops with better selections. We preferred the sponge factory selection and price. Enjoy

All these good reviews. It was dirty on the outside and the path down the left side of the store in front was cluttered with trash. The lady in the store was short with us and telling us she closed soon. It was 4:45 on...More

Typical tacky tourist shop. Not much more. Much of it not even made locally. If you're looking for more authentic, locally-made unique gifts, keep moving along the strip. I don't think I'd really consider this a museum (there's a free video being shown but I...More
