“Unethical seller”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

I was highly disappointed in this seller and would urge everyone to stay clear ofSpongeorama, even though they are the largest store on the sponge docks. I paid $45 for 3 sponges ($15 each). I told the seller I was looking for 3 bath sponges to give as gifts, and she picked these for me, saying they would "last a lifetime". When I got home, there was a card in the bag that said the sponges would last "3-5 years with proper care". All three of my gift recipients followed the care directions on the card, but one of the sponges lasted just 3 weeks before it started falling apart and the other two lasted only five weeks. What a rip off! For what it's worth, the seller was also quite rude to both my daughter and me. There are many places on the docks that sell sponges...take your business elsewhere!

“DO NOT GO ON THIS BOAT!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

I was on another boat and I watched the spongorama boat circling, chasing, and harassing dolphins. It was horrible. Please do not support them. I recommend the SunLine Cruise instead. I have been on that boat and they are actually stewards of the environment. Please please don't give these people money to go harass dolphins!

“Excellent”

Took the Dolphin cruise and stop for shelling. The crew was very informative and stopped when dolphins were spotted so everyone could see them. Highly recommend this trip.
