  • This was a fabulous experience. Captain George engaged the passengers while he shared his extensive knowledge of Tarpon Springs and the sponge diving history. The sponge diving demonstration was entertaining and educational. Definitely encouraging my friends, family, and guests to spend an hour in Tarpon on this historic vessel.
  • The most amazing tour of the river and a remarkable walk through history of sponge diving! The stories Capt. George regaled we’re fascinating and taught us so much! This tour cost under $20 and it was The BEST thing we did in Tarpon Springs! A must do! Thx Capt. George!
